Find Out If Someone Is Normal

Step 1: Ask anyone if they are normal and they would agree before you can even drop that dot on the question mark that they are
Step 2: Change conversation and talk something irrelevant for a while
Step 3: After a while, ask if they have ever screamed, whistled, howled and growled when the lights go off in movie halls, scribbled the names of their friends or someone intimate along with theirs behind seats in public places for the world to see 
Step 4: Wait for them to become sheepishly nostalgic and say with pride that they too have done all these in their lifetime 
Step 5: Ask if they would still consider themselves normal now...

Point: Normality is so dissuasive. Some agree that majority behaviour is normal behaviour. "If you can't beat them, join them" goes the proverb. Yet, everyone has been a crackpot sometime or the other,  thus proving that "everybody is somebody's fool" and that no one is wise enough to judge another. "Let s/he who has not sinned be the first to cast the stone" goes the Biblical line and if we think about it, there will be lesser bruises around.
