No one knows better than Alex and Donna Voutsinas that it’s a small world after all.

Thirty years ago, when they lived in separate countries long before they met and married, a family shot of little Donna at Walt Disney World captured Alex in a stroller in the background.

“It just blew our minds when we realized,” Alex Voutsinas, a 32-year-old transplanted Montrealer told the Star Thursday from south Florida.

I’ve had something similar happen.

I was at a wedding(some coworker of my father) when I was 6 or so and they gathered up all the kids and got a picture. I stood next to this icky girl. We moved away shortly thereafter.

I went to college, met Amanda, started dating her...going through pictures...there she was..next to me at a wedding in the early 70s. She turned out to be a cheating whore, but who knew.

Also, in your picture...what a classy women in the blue shorts on the left. Nice heels.

This already happened with Disney — Goldie Hawn a dancer in a shot with Kurt Russell from a film they were in together DECADES before they’d ever met and became lovers.

After my husband and I were married for many years, my husband was talking to my mother’s cousin by marriage. It turns out that my mother’s cousin’s father had been married to my husband’s aunt.

I say “had been” because she murdered him.

I've been divorced for 12 years.
My new gal pal and I were looking at some 20 year old home videos from my marriage. We found some of her watching a local park concert with her children and her "ex" that I attended and video taped with my "ex" and my kids.

My wife and I have a similar story - although no photos to prove it.

I went to a high school in upstate NY, she went to high school in Connecticut.

We both had our senior class trips on the same day, and we both went to the same place - Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ.

Well, the first thing that me and my group of friends did when we got there early in the morning was run right to the Batman roller coaster. A group of girls got there at about the same time as us, and my group of friends - 7 of us total - started chatting with that group of girls - about 8 or 9 of them - while standing in line.

I end up sitting in a row (four seats to a row on the coaster, if I recall) with one of the girls. I don't talk to her too much, as I had a a girlfriend back home. We certainly didn't discuss college plans or anything.

Well, by the time fall comes around and I head off to undergrad, this same girl ends up going to the same school! And it was a small school in upstate NY that we both started at - only about 4K students total.

One of my brothers was in his younger days a guide taking tourists down the Grand Canyon on mules. The first time he went to meet his future wife’s parents there was a picture on the wall of her parents on a mule trip at the canyon and guess who their guide was? They remembered him but he didn’t remember them. She was not on the trip with them but I always thought that was odd that he met his in-laws years before he even met their daughter.

Speaking of couples, have you ever wondered why you never see Mickey and Minnie Mouse together? It’s because Minnie Mouse is really Mickey in drag. Think about it.

It's okay, I'm quite happy with you being beautiful instead of cute.

Bugs Bunny is way hotter in drag than Mickey.

I have a story like that.

When I was 14 I was a Civil Air Patrol cadet. I was Information Officer for my cadet squadron, and was interviewed by my local paper for an article about the unit — we were recruiting.

My future brother-in-law (then 15) was an airplane buff, so when his mother saw the piece she read it to him, urging him to join. My future wife (then 10) heard my name and thought “I’m going to marry him some day. What an awful last name.” Then she wondered why she could possibly have thought that. She had never met me. Her brother had never met me (we were going to different Junior High Schools then). He did not join the CAP squadron because he wasn’t the joining type.

Eventually, years later, her brother and I connected when we were in High School because we had similar interests (model-making, airplanes, wargaming). A couple of years after that I met his kid sister. A few years later we started going together because we . . . well, fit together. Eventually we married and have been married for 30+ years.

(She is right though. I have an awful last name. But then she is right about most things.)

I’m from Montana. I was serving in Machinery Division of a fast attack submarine, about 15 men in the division. One of the guys I worked with, who is from Virginia, and I both married girls who went to the same high school at the same time in a small town in Michigan.
