It's a small world after all . . . .

And I'm not joking about this one!

Ready for a funny story?

So, I believe that I've shared with many of you that I have "bitten the bullet" and have signed up with to get myself into a more social atmosphere. Of course, I'm still not sure if this is a good idea because I'm incredibly skeptical of the people that are on there or even out there (thanks to the last date that I had). Yet, I'm wanting to get into the "scene" and get my "feelers" out there (as my sister has suggested) so there I find myself.

So, I've had one face to face meeting with an eHarmony-er and I won't be going out with that one again (if I have anything to say about it). Now, I've been emailing with a couple of others and thinking that we may be close to a face to face meeting as well. One of these individuals and I started sharing information over email. Of course, on email, he seems great. He's apparently intelligent, witty, humorous, adventurous, and hopefully many other things. So, things were going well and then I asked if he has lived in Fresno (the Valley) all his life. Well, as it turns out, he grew up in the small, itty-bitty town that I work in! WHAT?

Yes, I work in a very small town. The population is 20,000 people, but 12,000 of those people are prison inmates! So, with a small town, you get small town people and small town talk (Just a little background). Anyway, I thought this was incredibly funny. At this point, I don't think this gentleman shares my humor. I think he may be feeling a little bit insecure. But let's be honest, I'm not going to go around asking about it. I just think it's hysterical.

Of course, I don't know that we will ever meet face to face (especially now). I don't know that this will go anywhere. I just find it amusing that in such a big world we can have something so common between two people. It may be too much for him to bear, but I think it's absolutely hysterical!

So, now, of course, I wonder what it is he doesn't want me to know? Hmmmmm. Did someone say challenge?

Here's to Mr. Corcoran!!
