And then I heard myself saying, "Oh yeah, Mr. Grant? Well you just wait. You haven't even begun to see spunk! You've never seen the Becky Povich version of spunk! I'm going to sit my butt down, stop dilly-dallying around, and get my book completed! What do you have to say about that?"
"Well then...I'd say I guess I was wrong....about you, anyway. You go ahead and show me your spunk. Show me that finished book. Then you'll have proven to me that determination, dedication and spunk can move mountains."
The Fine Print: Disclaimer: Neither Lou Grant (or Ed Asner) and I have ever had a real conversation, either fictional or real, spoken or unspoken.
