Interesting story:  Saw a guy sitting in the chair of a dorm room the first day I transferred to Bradley University from Rockford College.  Never spoke to the guy - really only saw him for 10 seconds.  Asked a friend who he was.  She said she hardly knew him, but she did know that his dad was a magician and that he had a funny last name.  She asked me why I wanted to know this information, and I said it was because I was going to marry that man.  And three years and a few days later, I did!  Still happily married 35 years later!!
