read
Expo talk

When people ask what I do for a living, I still stumble over the question. Because the story keeps taking new turns. It’s particularly funny when I go through customs. I have to rehearse so I don’t stutter. (Never stutter through customs.) “What do you do for a living?” Don’t stutter… don’t stutter… But the […]
