Things that make you go, “Hmmm.”

Coincidence, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, is “a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.” You know, like finding a quarter on the ground, then going to your car and discovering if you don’t put another quarter in the meter, you’ll get a ticket. It just so happens, you have an extra quarter. Another good example would be remarking to your best friend that it would be such a thrill to own a pair of expensive _________, then as you pass by a store in the mall, you find that item is 65% off, and you can finally afford to buy it.

Has this ever happened to you? I can’t say it’s happened to me all that often, but it’s happened a lot to quite a few people I know. I guess some people are more prone to it than others.

    When I first moved out of the house I had just enough money to pay my bills but not to buy stamps to send them out. (Crazy since I haven’t bought stamps in years now!) I told myself not to stress as I walked out to my car. Laying on the ground next to my car was a ten dollar bill. I looked around to make sure I shouldn’t see if it could’ve belonged to someone nearby. No one was outside so I used it to buy stamps. That memory will stick with me for forever because it was so coincidental! Nice post!
