While living in Toronto, it was very rare (and I mean rare) to meet someone you knew when going downtown. Once I bumped into a friend on a subway platform, and that in itself was a story to be told. We were both shocked at meeting each other.
In Whitehorse, it’s the other way around. Maybe that’s why I always feel so refreshed after Thursday’s trip to the Market. Today I met:
- A friend and colleague I’ll be working with this year
- My boss
- A friend of the family
- Parents of kids I’ll be teaching this year
- 5 kids I’ll be teaching this year
- Several acquaintances (4)
- A couple of friends
- And the biggest surprise: FAWN
We’ve never met face-to-face, and in an e-mail I sent this morning, I mentioned we should get together to meet for coffee, since we only live a short walk from each other. Her and Michael have posted pictures here and there of each other, and I immediately recognized her when I saw her, and let me tell you, she is very pregnant, very glowy (if that’s a word), and very gorgeous. Have you ever met someone whose eyes have two colours? I couldn’t help but to stare at her eyes. Don’t take this the wrong way, please, but I know beauty when I see it.
Nice to meet you Fawn!
