I'm always one of those strangers who people tell their life stories to. Must be my seemingly inviting personality. I honestly don't EVER want to hear it. But they flock. One by one.

Maybe it's the crowd I hang out with, maybe it's the fact that they care about me and what I want to do with my life, but they listen to me. I can't tell you how many times I meet new people at this party house and from sexual deviant girls to guys tripping on acid, I've had many conversations that ended up with the human connection. We talk about a lot going on in our lives. The party house as it's dubbed is really a therapist house. We all nip the problems in the butt right away so there is no confrontation. I cannot think of a single person that I have met that are anywhere remotely like this group. Because they care for others and they don't mind sharing their feelings, how the day went, how we feel about life, the world.
I forgot what my point was.

Yeah, I prolly shouldn't tell it, but I think mine takes the cake as far as this storyline goes.
About 10 years ago there was a homeless lady that had some pretty severe psychological issues. Every time I saw her walking along the highway or sitting on a corner somewhere I would stop and give her a few bucks and find out if she needed anything I could drop off to her the next time I saw her.
She never made a lot of sense but she was always ready to talk a bit.
One night I was really down about some relationship issues and I saw her. All I planned to do when I stopped was to give her a few bucks as usual and ask about how she was doing but before I knew it we were sitting on a curb while I spilled my guts.
Even though she was crazy I could tell that she felt somewhat uncomfortable hearing all of it. She was REALLY ready to go by the time I was through!
I'm such a dweeb.
