It’s a Small World After All

In case you haven’t been reading my road trip blog or if you are new here I arrived in San Francisco yesterday for the annual BlogHer conference.

I am having a wonderful time and all that but I really want to tell you a quick story.

One of the many blogs that I write for is DC Metro Moms Blog. Last night I went to a party for all of the SV Moms Group blogs.

As soon as I walked in I saw a woman that looked a lot like somebody I knew in college. I thought “Hey, that lady looks like Alexis”. Then somebody called her Alexis.

I went up and re-introduced myself. I hadn’t seen Alexis in 13 years. We were in a sorority together in college.

I am in San Francisco. I live outside of Washington DC. I went to college in Orlando. She lives in L.A. What are the odds that we would ever run across each other again?

It really is a small world.

* Yes, I know we are doing it backwards. It has been a long time since college and I am way to lazy to try to find a program that will reverse the picture.

  1. WTF are you doing in that picture? Is that some sort of secret sorority girl pose?

  2. What an uncanny coincidence! So glad someone called her name so you could dive in with confidence!

    Can hardly wait to hear more stories…
    You represent for the twin mamas, Sister!

  3. That “lady” looks a lot like Alexis, huh? Oh shit, I’m a lady now. Bad sign Sarah, very bad sign.

    Although I’d say we both look damn good considering it’s been 15 YEARS since we started college!

    Anyway, it was great spending some time with you and I’m really glad we are reconnecting.

    I have to admit though that I feel like a totally blogging dumbass around you.

  4. We couldn’t do that pose in Athens. The beer would have spilled.

  5. Sarah, so glad we got to hang out for a bit at BlogHer. Have a great rest of your trip and then get back to being a loser. Me too!

  6. DAMMIT. Now I can’t get that song out of my head……..

  7. that’s awesome, by the way for the first time, i really see that you and ian do look alike! wow! similar eyes and smile!
    have fun –

  8. That is crazy – in a very awesome, fun way! How cool.

  9. The best thing about the picture: the caption right underneath it reads “Find things like this on Amazon.”

    I am actually thinking about clicking on the caption, just to see what comes up.

  10. How cool is that? Nothing like that ever happens to me. The closest I ever got was when I ran into the TA I had a huge crush on…just a few days after having given birth, in the super-maxi pad aisle at the grocery store, when I had on no make-up and still looked like there was a baby in my belly.

  1. […] I have met randomly through blogging/commenting that went to my high school. If you add that to running into my sorority sister at BlogHer last month it really seems like the world is […]
