No I didn’t. That was my goal. I wanted to become famous enough as a writer to be invited on Oprah, and turn down the offer. Not because Oprah wouldn’t be good enough (seriously, who could think that?), but because I’d be too nervous to occupy the same room as that brilliant icon, let alone go on stage with her.

We all need life goals. Mine has changed since Oprah went off the air and since I’ve matured somewhat. What’s one of your goals?
