RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Making friends at any age is hard, especially during a pandemic. Here's the story - Curtis Kimball's wife told him he was getting weird, so Curtis - God bless him - put up flyers in his San Francisco neighborhood saying he needed friends and he was going to make pancakes. Around 100 people showed up. He had a second pancake party last weekend, and about 300 people came. Curtis' story reminds us whether you're craving carbs or connection, pancakes are always the best starting point. It's MORNING EDITION.
