Last week my boss was away giving a TED talk. This was quite a big deal and everybody around the office was quite excited. He arrived back on Monday and came into my office first thing. I enthusiastically asked "How did it go?!"
"It was fine, but more importantly, I talked to Leonardo DiCaprio last week. I told him I have Marina working for me and that she is single. Unfortunately he said he has a girlfriend."
"Wow. Thank you. You know, when I was thirteen I named my cat Leo, after him," I responded.
With a deadpan expression on his face, my boss said, "Your cat was probably more interesting and communicative than Leonardo was."
We came to the conclusion that he really wasn't worth it. So I started my Monday off hearing that not only had my junior high, movie star crush heard about me, but also that I could do better than him. Not a bad start to the week.
