Waiting Game
"Oprah climbed the Sydney Harbor Bridge with her 302 American viewers so a helicopter could take a sweeping photo for television. Except the helicopter nearly ran out of gas trying to get the perfect shot—meaning everyone had to wait for a half hour while it went and refueled. It was one of those moments where you have a choice: Either you're annoyed or you embrace it. It took Oprah a minute, but she chose the latter. That's something I'll never forget." —Jill Van Lokeren
