Some people are gobsmacked, others surprised or amazed, but how many are truly astonished?
Such is the single word prompt today.
I don’t think I have ever had this effect on anyone. Sure I’ve surprised a few people, but astonish them? That would be a No.
As for anyone having that effect on me? Maybe.
However, I do remember an absolutely amazing coincidence coming out of Amsterdam’s Centraal Station on May 11th 1991 when the barrel organ starting playing just as I cleared the gates.
It was my first time ever out of the country and we were on our honeymoon.
I think you could definitely say I was astonished then as I felt like a Queen/Million Bucks though Hubby assured me he hadn’t planned it (but wished he had).
