This is not going to be a funny post. It’s just a quick story I heard this weekend that I thought was kind of cute. Men probably should stop reading now.
So my two friends who happen to be in a relationship were over my house the other night having some drinks and they shared with me an adorable story that you may think is corny. But I’ll tell you anyways because who the hell do you think you are?! Well, these friends of mine dated years ago in high school, broke up, and then reconnected and have been dating for quite a bit now and have a magical relationship like Allie and Noah (okay, no couple is that cute, but my point is they are a good couple). Here’s the story: My male friend was looking at old pictures at his mom’s house and noticed a picture he took of his parents back when he was little. He recalled that the picture was taken at Faxon field at some event for kids that the city has where Santa jumps out of a helicopter. He also noticed a little girl standing behind his parents who looked strikingly similar to his girlfriend, but thought the chances of that were slim. So later when he was with his girlfriend he asked if she’d ever been to the event where Santa jumps out of a helicopter (figuring she would remember something like that). She had no idea what he was talking about, so he chalked it up to the little girl in the picture being a look-alike. A few days later, he brought his girlfriend over to his mom’s and decided to show her the freaky picture of the little girl. So his girlfriend looked at the picture and says, “Yup that’s me!”. And she could confirm this because she also knew the woman standing behind her in the picture. Here are the pictures, but I’ve replaced the faces of my friend’s parents with Alec Baldwin and Annie Camden (7th Heaven mom) for privacy reasons:
I don’t know. Maybe I’m just a sucker for shit having to do with love. But like, what are the odds that some random picture you took of your parents at a stupid Santa suicide jump would have your future love in the background? They hadn’t met, didn’t go to the same school or live close to each other. It just seems kind of crazy that of all the silly little girls running around waiting for Santa to swan dive into Faxon park, that it would be this silly little girl who was standing there at the exact second the picture was taken. Maybe it’s not that crazy. I don’t know. Just thought it was kind of cute. I read a similar story to this on the internet where a guy or girl had a picture taken of them at Disney World when they were like 5 years old, and standing in the background is their future spouse at 5 years old. Just seems like crazy odds to me. Obviously that story is more crazy because they were in Disney at the same time but still, things like this just make me believe in fate and other majestic shit…like unicorns and global warming and the Richard Gere/anal hamster myth. Ahh, love is just so cute. Until it ends in divorce.
Thanks J & S for letting me tell your corny story =) Love you guys.
