Mornin’, all—I was reading this listicle this morning and it got me thinking about weird coincidences/moments of serendipity in my life. And made me want to hear yours!
I have a couple that are actually pretty similar to things on the list:
1) My first apt. out of high school was my move in with Homey in Iowa. My dad helped me move and, as we walked into the apartment, he gasped and said, This is the same apt. your mom and I moved into after we got married.
My dad’s a bit of a fibber, and they got married in SLC and this apt. is in a tiny town in IA, so I didn’t put much stock in it. Then my mom visited and gasped.
2) When I was 7, we had a cat who was really mean but I loved him. One night, I was bent over talking to him and he scratched my cheek, drawing blood. My dad was like, That’s it! and drove the cat to his work the next day. He worked about 20 miles away, out in the country at a place where lots of people would drop unwanted cats and he figured the cat would be ok because he and his coworkers fed the strays. So he kicked the cat out of his car and that was it.
Until! A year later, I opened our front door to find a cat who looked just like my cat sitting on the front step. I screamed for my dad and he came and looked and was like, Yeah, he does kinda look like him.... I bent down to pick the cat up and he scratched me on the same cheek, drawing blood. He still had his collar on. It was our cat. It took him a year but somehow he found his way back to our house!
How about y’all? What weird moments do y’all have like this?
