It always amazes me when I run into people I know when I'm on vacation. In 2006, we sailed on Disney Magic. We're standing in a taxi line in Costa Maya, Mexico. Kilowatt says - "don't you know that woman ahead of us?" In our family, I'm in charge of recognizing people and remembering names. I try to casually look at the woman in question (in case I don't know her) and indeed, she is a former co-worker. I've never run into her in the state of NH, which is a small state, but go to Mexico and there she is!
This year, here we are at the sailaway party on Grand Princess. Diva and I are doing the Electric Slide so we can win great prizes, like a pair of pink flip-flops and a jump rope, when I look up to where Kilowatt is diligently filming our antics for our future amusement. Standing next to him is my former boss, another NH resident I never run into in NH.
Another time we were at Disney World on a boat heading to the Contemporary Resort. I kept staring (casually, of course) at this man because I was positive I knew him from somewhere. You guessed it -- another former co-worker.
So now I have a new travel game - who will I run into this trip?
