Small World

This morning as I duplicated Mr. Shaw's Stars Study Guide to the American Revolution, the little red-headed girl from down the street and her mom passed the copy room and said Hi! Then she asked if I had heard that Granddaddy was sick and in the hospital. No I hadn't. What's his ailment? And the mom uttered that terrible word, "Leukemia." So I started to tell them about how leukemia has staggered our family and as I raised my sleeve to show off my swirly purple armband, they beat me to it. They had the same armbands. I was floored. I, Lily's uncle, was not the first person at Armuchee Elementary School with a Lily's Garden armband!

Small world.
