I know what you mean. Lauren came out of nowhere. Well, that’s not entirely true. girl-detective had been telling us about each other for a while. Lauren didn’t come out of nowhere, nor did I to her.
It’s just that when we finally met, it was with this delightfully utter calm that we picked up speed, barreling into each other’s lives. Only when I cast myself into the mindset of the Jeremy before I met her does it seem so surprising.
Now, my reaction is more like “Well, of course. This is your person, after all.”
I want to say that it is funny how things happen like that. How weird things happen and you’re single one moment and engaged the next. But it isn’t silly, and at no point does it feel crazy.
Sometimes you meet someone and you say “yes”.
Other times you meet someone and realize you’ve been weaving yesses to that person through the fabric of yourself long before you met them and learn in short order that they are dressed just the same.
