I was working at a big advertising firm. She came in as a sales exec from the phone company, interviewing random employees about the new phone system. “What kind of features would you want on your desk set?” she asked. I was feeling a bit self-important, as ad guys do and replied, “I want speed dial, special rings, earpiece volume control, speaker phone—.” “You can stop right there,” she said. “We’ve got just the set for you. It’s a couple of tin cans and a wire.” Brilliant.
Postscript: Since our first date we haven’t been apart for a day in 25 years.
