Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09

Conversation as I was leaving the Pru today

Random person on the street: Do you know how to run computers?
Me: What?
Random person: Do you know how to run computers?
Me: [worrying I might be about to ask me to help with a virus or missing DLL or something] If they're not Windows computers.
Random Person: No, I mean, do you know how to drive a computer on the Information Highway? Bring up all those pages and stuff? You know, pages?
Me: Uh, yeah. Why?
Random Person: Cause I just learned how to do that at an expo up there. [with genuine enthusiasm, as though he were telling me he'd won the lottery] That's a good thing to know!
