Now for something completely different....

If you are expecting any kind of insightful post, stop reading now. But if you enjoy a random story - keep reading.

When I was in grade 8, my crazy friend Laura thought it would be funny to smile and wave at a shy kid in a grade lower than us - just to make him embarassed. Upon later reflection - this may have been more mean than funny - but hey we were in grade 8. Anyway, we always waved at this boy called Shaun, and he would get all agitated and embarassed. So success for us basically.

So what's funny about that story? Besides the fact that I was a potentially mean kid in my younger days? Last summer, while working at the ol' Sbux, I notice that a regular customer looks veeery familiar. And for the life of me I can't figure out why. Then it dawns on me - It's Shaun! So one day - on a secret stealth mission, I walk past the insurance company where he works and read his nameplate. Yup - it sure is. Small weird world my friends. Anyway - I think we are friends now, he came in this week and we chatted it up. Mental.


Laura & I taking a cheesy photo with Shaun. Before all the jokes start....I was in grade 8, give me a break!

yeah when I was in grade 8 my friend Danielle & I would always try to embarass this guy Tyler in our science class. He would blush harshly whenever he talked to a girl so whenever we'd see him we'd say "Hiiii Tyler" in this silly voice...we'd do this in class, in the halls, in the caf. Poor guy.
