What's your strangest coincidence, ever? Such as running into someone on the street in a far

away city, years apart, etc?

Last summer I was standing on a street corner in Paris, looking for a taxi. One way street, looking to my left. I looked over my shoulder to the right to see how far away the metro was, weighing my options. I look left again, and look right again as someone caught my eye. I look harder, and harder.... I see a big beautiful black woman with the best smile ever, and I look again, she looks like my friend Toya whom I had worked with for 12 years in Los Angeles.

I yell, "Toya? Is that you?" And of course it was! She says to me, 'D___ and I googled you last week trying to find you! I figured if it was meant to be, I'd find you!" And so she did. Standing on the same street corner thousands of miles away in a giant, enormous, anonymous city....

I hadn't see her of course in nearly 10 years, nor spoken, talked or texted with her. I'd spoken of her with a mutual friend, that was about it. She was always a person whom I remembered fondly all those 20+ years.

We went for coffee and dinner and got caught up, and I got to show her some bits of my Paris. We commiserated, shared stories and had a lovely, lovely evening. It was good to see an old friend.

What's your weird, wild and wonderful coincidence?
