Day 35

Alright, my people. I've brought a new element into this whole blogging thing. I don't know what to call it yet, so I could use some suggestions. Essentially, it's a wheel. Not like Goodyear. More like roulette. I'm going to use it to help me pick a person to write about from of the multitude I met today. My neighborhood had a block party which allowed me to meet a TON of people. It was salutation project heaven.

Ok, I didn't actually construct a wheel and spin it. I more-or-less picked this person at random. That will have to suffice for now. At least until one of my smart, inventive, and fabulous readers comes up with a name for this imaginary wheel.

I met Mark today. This is, admittedly, a bit of a stretch. You see, I've "met" him before. Don't arm the angry villagers, yet. Neither of us could remember each others names. I think it's fair to say that we actually connected relationally today. Mark's a fisherman among other things. We have a lot of things in common. We're both weather nuts, for one thing. We had a long conversation about weird weather stories. He told me about a rock that had blown through his window and got stuck 2 inches deep into a piece of furniture. This didn't happen during a tornado or hurricane. This happened in the middle of a standard thunderstorm. That's a freaky consideration that a storm could toss a stone with that kind of velocity. He's also really athletic (something we don't have in common). He has a national championship ring from his division 3 college. He's a really interesting guy, and he's right here in my neighborhood. Hopefully I'll be able to keep in touch with him.
