Yesterday I had a quick chat with my neighbour who lives in the flat below ours. We’ve said hello before and talked about the weather, the usual, but nothing more.
Now, I’ve found out with his 85th birthday fast approaching he’d grown up in France and had lost everything when the Nazis took his families property. He’s half French! The bloke downstairs fled war torn France when it was liberated. What a life he’s had.
Do you know some one whose life has been revealed through a passing chat?
