The following is an excerpt from an email from my friend, Sparkles (all names have been changed to protect the identity of the players):
How's your holiday going? Oh - nevermind, I'll just read your blog.
Real conversation that recently transpired. Francisco and I were eating dinner at "Not Your Average Joe's" in Beverly and there was this table next to us with 10 college students having dinner. So we are totally eavesdropping on their convo and it turns out they are all philosophy majors and they want to argue theories at dinner...
FRANCISCO: What kind of asshole majors in Philosophy? What are you going to do, graduate and become a philosopher?
SPARKLES: Dan Nolan was a philosophy major.
FRANCISCO: Is he a philosopher?
SPARKLES: No, but he does have a blog.
OUR WAITER: Laughter
