In fact, I think everybody is interesting. Everybody is a person of quality in my opinion. It's what makes them tick, not the surface things that matter.

People talk to me in checkout lines, airports, newspaper stands, you name it. My wife says that I have a savior complex because I want to help everybody. I say it's the writer in me that is interested in their stories.
HMMM. I never thought of it as a savior complex. But I am guilty of trying to help whether they need it or not tho. . Its a bad habit. The Huz says Im a natural busy body.

Just cause Im nosey Ive been trying to be a little more observant lately. I think we hear more stories cause were open to them. And we listen. For example I always talk to the peeps in line. Help them get stuff out of the cart if they need it. Everybody else just stares ahead and acts like the person next to them has cootiies. .
