One of the cool things about starting a new job is you get to meet lots of new people.
One of the bad things, if you're me, is that I am horrible with names and have, thus, forgotten about half of the people I've met so far.
But just today I've been kind of blown away by the whole small world thing.
Walking into a meeting, I was introduced to someone. He looked at me, heard my name and saw I have on a sedate orange dress shirt and said, "Are you the guy who has a UT blog that is named Big Orange?"
Blogging....it makes the universe smaller, I tell you. Kind of ironic considering what I posted about the lonely factor a few days ago.
Then, in another meeting, I was introduced to a woman who looked at me and said, "I knew you from church back in Knoxville" I looked at her again and it took a few seconds for it to register who she was when I knew her--she's since married and changed her last name, which kind of threw me at first. So, it was nice to see someone and catch up a bit on the good ol' days at Bearden UMC.
And I keep thinking to myself--small world and you just never know who you're gonna run into...
