1. I had been sitting by this guy who I didn’t know for, um, like, five hours, from San Francisco to New York. And then I turned to him and said, ‘Sir, I won the Nobel Prize.’ I had to share the news with someone. He looked at me, did a double take because I was all rumpled up … Then someone in the front took their BlackBerry and went to The New York Times and saw the three photos and looked at me and said, ‘Yes, that’s right.’ So then I started hugging all these white men on my flight that I didn’t know.
