You Had Me at Hello
My hands were shaking as I walked into the Assistant Principal’s office for the second part of my interview. The A. P. asked if I would sit at the table outside her office as she was talking to a staff member.
There you were, eating Chinese food with wooden chopsticks. You greeted me with the most dazzling smile. We exchanged pleasantries. You asked if I was interested in any of the new positions. We talked for all of ten minutes before I was called into the office. I got the job. I got you too. You had me at “Hello.”
