Does anybody listen to RadioLab? Well, you should. It's the best. Last week's segment discussed randomness.
Which is pretty random.
Because last weekend Brad and I went to a movie theater we'd never been to before to see Transformers in a nearly sold-out room, and almost had to sit apart until a nice group of "kids" scooted over for us. ["Kids" is in quotes because I think they were probably no younger than me. But they looked young. And they seemed careless and free. Which means that can't possibly be adults.]
And they started chatting with us. Which doesn't happen to me very often.
And. They were from Carlsbad, NM. My favorite town. Population: 30,000. Distance from movie theater in question: over 500 miles.
We caught up on the local gossip as if we were old friends.
