More than one time you've probably heard someone say that they met someone and instantly felt as though they'd known them all their lives. That's exactly how I felt when I met our myLotter @LoriAMoore this afternoon for lunch. She pulled in and instantly recognized my car. She obviously recognized me, too, because I told her I don't look anything like my dog pictured in my avatar. We had lunch at City BBQ, which is a chain of quick-serve, sit-down restaurants with good southern cooking. Almost instantly I saw how much we have in common: she's married, I'm single; I love country music, she hates it; she had pork, I'm allergic to it so I had chicken. Separated at birth, huh? Seriously, the commonalities surfaced almost as if drawn by an invisible magnet. We talked about myLot (including about @JolietJake but only said good things for fear of Scar slashing our tires), being a Kentuckian (it may surprise you that we both wore shoes, had teeth, and ate with utensils!!), and the seriousness of our common ailment (depression). The food was good. The conversation was fun. The hour went way, way too quickly. And the company was spectacular.

I told you, I don't drink coughee. Why do you think they threw me out of the Navy?? We did discuss the importance of coffee in the Navy, however, and how most sailors' blood is type C (caffeinated).

@FourWalls Guess you will have to do this more often! If you ever get to Michigan let me know. We could set up an opportunity for 2 more Mylotters to meet you!

Really interesting to read about your meeting with each other. What is that you are wearing in your neck. The pendant is awesome....Is there any story for that? Did you discuss it with LonAmoor?

That's a fleur-de-lis that Lori is wearing. It's the symbol of the city. We think of ourselves as French chic here because the city was named for King Louis XVI.
