I have always been fascinated with the theory of 6 degrees of separation. My dad totally misunderstands the theory and thinks it means a loop, but I know it means how many degrees of separation you are from any other person on Earth. I find it a little hard to believe that I am 6 degrees from someone in a remote African village, but it is certainly a lot easier in this age of world travel and world volunteerism. But what I do know is I have some pretty crazy connections to famous people in our world.

Christmas night we were at my parents’ house opening gifts with our family and friends. Picky Princess opened the American Girl doll dress my mom got her and said, “O-M-G! That’s so cool.” The Baby Boomers in the room said, “What?” I sort of wanted to say, “No, it’s W-T-F.”
