It’s A Small World, After All

I didn’t do any reading or writing today, but a couple of interesting things happened. I went to Wells Fargo on my lunch break with my co-worker, Oscar. While he waited in line, I sat in the waiting room and a Wells Fargo banker came up to me. I was a bit annoyed and wanted to be left alone, but I looked up, and there was Javier. A guy I worked with five or six years ago at a restaurant in St. Paul. We were friends who shared a love for the Beatles, and I thought I’d never see him again when he quit. Then, Oscar and I went to Subway for lunch. The woman who made our sandwiches is from the same town Oscar is from in Oaxaca, Mexico. It truly is a small world.
Tonight, Ben and I video chatted for the first time and played checkers! It was wonderful to see his face for a change. Oh, and I kill at checkers. One more week and he’ll be here. Goodnight.
