Holding on

FWIW, [Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang] called me last night. Crying. ...

So I cut him off, and I'm like, Jerry, hold on. Hold on. Stop. Listen to me. Jerry, you know what? It's been great knowing you. Really it has. And I think you're going to make a fantastic member of the Ex-Founders Club, alongside Woz and Paul Allen. I'm sure you'll find ways to keep busy. Maybe you can do some creative investments. Build an electric car. Or a commercial spacecraft. Open a restaurant in Napa. Take up high-altitude ballooning.

He's like, Steve, I don't want to go ballooning, I want to keep running Yahoo. I'm like, Dude, I want to turn my house into a polygamous retreat with Gong Li and Scarlett Johansson as my new wives, but that wish ain't gonna come true. And neither is yours. Sorry.
