Please Mr. Postman...

So I'm in bed today and my dad calls me from upstairs. He tells me I've got a letter. From Conan O'Brien. So I tell him that it's a cruel joke and roll over. Then he says that the letter is from 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 901 West.

::My dad doesn't know where that building is::

I sit up. Then I run to the stairs. There is a God.


A handwritten letter from Conan O'Brien. Yeah, I got it. After going to New York and seeing his show for the second time and giving him a hand made, hand painted tie; he sent me a letter.

The Great one said:

Dear Ruby,
WOW - you write a nice note. We try very hard here to make a good show every night and intelligent praise from someone like you makes it all worthwhile. It means a lot to me that you would take the time to say such nice things. Also, thanks for the cool tie. I hope you didn't spend too much at that evil NBC store.
It sounds like you're doing all the right things at this point in your career. Keep an open mind about what part of the business you'd like to be in and try, as best you can, to work with people whose work you respect. That's not always easy, but it can be done. And, most important, remember that no one, no matter how big or 'important' they are, really knows what they're doing. That definitely includes me.
Good luck and thanks for the great karma. I hope, someday, you'll give ME a job.
Your friend, Conan

He said those things to me. I am on cloud nine. When I gave him the tie, I never expected a letter from him. It was the nicest thing I could possibly imagine. Think about it, Conan wished me well. How many people can really say that?

That was wonderful. I'm posting this in the Conan O'brien community also, and seeing him both times (he touched me both times -- seriously) and now his letter were simply amazing. This is one of the best days in a long time. It just goes to show you, no one is beyond your reach if you can be brave enough to chase what you aspire for.
