Tony and I went to an event tonight that drew a couple of hundred people from all over the metropolitan area. The room was quite full when we got there, but we saw a friend sitting at a table across the room and took seats next to her. Once we got situated I introduced myself to the other people sitting at the table. The woman across from me said I looked familiar and we started trying to figure out a connection:
- Had we crossed paths through the organization that was sponsoring tonight's event? No.
- Did she have children the same ages as mine? No.
- Did she live in my community? No, but she had lived in a neighboring city 15 years ago. Aha!
- When she lived there, did she go to my church? No, but she had friends who lived close to it.
