Alma Maters - matter?

Friday, October 20, 2006

When meeting people for this first time, one usually seeks the 6-degress of separation. We ask a lot of questions - throw in a lot of names - trying to attach one to the other - to connect the familiarity. For me, the first question I ask is 'Which school (HS or University) did you attend?' And then I ask for the batch. Am I weird? Well, I have this theory that whatever school you answer with that question - is 'the' school that you a proud of. As for me, when asked this question - I automatically say the name of my High School - the University I attended is just a secondary answer to the question (if there's a follow-up).

So - do Alma Maters, matter?
