To rephrase Barack, “It took a while to adjust to the slow pace of civilian life. When we were working in the white house and someone said it had to get done right away, we would have hours, not days, or someone could die!
When I was recently working with a publisher, they said that they needed to get it done right away and I said, ‘Okay, how’s tomorrow, or Friday?’ They said, ‘No, no, we need at least 3 weeks.’ To which I responded, ‘3 weeks? We planned Osama in 3 weeks!’
I’ve enjoyed having time to slow down, spend more time with Michelle, and play a few more rounds of golf. However, I do miss my anonymity. I dreamed of being able to go back to the grocery store or for a walk, which is a blessing and a curse that I can’t do that now.”
