This country is too small!!!

December 8, 2006 at 11:24 am 11 comments

I was talking to the man last night and he asked me if I knew an acquaintance of his, we’ll call this guy Z*. Nope, never heard of the guy before.

Then he asked if I knew Z’s wife. Nope, never heard of her before either.

Apparently Z was asking him if he was going to be going to the church up the hill** for Christmas.

So obviously the acquaintance of his knew of me and knew of what my dad does. And before you ask, I don’t think of myself as a well known person – I don’t appear on page 2 of the observer, I don’t do PR for a big company and my family doesn’t have a famous name!

I’ve never met Z. I don’t know what group he hangs around with. I don’t know his wife. The man doesn’t know them well. But someone had mentioned to Z about me and the man having a thing.

This country is too damn small.

On a completely different matter, I have decided that it is time to start feeling Christmassy. I have put the ‘Christmas in the Sun’ album on my work computer (excellent album! All Jamaican and happy.) I am going to a lime at a friend’s house this evening with the main point being that we are going to have drinks and look at her Christmas tree. And I am planning to take a day off next week to do my Christmas shopping. All I need now is a good Christmas backgroup for my computer – any suggestions?? 

* Just using Z as it is a letter I don’t use often enough in this blog.

** My dad is the minister of a little church up a hill

    Oh yes the country is small. I’ve discovered that it’s not good to say negative things about anyone since they might be related.

    Small fi true. Just yesterday I was talking to a lady at church and somewhere in there I found out that her father was someone I knew before he died some 14 years ago. I just never put two and two together with her last name. Besides I thought she was married.

    I couldn’t imagine living somewhere like Cayman – way too small! I have to admit that there are times when I like the island being small – but other times I just wish people would mind their own business!
