A few days before the Today Show clip aired, the producer texted that she needed images from my past to fill out the segment, and she needed them fast. Frantically, I searched through my sparse collection of photos and the best I could come up with is the spread in The Washington Post from almost 8 years ago, all about the single life. Wow, what a blast to see those again.
