Mirror Coincidence: If you need something, just ask
I was at a girl's poker night party at my friend's house and we started talking about a mentalist that I was going to see in Vegas. I was trying to explain that mentalists aren't psychic but that they just are very good with non-verbal signals. I started looking around for a small object like a penny to demonstrate one of the tricks but I couldn't find one in my pockets or in my friend's junk drawer. Finally, I said "Does anyone have a penny?" and right then my friend Jami handed me the penny she was holding in her hand. She said that just that moment she realized she had a single penny in her pocket and she thought it was weird.
As a side note, I demonstrated my trick and my friend Amy who is really good at reading people guessed 7 out of 7 correctly which hand I was hiding it in, even though I was trying to hold my hands exactly the same.
