Cross connections

I have had a lot of cross connections happening to me lately.

I mean, you all know about my date a few weeks back.

Then I found out that my friend Kelly is dating a guy who used to hang out with my cousin.

The most recent was this.

Thursday, my ex calls me. He tells me that him and W. are done.

Then, Friday is homecoming. My boys are in the homecoming parade. Their team is riding on a float. I am standing around taking pictures.

As the parade gets ready to begin, the driver of the truck asks me if I would like to ride up front so as to not be left behind.

"Sure." I say... The guy looks familiar. I "know" lots of people from the school that my ex teaches at... I just don't always "know" who they are. I'm guessing he must be a dad of one of the players...

He and I hold polite conversation. He mentions that maybe he should get together some hay bales and have a hayride later this fall. I respond with, "Yeah... that sounds like fun."

About that time, someone watching the parade shouts, "Hey Mike!" and waves.

Like a wrecking ball knocking me over, I realize whom I am sitting next to... W.'s dad.
My ex's girlfriend's (ex-girlfriend?) freakin' dad!!!!!!!!

Yeah... I'm sure there are people out in the world that are okay with all these cross connections... I'm not sure I am one of them.


  1. Hi Dawn,

    As always a good post - I stop by and have a read every time you post something up, sorry just don't comment often.

    It just goes to show you how small the world really is.

    Hope you've had a good weekend

  2. Natasha,
    Thanks! For the compliment and for following. :) Yes... it IS a small, small world.

  3. Me thinks that the greater B-town metropolis is just a bit too small!
