Who I Am is Much Less Interesting Than Who You Are

Dear Reader,

     I mean what I say in that title. Truly, whomever I am addressing, you are more interesting than I. I wish I knew you for no other reason than that you fascinate me. I hope you feel fascinating!

“What a strange thing to write and throw out into the internet,” you might think.

     You are right. It is one thing for me to write vaguely and anonymously to a whole internet of potential readers that I find you interesting. Give me a chance to explain. I find you interesting (much more than myself) because I don’t know, understand, empathize, or even think about you day to day. We haven’t met, and yet I passionately believe that you have something to offer me. I can say with security that I have something to learn from YOU. It doesn’t matter how pleasant, smelly, sociable, angry, inquisitive, or ignorant you are. You are a new soul waiting just outside my reach with so much potential for change.

     Now that I have made my explanation, I need your help. You don’t have to give me a summary of your looks, occupation, life story, and future plans. I only want 2 simple things.

1) An interesting fact about you

     -AND-

2) One piece of wisdom you have gained through life experiences. It can be as specific or as broad or as metaphorical as you want.

I will use myself as the example.

1) Though I do not excel at any other video or computer game, I am a more than usually skilled Tetris player. One might say that when it comes to Tetris, I am a “baller”.

2) I have 2 front-runners for this, and I never have a problem with more than one piece of shared wisdom, so feel free to post 2 as well.

Firstly, the truly ignorant are those who do not want to search for truth. Secondly, never try to substitute dish SOAP with dish DETERGENT when running the dishwasher.

That is all.
