If a certain someone happens to be taking time away from teaching and happens to read this, you should probably know a couple of things.
1) After graduating from New York University, Kimberly Clarice Aiken pursued a career in public accounting with Ernst & Young, LLP and one of the Big Five accounting firms. Today, she is an image consultant and motivational speaker. A professional speaker for nearly ten years, she entertains and inspires audiences with her programs, using her varied experiences and sharing stories of overcoming obstacles, such as brain surgery. She is also a regular columnist for Pageantry Magazine, as well as a wife and mother of a son, Russell.
2) It was great hearing from you this weekend and, yes, I agree that the Miss America Pageant probably isn't worth watching anymore.
3) I may be going a bit "out of the box" with this statement, but it was great talking with you yesterday. For what it's worth, I do like you and am very glad that we talked this weekend. Anyone who can make me laugh and smile over 2+ hours of phone conversation is definitely a good thing. Ridiculous or not, you're a great guy that I would like to get to know better and hope you feel the same.
