Parable #7: Eric



Some people are unforgettable for the most trivial of reasons. Once when I was a junior in high school, Eric Schwartz stopped me in the hall and asked me a question. “When you shave, do you shave up like this, or down like this?” Eric was a year below me. I didn’t particularly like him and had next to nothing to do with him. I think of him, on average, a couple of times a week.
