Day 2 of 30: Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot.
Some time ago, I was talking to a close friend of mine about 2016 and how strange the whole year has been. We ended up creating an expression, “effect 2016”, to describe something incredibly odd and improbable.
After that day, we kept creating new “effects” (for instance, the Agatha Christie effect, aka when you read/watch/eat something so good that your old standards won’t ever satisfy you again) and we even decided to create an effect for each other.
He told me that my effect would be something like: why would you ever choose to do just one thing when you could be doing ten all at once and losing sleep at the same time?
