You can make a comment on someone's blog. Someone else reads it. Much later, she lets you know that what you said changed her life. After a long IM Chat and an even longer phone call, you learn that you've made a new friend.
I received an advertising supplement in my Sunday paper. It was a big, glossy ad for booze, complete with drink recipes. I learned that some people need a recipe for Bailey's On The Rocks. REALLY???
This will be my 6th Christmas in the past 8 years working a retail job. Every single store I have worked in has the same type of customer. She is the lady with kind of a frantic look in her eyes. Her voice is shrill. She is wearing WAY too much makeup. She argues about the price of everything while she is telling you what is crappy about the product you are selling. I learned that if I speak very gently I can sometimes get her to calm down.
I learned that My Cousin Vinny is still a funny movie.
