Do What Ya Gotta Do
One of my coworkers, M, is also a student at my tae kwon do school.
She's older than I am - she just turned 50. She's also ahead of me, since she's been doing tae kwon do for almost a year already.
So she's getting ready to take a belt test to get her green belt. I'm still a white belt, since I just started.
She told me the other day how nervous she was about her belt test. I told her I'd go and watch, and cheer her on.
"You won't boo me, will you?" she asked.
"Of course not!" I said. "There are 2 reasons. FIRST, you're going to do great, so there will be no reason to boo you ....
...and SECOND, uh, you're a partner at my firm. I'm an associate. I'm not going to boo you. I'm not stupid!"
Luckily, she laughed. #
