How to make me feel like a million bucks:
Be a seventh-grade violinist with a terrific personality in a string quartet I've been coaching since January, and invite me to your school strings concert. See me there, light up with excitement, scream my name, run toward me and throw your arms around me. Then thank me profusely for coming, and ask if you can introduce me to all your friends and teachers.
Yep, that'll make me feel like a million bucks.
