I sometimes find that someone from my past just pops into my head totally randomly; an ex, someone you met at a festival or on a night out, an old school friend.
Today, exactly that happened. So, I looked her up… (It’s an old school friend by the way!). Now I've not seen or spoken to this girl in about 8 years, but I came across something quite unusual.
Franny Cat, as she now seems to be known, is on a mission. A mission that is undoubtedly, going to divide opinion.
You’ve seen Serendipity right?
Well, if not, here’s a long story short:
Boy meets girl
Boy and girl fall in love at first sight and spend the most amazing day together
Girl has some wild fantastical view that “If it’s meant to be, it’ll be”
Girl writes her number in a book and sells it to a second hand book dealer
Many years later, boy finds book
Boy and girl fall in love again and live happily ever after.
In truth, it’s not true Serendipity at all, because Boy actually spends all the years in the middle going into every single bookstore he walks past and searching Amazon and eBay to find the copy of this book.
True Serendipity would have meant he’d have found the book lying in the street, or someone gave him a copy for Christmas not having a clue of the story.
ANYWAY, beside the point.
Franny Cat is embroiled in a modern day Serendipity. See the video below:

I can’t quite believe I found this and I’ve been excited about writing this blog all day.
The comments are interesting, as loads of people have, of course, told Franny she’s NUTS and that whoever Alex is, he is going to FREAK THE F*CK OUT.
However, this might not be the case at all. He might be just as NUTS and looking for Franny.
Either way, I think this much effort deserves an answer at least right?!
This got me thinking though. What if this had been the other way round? What if Alex had been trying to find Franny?
I doubt there would have been ANY comments saying he was nuts, in fact, it probably would have been deemed the most romantic thing anyone had ever witnessed. And I’d be calling this blog “A Modern Day Cinderella” , because I would bet that a lot of girls would be coming forward to say that the shoe fit and they were, indeed, Franny.
So, what do you think? Romantic or crazy?
As I said, I think she deserves an answer either way and I, for one, am intrigued to see if they find each other. Fingers crossed!
