"Do your thing and don't care if they like it".
"To me, YES AND, means don't be afraid to contribute. Always make sure that you are adding something to the discussion. Your initiations are worthwhile"
Tina Fey

I found this audiobook to be delightful. Fey is funny, sharp, and entertaining.  She's also opinionated, passionate, and occasionally offensive. When she says " Do your thing and don't care it they like it" she seems to be referring to the world at large and I found it to be inspiring. How much less stressful  would my world be if I just did my thing and didn't care if they liked it?  This also gives the reader the opportunity to take the things that you like from her book and from her body of work and leave the rest.

The quotes that I've chosen seem to exemplify how Fey defines, "Bossypants". There might have been a time or two in my life when I have been accused of being bossy,and the book makes me want to revel in that bossyness and not see it as something to apologize for, but as something to celebrate and to propel the world forward.

Whether she is describing playing both Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin in one season, or her experiences at summer high school drama camp, or planning a Peter Pan themed birthday party for her daughter, she's funny. And I like it.
