What a teeny tiny incredibly small world it is!

Friday, January 14, 2011

I went to my chiropractor today - he comes into the room and says hold on; pulls out his phone; flips through; holds up a photo on the phone and says, "Do you recognize her?" I look, and say, "But that's Hannah - where did you run into my niece?????"

He was in Minneapolis for a conference, and checked into a hotel - the young woman checking him in says, "Oh, you're from the Virgin Islands! I have an aunt who lives there." Chiro says, "What's her name?" She tells him my name - he says, "Hey, she's my patient, we know each other, we even have friends in common and have been at weddings together! I've gotta get a picture with you!"

And he made her promise not to tell me, so he could surprise me with the photo.

I mean, really, travel 3000 miles to some chain hotel near a mall, and run into my niece???? Wow!!!!! The chances of that happening have got to be 1 in (whatever the population of the planet is right now).

Just, WOW!

    It really is a small world and always seems to get smaller. That is a funny story.

    Too funny! I'm always finding this weird 6 (or less) degrees of separation. Gotta love it!

    That's a crazy story! This world so much smaller than we think. And your chiropractor of all people, lol.

    I looked it up - chances were one in 7,000,000,000 (or so)

Although since it was the US, I guess it's more like one in 300,000,000 (or so)
