Six Degrees

***Six degrees of separation- the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries.***

Since I've known Chris he has wanted to name his son Logan because of a little boy that he used to babysit. He thought that he was the coolest kid and wanted a boy just like him. I even have him on tape telling the story to our OB/GYN just after Logan was born.

Flash-forward six years. Chris was speaking to a nurse here at the hospital that he's known for the past two years. He knew his last name but this time when he looked at his name tag he mentioned to the man that he used to know someone with that last name. He went on to tell him that he had named his son after him. After sharing a few more specifics of where he was at the time, the man exclaimed, "That's my son!".

It turns out that for the last few years Chris has been working with and seeing this man every day not knowing that he named our Logan after his son. Logan's namesake is now 17 years old and still living in Florida.
