aka the ripple effect.<br><br><br><br>
ever think about how small every day things could change someone's life?<br><br><br><br>
just something that comes up in my thoughts now and then that i find interesting. this time it came up because of something funny last weekend.<br><br><br><br>
we had a birthday bbq for my boyfriend, friends from out of town came and stayed the night. they're great, so much fun. the two women especially, they're best friends and both really energetic, outgoing etc. they make friends everywhere they go because they won't hesitate to walk up to a stranger and crack a joke or offer them food (they're notorious for feeding everyone whether they know them or not).<br><br><br><br>
anyway we went out for breakfast the next morning and were waiting at the door for a table in this little restaurant. both women work in a restaurant so they're greeting other customers coming in and saying "have a nice day!" to customers as they leave. the waiter thought we were all nuts i think.<br><br>
this older lady comes up behind us looking for a table, one of our friends jumps in "oh there's a table for one right there, go ahead" and meanwhile another lady about the same age walks up alone "oh, you're by yourself too? well here, sit together!" so they did. heh. total strangers. i'm thinking gee that would be awkward.<br><br><br><br>
but after we got our table, ate, and were leaving, they were still sitting there and having what looked like a really indepth conversation and leaning across the table towards each other.<br><br><br><br>
how funny!<br><br><br><br>
so yeah, long rambling post i know, but long story short, i wonder if our friend's outgoingness might have resulted in a close friendship between these two strangers. heck what if one is depressed and has nobody to turn to and this sudden new friend to talk to helps her out of something bad?<br><br><br><br>
just interesting to think of possibilities like that.<br><br><br><br>
i know, i'm wierd. anyone have any other stories like that to share?

You're not crazy, lf. (Or at least not any more than I am. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> ) I think that a lot of things, small and large, have a ripple effect. That's why I'm careful not to respond in a smart alecky or irritated way when I'm asked the same question, for the thousandth time, about my veg*nism. What I do or say may have an effect on whether someone might, perhaps many years in the future, become veg*n.

yeah. like i had this "best friend" for years who ended up really hurting me in the end, but i wonder if the only reason i was really friends with her was so i could meet my boyfriend, she's the one who introduced us like 7 years ago. craziness.

i love how LF won't post for weeks at a time and then she'll come back and write a 3000 word essay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> or maybe i just don't see her other posts..<br><br><br><br>
but regardless, nope, i have no story.
