Things That Make You Go...

So, I noticed something interesting in the doc's office this morning.

When you are in grade school, you run across friends in the playground.
When you are in junior high, you run across buddies in the 7-11/Dairy Queen/Burger King (insert your place here) parking lot.
When you are in high school your run into acquaintances in the mall.
When you are in college, you across old pals and past lovers at frat parties.
When you are in your middle years, you run into people at cocktails parties.

When you are old and have retired to Florida, you run across old friends in the doctor's waiting room. This happened twice this morning, with two different couples. "Fancy meeting you here!" "Jerry, it's Ellen - look!" "After all this time!" "Hey, we have to quit meeting like this - what are you in for?"

And then they talked about how their Grandchildren had run into each other in the playground.

I don't run into people at cocktail parties. I see them in the grocery store...or quite often, grocery store parking lots.

I still see my friends at the 7-Eleven parking lot.

What you didn't hear ? It's cool again to hang out there. After all everything 80's is resurfacing and becoming cool again.

You know, I was going to add grocery store in there somewhere and I think I got distracted...

I don't run into people so much as I run them over.
But generally it happens at the grocery store, local bar/restaurants and the playground.
I like the swings, what can I say?
