12. You underestimate your own power of influence, my dear!!!
You were the teacher, he the student. Even if he chooses to ignore the bits of wisdom you handed him,...he can't avoid his human impulse to "wonder". *LOL*

I recently (yesterday) had a similar experience with a neighbor. I just know he made some assumptions about me 'cause he's been trying to set me up with his son *LOL*. When he jokingly asked me if I was a "liberal" and found out that, in fact, I am one of "those",...he looked like he was in complete shock. Nevertheless, he waived at me as we passed eachother today. So, he must not really believe that those "liberals" are all bad, after all.
