O Degrees

I’m not necessarily the most gregarious person in the world, but through luck of the draw I tend to know a lot of people. It’s kind of a joke around our house about how often we’ll walk into some off the wall place and I’ll know somebody there. Tonight we went to a soup party thrown by someone she met randomly on the Northwestern campus and damned if I didn’t know someone there. The host went to Georgia Tech and we knew that a few of the people were going to be his friends from GT. As we were walking around, sure enough I saw I guy I knew from WREK. This really does happen absurdly often and it is kind of fun to walk into some random party in a different city or a rest area in the middle of nowhere and run into friends and acquaintances.
