I recently participated in a speed dating event (no pun intended). I found that most of the questions I asked the ladies was to ascertain whether or not they would be any good as a crew, pacer, chaffeur, or race volunteer--instead of the usual dreams/hopes/aspirations bullshit. Is there something wrong with me?
Nope--this is a perfectly acceptable way of finding the ones who are 'keepers'.
As you were.
