Small World

This is a small world story that is really small.

This morning, I had a message at work from a guy with something like a 714 or 740 area code which I did not recognize, but he was interested in one of our classes. I thought, well this will be an adventure, so I gave him a ring. It was 8:15 am and a voice sounding like it had just woken up answered. I went in to my usual fact finding mission and found out he lived in Ohio. Seeing as I am such an expert on all things Ohio, I asked him where he lived. I couldn't believe it when he said "Celeryville." I said "Get out of here - I'm from Celeryville." He couldn't believe that since Celeryville only has about 250 people who live there. I found out that he is the teacher of my nephew Hunter and nieces Paige & Allie. And he knows my sisters and mom & dad, of course, and about 250 other people I know. And by the time we hung up, it seemed like we were old friends because I totally knew his zip code by heart.
