Ask And You Shall Receive

by Joy Monger

The other day a friend and I were sitting downtown people watching and I asked her “Don’t you think it’s weird that we both grew up here and we never run into people we know?”

And then the Universe laughed.

In the days since, I’ve run into an old boyfriend, an old crush,  and an old co-worker. Plus, at least three random people at the gym.

How does it know to do that???

I wish I had instead said “Don’t you think it’s weird that we never run into big giant piles of money and Brad Pitt?”
