We’ve all heard of the six degrees of Kevin Bacon, or at least I hope so… if not I must be getting to that age where I refer to random concepts that simply date me. Oh well, six degrees of separation is a well know concept that any person can be connected to any other person in the world by six degrees. For example, Jim knows Tim who knows Jack who knows Jill who knows Terry who knows Brian who knows Sophie. Jim knows Sophie by six degrees of separation.
Me and Nate, two degree. HOLY COW! Then, upon seeing my two favorite bloggers on The Nate Show, I realized I’m three degrees from both the Petersiks of Young House Love AND the Bowers of Bower Power! Yup, I’m nerding out here.
THEN? THE EPIPHANY!!!!
Did you catch that? Three degrees from OPRAH! O-P-R-A-H! I mean, seriously, that means I’m four degrees from pretty much everyone. Tom Cruise? Check. Obama? Check. Paula Deen? I can practically taste the butter.
Conclusion: This six degrees of separation thing actually seems to work.
Now, at the sake of sounding corny, Aleesha has done a lot more in my life than get me closer to Oprah. She is one of the most talented people I know and she’s such a hardcore inspiration that I’m really just glad to call her friend.
