  • Mood:

Freak out

OK...*deep breath*

I just got off the phone with my friend Doug. He's the one friend in this area that I wanted to hook up with; I haven't seen or talked to him in over 5 years. We go way back. He dated my sister at one point; he was my boss/co-worker at another. There's just a *lot* of history.

So, 5 minutes into the conversation, he says to me, "I'm going to tell you something, but don't freak out."

He proceeds to tell me that, just last week, he got a phone call out of the blue from my ex-husband, Rob. Out of the blue. Just calling after having not spoken to Doug in 3 years to tell him he'd moved.

Guess where he lives now?

San Francisco.

20 frickin' minutes from my house. And he called just a week before I did. Doug said it freaked him out a little when he got my message today. He said the timing on it was just weird.

Rob has no idea I live out there, and he's remarried now, but...holy shit. I'm sorry, it just took me so by surprise. Odds are, we'll never run into each other---thank god for it being such a populated area---but damn, what are the odds?
