I just have to share this because I am gushing with pride and gratitude. A few ex-colleagues threw me a little reception to congratulate me on my forthcoming book and to wish me good luck. That, in itself was special. But get this, they created a stuffed polar bear that looks like me! I have worn an outfit just like this (with pants, too). Here’s the picture. Notice the resemblance to the picture on the front page of my blog. I have a wine bottle in my hand because I love good wine and have enjoyed driving the Washington and California wine countries.
Buddies are great, aren’t they? As a diehard introvert, I sometime forget this.
