Mirror Coincidence: Aliens among us

This is a fun coincidence, I think. At work we are in the midst of a United Way campaign. As a fundraiser, one group orchestrated a Family Feud game. My department's mascot is a big blow up alien named Earl, so in honor of Earl we named our team the 'martians' and all wore green.

The second question in our Family Feud game was 'What are the physical characteristics of an alien?.' The organizers swore up and down that the question assignment was random and that it was just a coincidence!

Mirror Synchronicity: Butterfly

I was in my living room reading and hanging out with my cat. I noticed that she was intently watching a butterfly. I watched her watching the butterfly for a couple of minutes. When I looked down to continue reading, the very next sentence in the book was a butterfly metaphor.

Mirror Synchronicity: you've got mail

Three people today told me that I would be receiving something in the mail in the next few things and they were talking about three different things.

I love getting mail...

Mirror Synchronicity: Reunion on the mind

BJ, a friend of mine, was driving to the airport for his 20 year reunion (class of 1988.) He had not been to other reunions before and he was excited to see old friends again.

On his way to the airport, he stopped for gas. He wasn't paying attention when he filled his tank but when he looked over at the pump, it was 8.888 gallons.

Incidentally, the reunion was on 08/08/08 but that was no accident, just a very clever reunion planner.
