Have you ever noticed that there are one or more ‘cool things’ about people we know? For example, my brother Jerry. If you are lost anywhere in the north metro or downtown Minneapolis area; pull over; take note of the nearest intersection; call Jerry. He will direct you out (by street names) to the closest highway without pause. It’s the coolest thing ever. I know, I’ve put it to use often.
With my Bigg guy, I can read up on something and ask if he’s ever heard of ‘this’ person and he’ll list the 18 different things this guy or girl has done over the last 30 years. Once he reads something, it’s in his brain for good. It’s pretty cool.
And that’s how people roll. Get to know them; their ‘cool’ factor. It’s worth it.
My Oz man? Any WWII fact pertaining to Europe…pretty much. My Z’s? Great music they’ll know I love or movie lines from anything funny after 1995. Our friend Heath? Any fact or fiction related to Superhero movies. Swede? Whisky. Fact. One of my clients? He’s a clock maker AND a drummer (but a Pharmacist for his day job.) He always has good stories.
A co-worker of Biggs whom I’ve met and is a decent guy. Cool fact? His brother is some type of manager at one of our favorite Cold Spring, Minnesota breweries. One of our Kuvasz breeders has a wood working shop and installed their Koa wood floor in their home. She also rides a motorcycle. She’s awesome.
A friend I met while traveling to barbell seminars? Her hubby restores pinball machines. SRSLY. Who does that? Too cool. My ‘Sconny buddy Clay? Plays the bagpipes AND used to play with McBob. Cherry. Bigg has a client out in Cali who has his own train engine. SRSLY. I’ve seen pictures, it’s badass.
All you have to do is talk a bit to someone; ask a few questions and you’ll find out. I don’t know what my cool thing is, maybe that I love giving prizes? Dunno. I talk to myself all the time and still haven’t figured it out. Heh.
Maybe some folks are alcoholics and others are just voluntary drunks…Maybe some have drinking problems while others have problems enough to drink.
