Now that I have given you a horrible ear worm ... LOL

We all have these stories. The ones that make you say 'WHOA! What a small world!'

What is yours?


Back when I was about 18, I was working at a bingo. I was the canteen girl. Around the same time, I found out I was pregnant. I was panicked. I thought my parents would hate me (old school thinking where my parents were concerned.)

I told my mom. That went off well, without a hitch. Then I was worried about my dad. He was a French Catholic and those are pretty strict. My mom informed me that my dad could not get mad because he had been in the same boat at one point in time. Young, got a girl pregnant out of wedlock. I asked her what happened to the child, I assumed he was given up for adoption.

It turned out that my dad was told to marry her or have nothing to do with the child. He wasn't marrying her so... They were estranged. My mom kept contact with the child over the years, sending him pictures of us growing up. Just so he could see what his sisters looked like.

I found out, about 2 days after finding all this out that a guy I had served a million times at the bingo canteen that worked for one of the charities was in fact my brother I had never met.

WHOA! what a small world!

Well, when I met my husband I had just broken up with another guy. It was right before a Halloween Party that the ex was having at his best friend's condo. I met Mike completely unrelated to the ex or the ex's best friend..but it turned out that he was close friend's with the ex's best friend's roommate and was also planning on going to that Halloween Party. Neither one of us ended up going..me since me and the ex broke up and him because some other plans came up. He had been to the friend's condo many times and so had I over the 6 months I had dated my ex...heck we were there at least three times a week and somehow Mike and I never ran into each other.

We also found out that his dad had bought the mobile home next to the one that my parents had when I was a baby. If they hadn't bought a house and moved a few towns over when I was three Mike and I would have grown up as neighbors.

Oh also on our Honeymoon we took a cruise to Bermuda. On the cruise we were talking to another couple at the bar. We started talking about where we were from and where we went to school and it turned out I went to the same high school as the woman in the couple and she graduated just two years before me.

Madness! I love how stuff like this plays out.

Your paths were destined to cross, just not until a certain time.

It's funny too..without giving out my last name basically when I was in high school I liked a lot of boys that had the name Mike and had last names that contained the first two letters of his last name. At one point after I had been dating one of them and he broke up with me she said "oh don't worry you'll end up with Mike ______ in time" and I said "no mom that's the other one this was Mike ______" and she goes "oh I can't keep up you'll end up with Mike _ ok??" and she just said the first initial of the last name.....well turns out I did! Just not either of the ones she was talking about LOL

It was pretty crazy. And when I actually met him as my brother, he found out he was going to be an uncle.
