Small World!

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
A few months ago, I happened upon a blog. Her name struck me as it had "Oregon" in it. I don't find many blogs where the writer lives in the same state as I. So, I popped on over there and fell in love with her blog.

We ended up emailing each other and got to know each other a bit. Turns out we live in the same city! HA! how funny! I don't know many people that live in this city, even though I've been here for about 4 years. I know my core circle and I don't often go outside of my circle of friends. Anyway, we decide to meet for breakfast. We were chatting about ourselves and such. Come to find out, she lives like 12 houses down from me! We have the same street name! She lives on one end and I on the other. How crazy is THAT?! We've never ran into each other, our circles have never combined and we've lived in the same city for 4 years.

We were emailing each other and communicating with each other via email when I could have throw a rock at her house! Don't worry, I won't REALLY throw a rock at your house ;o) Now, we can have coffee at one another's house and we don't have to pay for it!

It really is a small world we live in.

Wow, that's amazing. If you ever get a power shortage, you could send smoke signals to each other. Or beat a drum.

Or, pigeon carriers .... (this is fun).

That's CRAZY!!!

On my honeymoon, we chartered a fishing boat. We shared it with one other client - a man and his son. So there we were, in the middle of the carribean. We start chatting.

Where you from?
Me too!

What city?
Colorado springs.
Me too!

More conversations go on and it came to

What building are you in?

Dude. The guy sat on the floor above me.

Too funny! Similar situation happened to me...I went to a small town college in North Louisiana. I recently made a comment on a college friend's (male) blog. Turns out, he is the brother-in-law of a girl in my neighborhood bunco group! That 6 degrees of seperation really is true I think!
