I’m jumping up and down – GIDDY with excitement!!! Yes, I have an other little small-world gem to share.
So as you may or may not know and/or care, I’ve been in the world o’blog since June or July of this year. Via the blog of one of my dearest friends, karenlessscripted, I’ve become acquainted with a most awesome blogger, Runningonsober.
I’m convinced that we’d have been friends in high school, she wore/wears Doc Martins, prom dresses from Hot Topic and likes the Butthole Surfers. Those three items would pretty much seal-the-deal.
One thing that she always comments about on my blog (another reason I just LOVE her – she comments!) are my small world stories. I seem to have a ton of them. When I’m not actively collecting crazies off the street; I’m finding out the most amazing connections between people.
Soooooo – one day Runningonsober was nominated for a (well deserved) blog award. And one of the things she did was reveal some interesting tidbits about her self as per the ‘instructions’ of being a recipient of the award.
I hope by now you can see where this story is going….
Her first tidbit went like this – and I quote:
In my past life (i.e. a few years ago), I was a semi-pro poker player.
HOLY CRAP- THERE IT IS!!!!! I couldn’t type in my question FAST ENOUGH!
Q: Let’s see if we can find the SMALL WORLD CONNECTION….
OK – Do you know a Huck Seed from your Poker days?
Of course she did!
A: Huck Seed? Huckleberry? Yes ma’am. Tall as the sky and on the quiet side. I didn’t know him well, but he was always very friendly to me. And freaky smart.
Ok – I don’t know Huck Seed, per se, but his cousin is one of my very dear & wonderful friends. She was a Seed too…just not a Huckleberry, Cotton or Caraway Seed… I consider THAT a close enough connection.
DID YOU HEAR THAT KEVIN BACON??? I don’t need no six stinkin’ degrees…two to three work just fine.
