debbie hostess robot lady

These pictures were taken in Cancun on our honeymoon, when we were there almost 4 years ago.

This funny story has to do with what happened here 4 years ago....

And then what happened one week ago at work. 

Right before this picture was taken, Jory and I were walking. And walking and walking and WALKING in the extreme mexican heat wondering if we were ever going to make it to our destination. Which, in all honesty was a lame destination, what we were hoping for were chitzen itza sized mayan ruins, and all we got were... well not so big ones. But we did see the most massive iguana I've ever seen, so I guess that was worth remembering... But that's not where this story is going. 

So as we were walking, looking like two hopeless and thirsty lovers we ran into 2 men. We asked them if we were close to the "famous" ruins and they reassured us it was just around the corner, then followed up with question that I think most people on this vacation start conversations with, "you guys honeymooners"?

So we had a small talk- asked where we were from... etc. 
What are the odds? He lived in Australia, with his BF, and was cruising Mexico, Cozumel (where we were) was a port. Well, we talked about good ole Orem and laughed about the coincidence... He had to get going so he finished up by telling me to go and visit his Mom, and tell her that we met Baron, her son. She works at Smiths in Orem (right by my parents home). 

He told us a way to remember his Mom's name, so we could look for her when we went next. (I'm not going to tell you her name- but) he rymed it with little debbie hostess and robots (seriously, we were never going to forget it).

So for the next few YEARS every single time we went to Smiths, I'd keep my eyes peeled for Debbie Hostess Robot lady. 

No luck. 


Two weeks ago.

I was working in the hand center, and checking in patients. A lady walked up, stated her name. And my heart stopped a little. Thinking, to my self, over and over- how do you know her Sarah?? 


So looking probably as awkward as ever, I repeated her name back to her. Studdered a bit... then nervously just blurted. "I've been looking for you for 4 years!"

then went on to more blurting... "doyouhaveasonthatwenttoMexico4yearsagoandlivesinAustralia??!!"

She did. 

We laughed. and I kind of freaked out a little. It was the best thing that happened to me all week. 

I immediately called Jory and told him that I MET DEBBIE HOSTESS ROBOT LADY.

I should have taken a picture.  It's small  world.
