Sometimes the idea you pitch to your boss at the news station is just the perfect idea, and everyone is so proud of you, because they were a little iffy on it when you described it to them but now, seeing it come to fruition like this, they can totally see where you were coming from and how they were just being a little close-minded, but now they see that they were so wrong and you were so right and you are very in tune with what The People What and you seem to enjoy your job as a weatherman and refuse to just rest on your laurels, which is admirable and enviable, really, and we’re all just so proud of you.
