Walking to my noon yoga class yesterday, a stranger at the intersection of Broadway and Higgins caught my eye. A woman of my same age, height, and hair color was wearing my exact same, brand-new, flashier-than-the-average Patagonia fleece. And she had on my same exact Dansko clogs (i.e. “Rocky Mountain high heels”), too.
We smiled in the crosswalk. A coincidence, but not really worthy of mention.
Except that I saw the exact same woman standing at the exact same intersection on my walk back from yoga two hours later.
She laughed. “Did you get your fleece at the Gambler’s Sale?”
I laughed. “Uh, huh. Did you get your shoes at Hide and Sole?”
“Oh, yeah,” she replied. “Aren’t we just the typical Missoulians?”
Only in Missoula, baby. Only in Missoula.
What’s your latest “Only in Missoula Moment”?
(If you’ve never had one (is that possible?), I invite you to stand on the corner of Broadway and Higgins and let the moment find you.)
