Today I observed the stack of bills growing in my peripheral vision and spoke with my dad after the final answer on Jeopardy was answered. "You want money? You want to come back to Michigan? Just leave. They won't know who you are. You can start your career at 40." I don't know whats going to happen, I explained, while a hand was squeezing my heart and the water from outside was flooding indoors. Head above water. Where are you going now? Where CAN you go? Haven't we been through this before? Too proud, I said I didn't need anything.
