Uh Oh it's 10 o'clock and I still haven't written my blog. What to write about?
Weigh in tomorrow. I think I'm finally losing again. (not much of a blog in that)
Healthy eating flew the coop today. (not much of a blog there either)
Meeting at work today. Tense and stressful. (nope not going there)
Just remembered, on my way to the meeting I recalled a funny/strange coincidence that I experienced years ago.
There is a nice little town in Central PA by the name of Jersey Shore. I have friends who live in the rural areas around the town. As I passed the exit off the Interstate today driving to my meeting, I remembered this story.
Many years ago, my friends who live in a little village just outside Jersey Shore told how they were awakened in the middle of the night by a stranger knocking on their door. The stranger was lost and looking for directions to get to "the shore". The stranger was convinced he must be near the ocean because of the Jersey Shore signs he'd seen along the highway. My friend explained that the Jersey Shore of the signs is a small town in CENTRAL PA and he would need to drive about 4 hours East before coming close to the ocean. It was hilarious to hear my friend relate this incident.
The rest of the story....
About 10 years later, another friend introduced me to a woman I eventually became close friends with. We supported each other through some stressful times. Once, when she was going through her divorce she was telling me some things about her ex husband. I had to laugh when she told about the time they were travelling through Central PA and her ex was so convinced they were near New Jersey that he knocked on someones door to ask directions to the shore.
Now tell me! What are the chances that I would hear that story from both sides?
It's a small world after all.
Swallow some sunshine tomorrow.
