In the truth is stranger than fiction department...I was out shopping for the day; my H was home. Knock at the door: hello, I'm a friend of your wife's from high school. It was an old BF of mine. I have not seen or spoken to him in over 30 years. He and his wife used to send my mom Christmas cards but stopped a few years ago. I have no idea how he found my address or my married name.
He said he needed extra miles to reach elite status with his airline so he flew out to see me. He lives halfway across the country and we live in a rather remote area at least two hours (and a ferry ride) from our major airport. It is two flights to get here from his city, plus rental car plus hotel.
My dear H invited him in, offered him a glass of wine and chatted about the BF's career and business for an hour! Not much said about me or either family. H asked for BF's contact info which he left, but my H did not give him any of my info (we have an unlisted phone number). H is being very mature about this, I must say.
I find this so very weird. I don't know what to think. Who flies across the country and shows up on an old girlfriend's doorstep unannounced? Thoughts?
