I am writing a book, and I would greatly appreciate knowing what potential readers would want in this situation.
Without getting too deep in the background, I'll just say my two main characters need a perfect, unplanned, out-of-the-blue first meeting in their everyday lives. And I'm not sure what kind of unexpected run-in would be unique, but still not out of the norm. For example, I didn't want it to be something as trivial as while they were grocery shopping, but not something so unusual as while skydiving.
Any ideas?
Thank you in advance for the thoughts!

@nightsong,
Car accident. Encounter at a bus stop. Taking the same class. Dog lovers meet at the dog park. Emergency room after minor accidents. Dentist's office.

Ooh, those are good.
I especially like the car accident and ER ideas. Smile

@nightsong,
I have an idea where two characters have same phone which get exchanged in a book shop. Many unknown calls make them realize that their phone has been exchanged. They contact each other and meet for the first time.
