It's a Small World

I'm always amazed when something happens that reminds me how small the world really is - and how you should always be on your best behavior because you'll never know when your past will come back to haunt you.

Something along those lines happened this morning when I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in a good 11 years. If his name wasn't on his shirt (and I hadn't texted my brother to confirm his job), I never even would have recognized him.

It was nice to catch up (he's a sheriff's deputy, married, has two little girls and one on the way, and foster parents), but it made me a. long for the old days and b. feel like a slacker seeings that I have no kids, don't foster and don't save lives (or write speeding tickets).

I only run into people I met in the area so I never get to be excited about stuff like this. I guess if I stayed closer to home(Buffalo) it might be different.
