I'm sitting in a coffee shop. Doing nothing. Which. I'm good at.
Couple at a table next to me
Urban white people with a cause. Aka. The enlightened liberals of Boise.
Probably in HR or something like that.
Talking about some group event they are planning.
One of them says:
"We need to set up flash cards by gender for table assignments to make sure it's balanced."
I don't know what this means. And so far I don't really care. Until.
The guy says:
"Well, how many different kinds of flash cards will we need?"
I am guessing he is saying that two types of cards. Or one for each gender is not enough.
The woman replies, emphatically:
"OMG, I didn't think about that. Great call..."
I was leaving anyway.
As I walked by their table I said.
"17, you will need 17 types of cards"
And I left.
