One of J.K. Rowling’s teachers is supposed to have described her as “bright but “not exceptional”” in a New Yorker article, which I will try to read but it is 10 pages! Wait. That’s not the point I wanted to make. The point I wanted to make was that I’d be flattered if any of my teachers recalled me as being “bright but not exceptional.” That’s probably as good as it’s going to get for most of us. Hell, a lot of us won’t be recalled as even being bright.
I’d settle for “Glad to hear she found work.”
