London is a big city

Some years ago my young niece visited England and I spent four days showing her the tourist sights in London. On the third day we were waiting for the underground at Oxford Circus station and she asked whether I knew anyone in London, and whether I would be surprised if we bumped into someone I knew. As I was answering, a train pulled into the station, the doors open, and the first man to step out was an old friend from Cambridge, who introduced himself with a "Hi Colin - how are you?". Neither the conversation nor the meeting are very unexpected, but the timing and the staging were exquisite!
