02:49 pm - thus, the symmetry of the universe
I just walked to the store and back.
On the way there, it was pouring. On the way back, it was dry enough I left off my hood.
At the same place on each leg of the journey (one uphill, one down), I was asked for directions.
One was a youngish man in driving an old but tidy sedan. One was a younger woman with a child, smoking a cigarette and driving a car that had clearly seen better days.
One merely needed confirmation, the other was clearly confused. One headed east, one south.
One I could aid, one I could not.

Now, tell me again why not to believe in fairy tales.

Because it didn't happen three times.

Obviously, Joy needs to go to the store again.

Coincidences are fun. I had two consecutive Temple trips with the same friend containing a bunch of them: missed the ferry by 2 cars, had similar names we did "work" for, and then on the way back we saw the same unusual truck: Pickering Laminites. I remember the name of the truck because my friend joked it was "Bickering Lamanites." I'm never seen a Pickering Laminites truck before or since.
