Today, I went to the Acme at lunch, in search of sushi (or that replica of it that the acme sells) and cash back.
So , in the express line, which was tres slow, there was an elderly woman in fromt of me with only 2 items. She was looking for a faster line, and I said, i guess you could try the self serve line, but it usually doesn't work, at least not for me.
She smiled, and said, "Do i know you from somewhere"? I said, well, I don't think so, maybe just from shopping in the area. I sensed that her memories might be a bit confused.
Then, she, who was wearing a purple jacket and pants (stylish "so called work out wear, juicy couture for the septegenarian) said did you used to attend Grace Lutheran Church. No, i am afraid not, I said.
She countered with, well, perhaps your mother did... No , I said.
Well, she said, you certainly have a twin out there.
I smiled, and said, I guess I do! (the jacket had embroidered on it, London, England, she must have got it while on holiday there).
What does this mean, this chance encounter? Probably just that, but I thought later, that perhaps my maternal grandmother was speaking through her. My Mom and Dad went to visit her grave yesterday. She (Nan) was quite psychic, and if anyone could "wave " at me like that, it would be Nan !Really miss her, and the fact that I will not be able to see her happiness at greeting her great grandchild. She would be
thrilled and excited, to say the least!!!
