andrea posted an assignment to think about the nicest things ever said to you. i think i’ve written about this before. but here it goes:
my final semester in college on of my favorite professors, John Ullmann, gave us an assignment. we had to interview him for this fake story and it was video taped. then we had to watch the tape with him and he critiqued us. after my session he turned to me and said, “ms. chromey someday i want to sit down and interview you. i’d like to discover the secrets that hide behind your eyes.”
the second thing said to me that i’ll always remember came from my college buddy tom goetz. tom was rather conservative and i am a bleeding-heart liberal. we were arguing about something. maybe NEA funding or something. he gets exasperated and says, “chromes, i may be a button-down oxford and you may be a grunge flannel, but we’re both cotton!”
i also remember the first time jaycie pointed to me and said my name. the whole fam was eating dinner at perkins. jaycie was in her highchair and she pointed to me and said, “jowee.” i think i cried.
and that’s what i remember. so, what does that say about me?
