I'm kind of a big deal

In the past 24 hours, I've had three people come up to me to tell me what a big deal I am.
Uh, huh.
On Tuesday, I had my talk with mountain climber (and altogether cool person) Laurie Bagley. She summited Mt. Everest last May, becoming the 19th U.S. woman to do it.
On Tuesday, she spoke to the largest of our city's Rotary Clubs.
The comments all went like this:
"It was funny, we kept asking her questions, and finally she looked at her watch and said, 'Guys, I appreciate all the questions, but I have a tea date with ThomG!'
"How do you rate?"
Trust me, it's not because I'm a big deal.
Laurie's just fantastic person, a caring friend.

I could have told you were more important than the Rotary Club.
