I had lunch today with 3 of my quilting buddies. Candy, Doris & Janet (who is 1 day younger than me). We were celebrating Janet’s latest quilting award. Anyway, you know how you sit there and talk about all kinds of things, our conversation turned to our younger days. You know those crazy things you did as teenagers! Anyway, here’s part of the conversation..
Doris: So Janet have you always lived in Kansas?
Janet: No I lived in Missouri for awhile. I was born in KC MO
Me: So was I. Which hospital?
Janet: Trinity Lutheran Hospital
Me: So was I!
Janet: We lived on Campbell around 41st
Me: OH MY GOSH! We lived around 42nd and Campbell!
after that I can’t remember who said what but we had to have been in the same hospital nursery at the same time, because they always kept you in the hospital several days. I think Mom said she was in there 5 days when she had me. I was born around 4:30 in the afternoon and Janet was born the next day shortly before noon!
What are the odds of 2 babies being born at the same hospital within a day of each other, sharing the same nursery, living on the same street (we moved when I was 15 mo old), growing up and both becoming quilters and then meeting each other and becoming friends???????? Wow! That’s WILD!!
What are the odds of that?????
