We had another offsite today, this time at the Pfister. Daniel Seddiqui spoke to a regional meeting of Rotary Clubs for 50 Jobs in 50 States: One Man's Journey of Discovery Across America. A man came up to me and said, "Daniel? I heard you have information about a cross country hike." And I thought he might be talking about the Cheryl Strayed book, Wild.
And then a woman spoke to me, noting that she really liked my talk at Park Ridge. I figured out what was going on. People thought I was Daniel Seddiqui, and it was all the more confusing, because of course we have the same first name. In all, a half dozen people made the error. At least one attendee made the mistake while Seddiqui was speaking. I took it as the compliment it was.
