Julian and I were recently talking about how we'd like to meet people other than the young single catholic crowd in our city (which is great, but can be stifling). The conversation went something like this:
A: I want to meet people.
J: so do I. how do we do that?
A: I don't know. join a class or something.
J: or go to bars.
A: yeah, but then comes the question "what do you do" and you answer, I teach theology. And then you end up talking about theology anyway.
Obviously this is a bit of a witness, but its not exactly what we're looking for. All the same, the conversation reminded me of a great Mary Tyler Moore episode where Rhoda hits on the brilliant idea to join a divorce group so she can meet single men...and possibly win a trip to Paris. Mary ends up being vice-president of the club. Watch it:
