When Life Imitates Art

This happened to me last week. I froze much like Samantha ‘Sam’ Baker did in this funny scene in the filmΒ Sixteen Candles. 😳 The irony is when this guy (aka Mr. Neighbor Up North) and I first ‘met,’ he smiled at me, which caught me by surprise because it was at an event where it was semi-dark. Then about a month later, I was shopping for groceries and saw him in the same aisle, so I approached him and introduced myself. 😁 We talked for a few minutes and then went our separate ways.

The day this scene occurred, it caught me by surprise again. I can’t explain it, but I do know this: The next time he and I cross paths again (intending it’s soon), I certainly won’t be at a loss for words again. 😊
