“Last year I was out for drinks with an acquaintance who told me about her new boyfriend — who had the same name as my new boyfriend. She then told me he was currently on holiday in Georgia (the country, not US state). Mine was too.”
“I then asked her when he would be flying back and it was the same flight. We had to show each other pictures of our boyfriends to make sure there were two of them and we weren’t being double timed!”
“The day my paternal grandfather died my mom had been sitting in bed next to him comforting and talking to him. One of the things she said to him was ‘Tell my stepdad (Richie, who’d died years earlier) I say hi.’ A couple days later, after my grandfather had passed, we were at Walgreens looking outside the window when a huge truck drove by with ‘Richie says hi’ written on the side.”
“I’ll never forget that crazy moment.”
