recently-encountered oddities

1. Flew with a guy who was a Showcase Showdown winner on the Price is Right. Each of his prizes were silver (a truck, a gown, and a tea set). He recounted the story with the clarity typically reserved for one of my elephant stories.

2. Met someone who is fifteenth out of eighteen children. His mother had her first child at sixteen and now at fifty-six has a two-month old. This family also includes three sets of twins.
