wewe know a lot of people have, oh gee, real quirky problems that they wouldn’t dare have anyone know. But one of my problems happens to show: I’m late. I guess people think that why I’m late is some kind of arrogance and I think it is the opposite of arrogance. I also feel that I’m not in this big American rush, wewe know, wewe got to go and wewe go to go fast but for no good reason. The main thing is, I want to be prepared when I get there to give a good performance au whatever to the best of my ability. A lot of people can be there on time and do nothing, which I have seen them do, and wewe know, all sit around sort of chitchatting and talking trivia about their social life. Gable alisema about me, “When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work.”
