You know that cliche` thing that we always said about our little red dot, that its a small world.
There was these 2 strangers who board the same bus to work every morning and has been doing so for quite some time. One day, one of them (let’s call her lady A) decided to strike up a conversation with the other lady (lady B). So the conversation goes something like this…
Lady A: You stay around here?
Lady B: Yes you too?
Lady A: No further up the road.
Lady A: Do you know where is Blk XXX? Is is near some school?
Lady B: Yes. It’s just somewhere down the road from here.
Lady A: I got a friend staying there
Lady B: Me too. I got a friend staying there as well.
Lady A: My friend just moved from Simei to here.
Lady B: My friend too. He also just moved from Simei to here.
Lady A & Lady B: ????? together: What is your friend’s name?
Needless to say, the friend is of course, Uncle me here. Is it a small world or what? When 2 strangers striking up a conversation on a bus can ends up with a mutual friend. Now if these 2 ladies were a man and a lady, this would have been a perfect setting for a romantic story but alas they are not unless they are……….
