I was taking out the garbage this week and some guy walking down Woodbine Ave. says to me , "Hey, did you work in Kuwait?"
I'm thinking, who did I have a conversation about Kuwait with lately. I said "who are you?" and he says "sorry I must be mistaken" and starts to walk away...
Hold on there! Not so fast...after some brief explaination, he introduced himself as Fadi Al-Rayes. I taught him grade 9 science in Kuwait.
Turns out he's graduated from Georgetown, lives in Kuwait and is in Toronto staying with relatives for a few weeks to write his GMAT.
Just happened to be wandering down my street, at dusk, and recognized me.
Waaaayyy to bizarre.
