“I got the call and I hung up the phone maybe three minutes before she walked in the door, and apparently I had, I don’t know what look I had outwardly. Inwardly, I was doing jumping jacks with a half twist. She said, ‘What’s wrong?’ I said, ‘I just got canned.’ And she went, ‘What?’ I said, ‘Yes.’
“She said, ‘Well, are you okay?’ I said, ‘Never better.’ It was literally like 500 pounds had just been lifted off my shoulder. I looked at her and said, and pointed towards the couch, I said, ‘I will be sitting right there this coming Monday.’”
