I was given a box of fortune cookies. So I opened the first one tonight. It reads “You have an unusually magnetic personality.” It’s not very good for helping me predict the future, but I also can’t find any fault with the cookie’s claim. I don’t think I always was a charismatic fellow, or at least not as much as I am today. A lot of it I got from Scott O’Neal, former president of the Purdue Fencing Club. That guy could convince you to come out to a social gathering like it was his job. People always wanted to do what Scott was doing, be around him, share his spot light. I don’t know that I’ll ever match him in charm, but I think I did a pretty good job as a successor. So Scott, this cookie is for you!
