I am now going to tell you a short story that I should have told you TWO MONTHS ago. And, indeed, the only reason I post it here now is so that I will remember it in the future. And because I know that Erica, at least, will appreciate the humor.

About two months ago, I was preparing to leave for my month-long camping trip. I had all my stuff packed and was set to leave the next morning. As was the custom, a bunch of people were sitting in the hostel TV lounge, watching any old movie that came on the movie channel. I joined them. The movie that came on . . . Deliverance. I watched the whole thing, even though I had seen it before and knew that it was not the best movie to be watching just before embarking on a wilderness adventure. Just a coincidence, though. Right? I don't know . . . because the next morning, as I walked down the street to the place where I was supposed to meet the bus, I had to pass by a music store. The doors were open and the music inside was playing loud enough for anyone on the sidewalk to hear it clearly. The song that was playing as I walked by . . . "Dueling Banjos". I kid you not.

Then I went camping. And no one got assaulted or killed. At least, that's the tale I tell.

(So far, only one person to whom I have told this story has understood the point of it. I'm counting on Erica here, to double that.)

That's great. The gods of coincidence were staring down at you.

Did you bring your bow and arrow? Just in case? Did you lose your wallet?

that makes me think of a funny story of my own...it was valentine's day, and my boyfriend at the time wanted to rent a movie. his friend dan stayed and hung out with joy while adam and i went to get a movie. adam picked out the movie, he picked the deliverance. when we got back, dan was wearing one of joy's mom's dresses. joy left for somewhere else. so there we were, me, adam and dan in drag watching the deliverance on valentine's day. then there was a knock at the door. it was my ex. i went downstairs to warn adam and dan...they ran out of the back door to avoid seeing the ex, but adam left his car keys and dan left his clothing. what a cra-zeee evening.
