So I’m sure most of you know of the concept of 6 Degrees of Separation, or if you don’t, well, I guess we’ll forgive you and I’ll give you the handy-dandy Wikipedia link.
Of course I’ve heard about 6DoS. But never really thought about it.
Sometimes you never know what commenting can lead you to learn!
Thinking, “Hm, that’s interesting she feels that way, I gotta ask…
“What if we had class together once?” I so innocently asked at the end. Because as two UCLA alums, that’s definitely how we would’ve gotten to know each other, right? CLASS!
Without thinking too much about it, I click through my other internet pages.
Ah, more planning for the Surprise Birthday Party for a friend.
I read through the messages, and come across one that catches my eye:

Wait a minute!
A girl named Vyvy? That’s funny, I read a blog by a girl named “Vyvacious”.
Mistaking a comment as being about strippers?!
But it can’t be! That would be so coincidental!!
So I ask:
And so we’ve figured it out.
We’ve met on WordPress, been commenting on each other’s posts for months.
And we share some of the same friends!!
So this weekend, both Vyvacious and I prepared to celebrate our friend’s birthday.
And we prepared to meet in person.
As with many of the blogs I read, I often found myself thinking as I read Vyvacious’ blog, “Man, I bet if we ever met in person, we’d totally get along!”
And you know what? We did.
And just like that, blog friend became real friend.
