Home

A string of slight coincidences today, as I went out to run errands and hang out in the city for the last time. First, I think I saw a member of the gay rugby team that I'd moved Cyn and Phil with. He was kind of crossing the street, so I didn't stop to say hi. Then, later on, I left my house, and a few houses down the street, I saw a group of guys standing and chatting. And one of them was a former Antioch guy, in town for the day helping a friend of his move. On my street. I've had weird Antioch coincidences before but thiis guy, in town for a day, on my street?

Later in the night, I saw an old co-worker. That one was not a terrible surprise, as I was near where I used to work, at roughly the time when she would leave. She didn't recognize me. I had my hood up, I guess. I didn't say anything to her. I couldn't think of something to say. I feel kind of weird about talking to co-workers. I'm really bad at networking.

So suddenly, Philadelphia is throwing people I know at me. Thanks, Philly. Way to make me feel settled in.

Back to packing.
