“Page 73: Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity — your name in print — that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.”
One of my old blog articles (“My Many ‘Wives’”) attracted the attention of a Wall Street Journal reporter. She read it and called me a couple of weeks ago. Her story (“Does Your Work Wife Get a Valentine?”) is in today’s edition of the WSJ.
Our half hour phone interview turned into just a mention in the middle of the article. I’ve interviewed thousands of people over the past 30 years. Now I know how the other side feels. “That’s all they wrote? But I said a lot more.”
Oh well. I should be happy I got at least a mention. It is the Wall Street Journal after all. Navin R. Johnson would love it.
