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.
