Chance Meetings
by Georgette Sullins

Two friends deliberately introduced us. We shared two common languages and he attended my father’s alma mater. A year later, at a bus stop he drove by and asked me where I was going. I told him I needed to get to the metro exchange. He drove me there as we exchanged pleasantries. Another year later our eyes met at the metro exchange. In a city of 20,000,000 people, what are the odds? He waved. He smiled warmly. Again we exchanged pleasantries. That was the last time I saw him. I don’t even remember his name.

    This feels like truth. People think they can pick our perfect mate. We are usually not interested. I bet these fictional friends remember.

    And Susan, I swear I’m finishing that Meme before summer! 😉

    Thank you so much for posting this piece on your site today. I appreciate the opportunity to share with your readers. So glad I bumped into your post on FP. “When Green Was a Color” still makes me smile. It was filled with the goodness of remembering how things were and can be.
