I had to include the back cover, of course.
It isn't a biography, more like little essays, anecdotes and funny bits. It goes quickly and yes, it is light. In a good way.
One of my favorite quotes:
A note about me: I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one wants to hear how stressed out anyone else is, because most of the time everyone is stressed out. Going on and on in detail about how stressed out I am isn't conversation. It'll never lead anywhere. No one is going to say "Wow, Mindy, you really have it especially bad. I have heard some stories of stress, but this just takes the cake."And this one:
I don't think it should be socially acceptable for people to say they are "bad with names." No one is bad with names. That is not a real thing. Not knowing people's names isn't a neurological condition; it's a choice. You choose not to make learning people's names a priority. It's like saying, "Hey, a disclaimer about me: I'm rude."Dustin has been telling me that for years, but this was much more convincing for some reason.
