When my grandfather came back from WW2, his wife was gone and he never found her and no one knew what happened to her. As far as we knew, he just had my dad and his brother. A few years ago we got a message on Ancestry.com from someone asking if the Charles listed as my grandfather was from Germany, because someone matching his description was her long lost father who didn’t know about her existence because his wife had ran away to California while he was fighting in the war. Turns out I have an aunt.
I was on a college trip to the MOMA in 2009 when for some reason one of the intersections was really busy and i was in a huge rush to make it to the museum. Some guys bumped right into me and I told him to watch where he was going. It was Jay-Z. He told me to enjoy my day in the city, and I didn’t even realize it was him until about 5 seconds later, but he was already gone. I also rode the Green Lantern coaster at Six Flags with Danny Bonaduce and he kept giving everyone high fives and fist bumps even though most of the 10 year olds had no idea who he was.
