Penn’s Cave

At Starbucks, Wyatt turns to the elderly man sitting at the table next to us and, without preamble, asks, “Have you ever been to Penn’s Cave?”

The man launches into a long narrative about his visit twenty years ago. Wyatt listens politely for a while and then finally pipes up, “Actually, I wasn’t trying to start a conversation. I was just wondering if you had been there.”

Any thoughts to add?
