Back in college, I was on a retreat. It seemed like the most peaceful thing to do was to find a tree, take my Bible and enjoy some time reading it while looking at the beautiful scenery West Virginia displays in the fall.
Then all of a sudden I heard the loud sound: the Omph, omph, omph coming from a nearby tree.
There was a college aged boy playing the tuba under a neighboring tree.
First off, what college student picks the tuba as an instrument to take on a retreat, and secondly, didn't he see me under my tree, Bible in hand.
Turns out, playing a tuba is a good way to meet someone. At dinner that evening, he came up to me an apologized saying he hadn't seen me there. It sounds strange to say it, but that started a good friendship between the two of us. I haven't seen him in years, but we spent many hours together in college. I was already a coupon queen back in the mid 1990s before it was cool, and there was a couple times he'd join me on shopping trips.
To think our friendship started over the loud sound of a tuba while on a retreat!
