  1. And congrats to you! When I mentioned “good company” I was thinking of Mama’s Boy but I thought it was better not to name names 😉

  2. Thank you, John. That really means a lot to me, particularly considering the rest of the good company (including Jeremy!–I love that guy, and his mad and beautiful work).
