The Greatest Story I've Ever Heard

Will I eventually need to pay for my sin of routinely over-indulging in superlatives? Most definitely. 

But that day is not today, and here is what you paid your money for, this was supplied by the good people over there at Mental Floss:

A story about Harper Lee:

"The author of one of the great American novels and winner of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction had worked as a reservation clerk at Eastern Airlines for eight years when she received a note: "You have one year off from your job to write whatever you please. Merry Christmas." By the next year, she'd penned To Kill a Mockingbird."

In other news, I am now putting my literary aspirations on hold so I can focus all my efforts on resurrecting the now defunct Eastern Airlines in hopes of securing a menial job there...
