Sometimes It's a Very Small Town

I have been reminded the last couple of days of how small this town sometimes is. Last night I had a couple of friends over to my place. We'll call them M and J. M not only knows my landlord, but also the business owner of the neighboring business. J knows my next door neighbor who happens to work with the husband of J and M's coworker (J and M work together). Did you catch all that?

Now, if it had truly been a small town, we would have figured out that somebody was married to somebody else's cousin or something.

it's a small town, it's a small state. I'm always bumping into people these days.

Oh! I do know M and J personally and they are lovely people! ha ha ha... Truly, for Salem being as large as it is - I've always said we are quite the incestuous town. I rarely go "out and about" where I don't run into at least one person that I know. And I always find people that "know someone that knows someone that I know". Too funny!

It's actually just a pretty small world. I once ran into a guy I grew up with in Keizer when I was shopping in Austin, TX. We just both happened to be in the same store in the same city at the same time. Weird.
