This would be both amazing and frightening. Amazing to find that you were, say, standing near your spouse years before you met them. Frightening when you see who your spouse was with at the time…When my grandparents still lived in Ft Lauderdale, Tallahassee was the halfway point on our 2-day Vacation drives. A few summers in a row we stayed at this one hotel just S of I-10 on Monroe St., next to the Shoney’s.
My wife, whom I met in 2006, grew up just N of that intersection and would’ve been late in HS/early in college during those years, commuting from her parents’ house to HS/FSU every day. We were almost certainly within a mile of each other, at least once or twice, although probably not actually standing next to each other.
(She was probably playing the first Def Leppard album in her Galaxie 500. I was probably listening to Kasey Kasem tapes in the way-back of the Family Truckster.)
