73 People

That’s actually a lie.  It really wasn’t 73 people.  I don’t know how many people it was.  It was plenty!  I sort of remember the number 70-something; maybe 73, maybe 72, maybe 78.  It was a bunch.  It wasn’t 100 but telling the story gets very cluttered when I say all that…so when I get to that line in the story I say, “It was 73 people.”  No ambiguity.  Very clean and straight.  It’s better that way.  But it’s not the truth.  i don’t know the truth.  I don’t care.  It’s better storytelling.

Now that I think of it, I’m gonna start saying “78 people.”
