Five for five

Last week, I did a randomized study – just like they do at the big university research centers. 

I randomly (kind of randomly) picked out five acquaintances of mine – not close friends, but individuals who did not hide out when they saw me coming.

I had prepared a number of questions about their lives: Where did they grow up? How big was their high school? What did they remember about their first job? Who was their first best friend? Why did they like her or him?

My findings were spectacular. All five participants answered my questions. In fact, many of my questions were launching pads for all kinds of interesting yarns about their lives. I was captivated and entertained by all five of my subjects’ responses.

My scientific conclusion: Everyone has a worthy story to tell. They just need to be asked.
