“When I was a kid, I really wanted to be famous. I wanted people to know who I was and think, “That Lori, she’s fucking awesome.”

There was one, slightly large, problem. I wasn’t good at anything. I had severely pronated feet that made me trip when I ran. I hated getting sweaty. Athletics were out for me. I couldn’t sing. My parents wouldn’t put me in dance lessons. I was a ham, not an actor. In grade 4 I had one discernible talent. I could spell really well. I was at grade 8 level vocabulary by December of that year. Spelling bees weren’t really a thing where I grew up so I didn’t even have the opportunity to get famous that way.”
