A friend of mine who's been around for a while (50+) walked out of his office the other day to an astonishing sight. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was standing on the corner, apparently minding his own business. My friend, a huge basketball fan, felt compelled to say hello.
Friend: Hello, Kareem.
(Kareem does not move)
Friend: We actually met once before... It was back during my freshman year at Harvard, up in Cambridge. You were there for the summer taking a class in Arabic. Summer of 1974.
Kareem: That was 1973.
(Kareem walks away).
