Kate: I just wanted to congratulate you on being Time's Person of the Year.
Me: Congratulations to you as well!
Kate: Thank you, thank you. I knew I was on the short list last year, but this is really an honor.
Me: I had a conversation with a coworker and I think I really convinced him that I was on the cover. He said, "What, is it someone who looks exactly like you?" No, it's ME. And it's also YOU. Very existential.
Kate: Yeah, and it doesn't diminish the honor at all to have to share it with six billion other freaks.
