I live in rural central Illinois. A car pulls into the driveway with a
Virginia license plate. Out walks this very big man with a very thick
Russian accent and proceeds to tell me he's in the area selling childrens
books. He said he saw my playground in my yard for my kids. Shows me a book
where he has been to the small towns in that area selling these books and
where the parents have given their names,their kids names and ages. And I
can't help but be suspicious the whole time because this guy was very
adamant about trying to speak to my wife I can only assume why. After
telling him several times I was not interested and would not give him any

The thing that got me was there was nothing special at all about these

childrens book salesman from Virginia.
Call me crazy(most of my friends already do) but why would anyone give a
complete stranger that much information without any concern...
