Once, many years ago, the father of one of Ana's friends, who is also Belgian, drove us home and, passing her house, said "You know, she's Belgian too!"

It really is like a very small social group.

Anyway, today what she said is "I haven't seen you in so long! And how is your mother? I always think it's so funny there's another Belgian on my street and I don't see her!"

She then went on to tell me that the nieces are so polite and so kind and so friendly, until I wondered if she had me confused with some other Belgian-American. But then she said they're very smart and creative, so I knew she had the right kids :)

I was on the bus, by the way, because I was heading down to the CVS to pick up a prescription. The pharmacist at the counter was Very Tall Pharmacist, and the answer to "how tall is he?" is 6' 7". I know, because he wrote that on his nametag. I guess somebody got tired of being asked! (And now I know his actual name, too, but I believe I'll probably always think of him as Very Tall Pharmacist.)
