Did you know that German Chocolate Cake was invented in America by a man named Sam German? I didn’t. How about the fact that each unpopped kernel of popcorn has one drop of water inside? Still seems impossible to me.

I remember sitting at the kitchen table with my late grandfather Abram. Each morning he had his cup of coffee, a pile of toast and each month, a new issue of the Reader’s Digest. The family magazine was a family favorite. It makes sense that grandpa liked this publication. He was a humble man. When he told stories, they were just like the ones in the pages of the magazine, impossible to believe, funny and typically American.

People are interesting things. I write about them and what makes them interesting.
