I’m not going to write a memoir because then I’d be self-conscious about regaling people at dinner parties with the same stories. I’d say, “One time, when I was nine, I saw a coffee cup like this, except it was a little different.” And everyone would say, “That is a riveting story, but you cover it in chapter two.”
