It's A Small, Small World

I had one of those "cue the It's A Small World theme song" moments last week..... Talking to a guy on the phone who asks my hometown. Then he says his ex-wife is from there. Well, when you hail from a town with 596 people (and I'm pretty sure they had to count dogs to get the number that high) the chances are pretty good you will know who he was married too. He tells me who she is..... This woman has been married to not one, but TWO of my cousins.

I'm not sure if It's a Small World or Dueling Banjos is more appropriate here.....

But was this guy your cousin, too? Hmmm...

OH. MY. GOD.

My in-laws are from a small OK town where the news is very much the same. Most recently, my mother-in-law's nephew was arrested for killing his own cattle.

Oh, and then there's the attorney cousin who has been charged with sexually harassing clients.

And . . . you get the idea.

cheryl- nah, once she'd made it through all the local bachelors she moved to a bigger town and started over. This guy is husband #4 that I know of....

susan- I believe the term you are looking for is, "You can't fart without everybody knowing what you had for dinner."

leesa- I've been trying to figure out exactly where you live.... got it now. Gorgeous area.
