So I'm interning on this dive boat and I hear this distinctive voice. I look over and I see Doug Grindstaff a friend I worked with almost 15 years ago in Los Angeles.

I walked over and said, "Doug?!". HE looked at me like I was a weirdo. I have a military hair cut now and the last time Doug saw me, not only was I 15 years younger but I had hair half way down my back.

We both couldn't beleive it. We caught up a little bit and then did the dive. Everyone was turning green due to the big swell. Unfortunatly some of the divers ended up feeding the fish and we had to scrap the second dive.

Doug and his friend came over to visit later in the afternoon before they flew home to LA. It was a great out of the blue experience.
