Last week, the boy I babysit asked me for a glass of milk. I reluctantly let him pour the milk and allowed him take it into the family room. He put it on the floor and some of it spilled. Not a big deal or anything, but I said under my breath, “I knew that was gonna happen.” The boy looked at me wide-eyed and said “You knew it was gonna happen? How did you know?!” Obviously, because I’m psychic.
Have you ever had the feeling that something was going to happen before it did? There have been times when I knew the phone was going to ring and knew it was going to be a certain person. Not even expecting a call, I could just feel it. This happened to my mom the other week. Does this ever happen to anyone else? I would call that a psychic moment.
I don’t think coincidences are that weird, but some people find them very strange. A coincidence is defined as “A remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.” If someone is going to a movie at a certain time and they find out that someone they know is going to the same movie at the same time, they would call it a coincidence. I mean, it’s really not that weird. There are only so many activities people can do nowadays. But it’s definitely comes in handy when you have nothing to talk about with the person that you see at the movies. “This is so WEIRD. What a coincidence! Did you like the movie? Yeah me either. See ya never.”
One time I remember talking about a movie with my family that no one had seen in a long time. Lets say, Beethoven. You know, the one with the St. Bernard and the daughter named Rice. Who names their daughter RICE?! Ugh I just found out that it was spelled Ryce. Just no. Anyway, then one of us turned on the TV and Beethoven was on. I feel like that’s a sign of the apocalypse or something.
Something that happens to me a lot especially on Word Press is being on the same wavelength as another blogger. Let’s say you’re thinking about something to write about when you come across a really good topic that no one has written about yet. Awesome, you’re so smart. But then you start reading some blogs and notice that someone wrote about what you were going to write about! Ahhhh! That’s so weird. How does it happen? Why do you have the same thought process as someone else?
One of the best weird situations is when you jinx someone. Not jinx in the fact that you stop something good or lucky from happening, but the kind when you say the same word or sentence as someone else at the exact same time. Whoever says “jinx!” first won’t be murdered in their bed. Serves you right for saying the same word as me. If both parties say jinx at the same time then you have to move onto another variation of jinx such as “double jinx”, “super jinx”, or my brother’s favorite, “rainbow jinx”. If you both manage to say all of these at the same time, then you have to kill each other.
The weirdest thing that happens to people is, hands down, deja vu. Why does our brain create a memory of us doing something that we’ve never done before and only reminds us of it as we’re doing it? I honestly don’t know what I just wrote. Deja vu is weird like that. It messes with your head. I always think that maybe reincarnation is real and that maybe I have old memories from my past self doing the same things. Except I’m pretty sure I was a cat in my past life so…yeah.
I’m just going to tack on one more of my favorite weird instances, Freudian slips. This is when you mean to say something, but another thing comes out instead, revealing your true thought process. For example, if I was about to tell a guy that I hadn’t seen in a while “I miss you” but instead it comes out “I kiss you”, it all of a sudden becomes obvious what I’m thinking of. Does this happen to anyone else? Nope, just me? Kaycoolbye.
