A college professor taught us to only write about things we know of.
So when a close friend suggested I write something relevant, I went berserked.
Since everything is relative, what is relevant anyway?
Actually, what my friend meant was for me to write less about myself and dwell more on topics that may actually have a profound effect on mankind.
I never thought that blogging could help change the world. But here goes.
As kids, we were warned against strangers.
How many times have we been told by our folks not to talk to people we don’t know?
My mom, being suspicious of my ability to comprehend and follow rules, would often hire someone to pose as a stranger who would offer me candy. Many times, I accepted.
Maybe, even as a child, stupidity has always been my greatest trait.
But growing up, I realized stupidity wasn’t entirely to be blamed for my juvenile misgivings. I was, and still am, drawn to strangers.
Yes, blame the candies.
Anyone who offers sweets to kids must be kind. That was how I viewed it, back then.
If strangers could give me candies, what more can I get from them? Twisted, I know.
