“In high school, I was on stage doing a performance of “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” I did a half-split and popped my knee cap right on stage. You could hear it. I fell on the ground and I thought the curtain was going to come down and the show would be over. But, my buddy Robert kept going. He spoke to me as if I was the character. Maybe my survival instincts kicked in, because I just took my knee and popped it back in and we continued. I truly believe you can expect the unexpected when you least expect it.”
