last summer, tic long and i stepped off a little boat in a river in botswana, africa, onto a dock at a restaurant where we were to have lunch. walking through the open-air restaurant, we passed a table where thom and joanie shultz were sitting, having lunch (thom and joanie are the owners of group publishing).
then, today after landing at washington, dc’s, dulles international airport, we were walking toward baggage claim and thom walked past me. i called his name, and we had a short chat. turns out he and joanie were on their way back from london.
weird. if i see him a third time somewhere, in the next 6 or 8 months, i might have to seriously freak out.
