Eman: I Enjoy Good Back Stories

Eman (RE: Traveling with Bowser): I'm always interested in the back story. If approached and the time is right I always take time to hear their story. Being a Grateful Dead fan for most of my life there is a song called "Wharf Rat" that I heard early on that changed my perspective. The line goes: "Old man down way down, down by the docks of the city/blind and dirty asked me for a dime/a dime for a cup of coffee/I got no dime/but I got some time to hear your story." Actually, quite an interesting song.

Question: Do you spend much time listening to the life stories of older people?
