Anyway, as a little follow up - I emailed my dad to ask if he knew Ted. He does not. He went to a different high school, and also very grumbly informed me that his hometown was not THAT small and he doesn't know EVERYONE. Fine Dad, geez.
(I'll have you know that the total population of the town was between 70,000-90,000 in my dad's youth (and that was actually TWO towns put together, not just my dad's town), and the smaller ethnic community that my dad and Ted's first wife would have been a part of was around or less than 14,000...and there were only like, three high schools, so honestly...it's not like it was a huge metropolis....and why does my dad always get me so riled up just by speaking to me?)
Still, I think it's pretty neat that I ran into a guy the same age as my dad from the same hometown! And Ted was super nice.
Anyway...is it Friday yet? I'm super jazzed about the new season. :)
