at work we were asked to get to know someone in the org we don't normally work with. I just had a phone call with a guy in our DC office who said he chose to contact me b/c when he saw me last year at a staff gathering in CA he could tell I was "really into music." we then proceeded to discuss dream festival line-ups for 45 minutes.
Dad's day confession: sometimes I already know the answer when I call dad with a technical question. Asking makes him feel important and I like listening to the answer. Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!
