Since I was a young man [I’ve been] grounded in the sense that those things are sort of fleeting, and they are appreciated but I think I understood from a young age that if I was the object of someone’s affection because of what they saw or heard on the radio in three minutes I likely would not be the object of their affection 15 minutes later. So I choose to look at it like, ‘Thank you. That’s so cool that for this 14 minutes and 32 seconds left, I’m the object of your affection.’
