Six Degrees of Separation
This weekend I had the fun chance to go up to Branson, MO to visit my friend Cindy, her husband Tom, his son Kyle, and daughter-in-law Tara. Cindy and Tom currently live outside Phoenix, Kyle and Tara in Dallas. Tara, Cindy and I sat down for some good old fashioned girl talk while the men were off grilling (insert "Home Improvement"/Tim Allen "ho-ho-ho" here). Within minutes we made a crazy 6 degrees of separation connection. I don't remember how we got on the subject though! But it went something like this-
As you may have noticed I am friends with the band Due West.
One of the boys in the band is my friend Matt.
Matt's girlfriend is Cardin.
Cardin's sister is Katie.
Katie and Tara are childhood friends!
But it keeps going!
Katie is married to Nathan.
Nathan's sister is Liz, one of my oldest friends!
Liz, Nathan, and I grew up in the the Oakton/Herndon area of the DC suburbs.
In her college years Tara lived briefly in Herndon. But she never knew Nathan or Liz then.
