When I dropped Physics as my major at UC Berkeley, I had to call and tell my dad. My father actually worked in the Lawrence Berkeley Lab in the Physics Department when I was a toddler and it was a hard call for me to make; not only was I telling him that I was dropping Physics, I was admitting that I was going to major in Theatre instead.
His response was: “Well, sweetie, there’s no better preparation for life.” And that is why my dad is awesome.
He flew from Miami to see my first play at Berkeley…and brought his posse. All of these gentlemen have known me since I was in diapers. And yes, I have braces.
