I'm having one of those weeks/months where faces from my past just keep popping up. First the Creative Cutie at the NYSFF, then Rob - a guy I met on OkCupid that I dated for 3-months during the first half of this year, but whom I haven't seen since May - sent me a second text to see if I wanted to grab a drink - what's that about? - and now Patricia, a Pilates instructor whose classes I used to love, but who had to stop teaching the majority of her evening classes due to the extortionate cost of childcare and now only teaches apparatus classes on Tuesday evenings. She's a great instructor who has trained a lot of the Pilates instructors in New York, so having her as an instructor was a real coup.
I ran into her this morning as I was leaving the gym on 91st St after a 9am Pilates class. It was a real surprise to see her as she teaches in midtown and lives in the East Village, so the Upper East Side is the last place I'd expect to run into her. It was a funny coincidence as the 9am instructor - who is amazing - had just informed us that she is moving to Hong Kong at the end of October and so will only be around for the next few weeks. I was hopeful that Patricia might be there to talk to the current instructor about taking over her classes, but I think it was just a coincidence.
I wonder who I'll run into next, or maybe like trouble, faces from the past only come in threes!!
