Out of state on a vacation in North Carolina, a friend and I were attending a convention. We met fellow fans while waiting in line to have our photos taken at a panel, nerding out and sharing stories of our favorite comics with each other. After having the absolute best time waiting for hours in this line, we started discussing where each of us were from. To our surprise, these people were from Milwaukee! Even better, we found out they lived in the same apartment complex that we did!

We agreed it was a small world and continued to mosey around the convention together. We ended up all grabbing a drink afterward and sure enough, we still hang out to this day! Even after moving out of that old apartment complex and moving to different parts of town, we still make time to see each other when we can. Who knew we’d meet such close friends all the way in North Carolina at a comic con of all places. The world truly does feel small at times.
