“Kurt Vonnegut referred to it as the karass: people who seem to follow you your whole life. It explains why you see Janice at the coffee shop all the time and then again during your vacation in Cancun. It explains why Larry, who grew up across the street from you, married your best friend from graduate school, without being introduced by you.” — Allison Amend, mediabistro

I swear there is one girl who:
a) Lived in the dorm next to mine for freshman and sophomore year.
b) Studied abroad with me junior year.
c) Lived down the street from me senior year.
d) Was at my AmeriCorps orientation the year after that.

Yet we never had any desire to become friends. Who’s in your karass?
