  1. The other day I was in the rental office of my apartment waiting to talk to the manager. Ahead of me was a gentleman renting a space for his SUV. He said he had a parking space for his Ferrari elsewhere.

    I laughed at what I thought was a joke. Obviously he was serious because he repeated the fact two more times to make sure the manager and I had heard him right.

    And I thought to myself – and so what? I have just written a book, and I think it’s a good book. And in my mind I felt great as I thought – try top that.
