i love coincidence. nicole and i had plans to go out with her oldest friend and her husband tonight. then i got a last minute phone call from a friend of mine that he was having a birthday party. i have missed a lot of parties he has had, so we went there instead and invited our friends to join us. out of the blue, nicole and her friend ran into a woman they had baby sat for years ago. coincidence number one. as we were leaving, i saw a guy who looked familiar. we did the point-at each-other-and-say-i-know-you thing, finally realizing that we had known each other in the late eighties when i had my gallery downtown. coincidence number two. coincidence number three is the kicker though. he is married to the woman nicole and her friend baby sat for.
