After visiting the registration area to get the rest of my materials, my phone beeped to alert me to a voice mail. I retrieved it; it was from a dear old friend who said "Are you in Florida? I could swear I saw someone who looks just like you in the lobby of the Dolphin Hotel."
I called him back and it turns out he is here as a vendor for the same conference. We had a quick drink as he had another obligation and promised to get together again before he leaves on Tuesday.
It really is a small, small world.
