You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?
That's simple... quick, name the writer of the last new musical to win a Tony? You can't, now can you? So there's no way fame would go to my head, because there's no way I'd be famous. By the way, if you actually did answer that question, I bet you've also asked me if I'd like to try the daily specials and have a list of a dozen salad dressings memorized.
