Check out this beautifully conceived and well done concept. Put two strangers in a ballpit with some pre-written mixer questions and then stand back and watch the laughter, surprises and simple joys of – get this – talking to another human. In our day of pseudo relationships engineered by cell phones, social media and sound bytes, we need to be reminded again that relationships begin simply – and sometimes in a ballpit.

Thank the good folks over at Soulpancake (brainchild of Rainn Wilson – aka Dwight on The Office) for putting this together.

Here’s one idea for putting yourself out there if you don’t have a ball pit:

  • Introduce yourself to the person in line with you – at the grocery store, movies, etc. Smile and say, “Hi! I’m ____. Tell me something good that happened to you today. I like meeting interesting people.”



On this day...
