On an application recently I was asked, “Which figure from history or literature would you want to be?”. This was my response. I got the interview.
I was at a diner, and little to my knowledge it would be the last time I, and everyone in NYC, would be there. This classic diner was closing its doors forever that week. This is the owner eating a turkey dinner alone at 10PM.
Not having mono at that point would have been embarrassing.
