One morning in an MBA classroom workshop....
The students are being taught about the importance of eye contact in a sales call and asked to practice with their partners.
That was easy peasy as, by luck or design they selected same gender partners or friends.
So the challenge was to look eye to eye with someone of the opposite gender.
By luck and design the Lecturer selected This Girl & That Guy to role play in front of the class of 50 students.
For a whole minute that they to look eye to eye perhaps for the first and the only time.
The giggling girl and the supposedly feeling demure guy performed for the audience and it is but natural for the lecturer to consider himself responsible for what happened some 6 years after that day.
