This means that everyone knows everyone and there is no exception to that.
I need to remember that even if I don't personally know the person driving (way too fast) on the dirt road near our house there is a good chance that my husband does.
If I don't know them and J doesn't know them, then there is a good chance that my mother-in-law taught them in school. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if she was their favorite teacher. That seems to be a statement I hear often.
If my mother-in-law doesn't know them, there is a good chance my father-in-law has done business with them in the past. He's probably made a few good teeth for them (he used to own a dental lab) or maybe he's sold them a lamb or two in the past.
If that fails, there is a good chance our families are connected through my sister-in-law's marriage.
Bottom line is...the stranger on the road that I (loudly and rudely) screamed at for speeding yesterday is not a stranger, but now I'm pretty sure is an enemy.
I clearly need to work on my friend-making skills. Clearly.
Happy day, my friends!
