I got quite a surprise tonight, when my workmate George sent me a text message saying he’d met my cousin Iain on a snow boarding holiday.
There’s nothing particularly unusual about Iain meeting people he knows, lived near, played football with, went to the same school as, worked in the same pub as, has a friend of a friend of, or any other tenuous link you’d care to mention, but meeting people I know is a first!
Not that I thought they were scamming me, but I asked for photographic evidence all the same, knowing that George is usually equipped with a decent camera phone. Sure enough, a couple of minutes later I had the proof that it is indeed a very small world. 🙂
