Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.
I hope today finds you happy and well adjusted, able to put things in perspective and understand that some things are sent to try us, some things are designed to change us but all things happen for the best of that you can be sure, especially on a planet where the most random of things happen….
Last week I was shopping in my local supermarket, being very healthy, okay, okay, I was stood in front of the cake display, when a figure came and stood right next to me and gave me such a fright that I jumped back whilst exclaiming a profanity of epic proportions.
When I had regained my composure, I realised who it was and how random it was that this person should be stood in front of me in MY local supermarket.
Anyway, we chatted for a while and made an arrangement to meet this week (well, in fact we met on Tuesday just gone) to continue our conversation as we were probably boring the daughter of this person to tears with our inane banter. Yes, that’s right, banter. It is literally how we talk. We quote old films and TV shows to each other and make silly references to growing up in the 70’s that only people of our era and location get.
So who did I arrange to have Quwofee (Coffee) with?
This mad bird is who…..
That’s young Fiona aka Osyth from Half Baked in Paradise.
That means in this photo we have two bloggers from completely different parts of the world meeting in a Costa Coffee shop in a tiny town in the Shires of England.
Pretty amazeballs eh?
Remarkable when you consider that Fiona splits her time between Massachusetts and Southern France, but here she in in dear old Ardington (a village near Wantage) visiting her mother. Yes, that’s right, her mother!!
It is such a small world when you consider the distances involved. We all know that the world is smaller now than it has ever been, what with warp factor travel and the Interweb but when you actually meet face to face with someone you only correspond with via cyberspace, whilst doing your daily shop, well that is a bit of a heart stopper for sure!
We met and talked and talked and talked. We talked about everything and anything including how brilliant I am. (It must be true if Fiona says it 😉 ) What the future was holding for her and B2 (the Brain and the Bean), myself and Archie and my upcoming walk.
Suffice to say there wasn’t much oxygen left in the coffee shop what with all of the talking going on 😉
So there you go guys, always keep your eyes open as you never know who you might bump into…..
Stay out of the fridge.
