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.”
