***  Ned proves once again that he is the most amazing man in the world:

 

I was at REI.  There was a guy there wearing a Boston Red Sox hat. He said he was from Maine. I asked where. He said way up north, in the “county.” Madawaska. I said, but you were born in Canada, in Edmonston, New Brunswick. He said that’s right. I said, “You live on Route 1.” He said that’s right. “Is your name Peletier?” I asked. He said “how did you know?’

I figured out a total stranger’s name in less than 30 seconds.
