Three international redeyes in five days (Boston-Madrid, Madrid-São Paulo, São Paulo-Chicago); no way to treat a 63-year-old (or 33-year-old) body. That’s why in the Men’s room in the Red Carpet Club, I passed a mirror (bad move) and figured out what “3 in 5” does—not pretty.
Q: When will I learn? A: Never. I had wonderful audiences in both Madrid and São Paulo. (I was asked by a TV reporter in São Paulo what made a “good speech.” My answer was “good body language from the audience” and “that I’m so exhausted by the expenditure of emotional energy that I collapse into the arms of the organizers the second I walk off the stage.”)
