A few weeks ago, Julia mentioned that she’s had a huge number of coincidences all her life. Here’s the first that stands out.
“The first one I really remember was one night at around 2.00am. I was 19 and a courier in Madrid airport responsible for flying Spanish shoppers to London on a chartered flight. This particular group of 50 Spaniards, were hungry, sleepy and irate because their flight had been delayed.
I was frantically rushing up and down the concourse trying to find someone in authority to give my passengers something to eat [not an easy task at that time in the morning!]. Suddenly, there was a tap on my shoulder.
“What are you doing here, Julia?”
“Looking for a key to the kitchen!”
“Hope you get it open soon – otherwise, it looks like you might be this group’s breakfast.”
Adam, a friend I’d not seen for 3 or 4 years, strolled off towards his gate. As a student, he was saving money by taking the long route to Egypt from London via Madrid – in the middle of the night!
Fortunately for me, the plane got fixed, and my passengers were soon shopping in the streets of London – the kitchen never was opened!”
