Over the weekend MLWN and I had 3 almost-but-not-quite small world encounters.
- The mother of one of YW's classmates went to UCSB at the same time I did, but we had never encountered one another while at school.
- The mother of one of the boys on YW's soccer team was a whitewater guide on the American River (working for ARTA) at the same time I was guiding on that river while working for OARS, but we never met while we were Bitchen Whitewater Guides.
- The father of that same kid attended a short-lived military-themed prep school in Santa Barbara at the same time as the high school version of MLWN was hanging out with guys who went to said school, but they had never met at the time.
For a real small world story, I'll give you this.
- The first week of Freshman year at UCSB I ran into the girl I sat behind in 8th Grade Geography class when we were in Jr High in Rockville, Maryland. I had moved to Wisconsin after the 9th grade and then to LA after my Junior year of high school. She had moved from Maryland straight to California after Sophomore year.
