He sat dead tired at the bar.
The last thing he wanted to do was to strike up conversations with strangers after a long day.
As he was sitting there, a guy started talking to him.
Jay thought to himself…
“Oh man, I don’t know if I can muster up the energy to carry on a conversation.”
So he just asked the guy a question…
“What do you do for a living?”
And then he just shut up and listened, genuinely interested in what the guy had to say.
He didn’t talk about himself at all.
When the guy finished answering, Jay would just ask another question.
And the guy would go on for another ten minutes.
After 45 minutes, Jay finally said…
“You know, I need to head up to my room and get some sleep, because I have another full day tomorrow.”
The guy said…
“I have met a lot of people in my travels, but you are one of the most interesting people I have ever met.”
