Shortly after I got this news, I was in a "well, what the heck now?" zone. I may or may not have called my mom. I may or may not have flipped out that I'll never be paid to do the work I love. So, a little later that day, I got the following voicemail from her... thanks, Mom. (For those reading this post in an RSS reader or on Facebook, the embedded audio files don't come through. If you want to hear my Mama's sweet voice... click through to the actual post.)
UPDATE: I didn't know where the little tune she sang came from, so I called and asked. Turns out it is a lovely sampling from The King and I. Here's the song in its entirety: I Whistle a Happy Tune.
