Earlier today, Cath introduced me to another spouse who’s been in Manila for a couple of months now, and turns out she lives just on the floor below me and can see inside my living room window (which is no surprise considering how our building is set up).
She was telling me that shortly after they moved in, she looked out the window and saw Lily, who likes sitting at the back of the couch, like so…
Anyway, she saw Lily and told her husband…
“It’s weird, I know that dog. I even know her name, it’s Lily! How do I know this?”
Then it hit her: “Carla Runs the World lives in our building!”
I thought that was hilarious, and though I once got the “I read your blog” from Karl’s boss’ boss’ boss (or something to that effect), I never had Lily getting recognize before, and that? Was pretty awesome!
If you’re still reading, welcome to Manila, Ro! And hope it treats you as well as it’s treating us!
