Contact Information

We just got back from playing at the park. We had been walking around our neighborhood yard sale and decided to take a break at the playground.

While we were there, two women and a man came in with a two year and an infant. One of the women lived a few blocks away and her friends were in town visiting. We started chatting about the neighborhood, schools and kids.

They asked if Corey was going to the school were playing at and we explained our parenting situation and that he goes to school in his moms' neighborhood. They thought our situation was fascinating and envied the arrangements.

"You know, my friend knew two dads who lived nearby who did a kitchen renovation two years ago," the neighbor said.

"We did one five years ago," I replied. "I only know of one other set of dads in the area. Maybe they did the renovation."

After twenty minutes of chatting, she remembered the name and we connected the mutual. I worked with her years ago at Imagine before we both left. We laughed and as we left, decided to try and meet up again. I fished into my wallet and passed along a business card.

When we got home, Larry said he couldn't believe I gave her my card.

"What would you have done?"

"Well, I had my check book. I was just going to hand her a blank check and void it out."

Necessity certainly is the mother of invention.

I think the check thing is pretty hilarious... but I don't understand why Larry thought it odd that you passed along a card?

A voided check with your account number on it was safer?

Small world!
