Yesterday one of my friends from AA asked me if I could chair his meeting today. I told him that I wasn’t sure if I was working today as my job kind of let’s me know if I’m working the day before. So I called him this morning to tell him that I wasn’t working and that I could chair his meeting. He didn’t answer his phone so I figured he would just call me later on. Well I decided to go to my local Alano Club to get some dinner and watch the game. My friend showed up and apologized for not calling me back which is cool with me. Then he told me he got someone to chair his meeting and asked me if I know a guy by the name of such and such. Now I’m thinking to myself the only guy I know by that name is a guy at my work. So I tell my friend “no, I don’t think so”. So before the meeting starts I go to use the restroom. When I walk into the meeting who do I see sitting up front with my friend, my coworker. I’ve been working with this guy for a few weeks and never knew he was in recovery. So after the meeting my friend said “I thought you didn’t know this guy”. My response was that I didn’t know who he was talking about. I think it’s awesome that I live in a large metropolitan city but it can be so small at times. What’s cool about it is now me and this guy have another thing we can relate with eachother other than working at the same place. It’s a big world, but yet it’s so small. The program of alcoholics anonymous never ceases to amaze me.
