Another Weird Coincidence

Lindsay and I often say that we are very in tune with the Universe. The number 9 holds a lot of significance to us. Often times we'll be taking about something and then whatever we were talking about will start popping up randomly all around us. Mt. Rushmore for example. We were randomly discussing Mt. Rushmore one day, and then suddenly it was on tv. A couple days later we were picking quarters to use as good luck charms (we were playing the lottery) and lo and behold, the first quarter we picked up has Mt. Rushmore on it.

I wrote about a strange coincidence a couple of days ago, and now I have another one.

Last night Bryan and I were lying in bed talking, and for some reason a thought randomly popped into my head. Jackie and I were in Hershey Park a couple of years ago and we were standing in the store in chocolate world. We had been standing there for what seemed like forever while she decided whether or not she wanted to buy a giant kit kat bar. She was holding a shopping basket, and since Silence of the Lambs is one of our favorite movies, I knew she would appreciate it when I said "It places the Kit Kat in the basket..." She found it hilarious and it was instantly one of our favorite things to say to eachother.

Naturally I started laughing last night and had to explain to Bryan what I was thinking about. I explained the scenario at Hershey, and we started talking about Silence of the Lambs and reciting lines that Buffalo Bill said. Bryan accidently said "She puts the lotion in the basket," so I had to correct him and say "No no, he says IT puts the lotion in the basket." We then discussed why he says IT and not SHE (because he doesnt see her as a person...) and we eventually went to bed.

To make a long story even longer haha... I was listening to the radio this morning and the little girl that plays Susie in the movie "The Lovely Bones" was being interviewed on my morning show. Adorable girl with a thick Irish accent (who knew??). Jo-Jo (the DJ) played a clip from the movie and he couldn't stop talking about how creepy it was (It was when Stanley Tucci lured her into his house to kill her). Jo-Jo asked the girl if it was difficult for her to do such a terrifying scene, and she said it was more difficult for Stanley Tucci because in real life he is such a nice guy and loves his family, etc... She mentioned that Stanley was thankful that he was in such a full costume so he could take it off at the end of the day and not have to deal with the character when not working.

This escalated later into a conversation about if there was ever a character in a movie that was SO freaky to you, that you could never enjoy them in other movies or tv shows cause your mind always goes back to the creepy character.

Here's the coincidence... Sarah (another dj) said that Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs really freaked her out and when she see's him in other things she can't even appreciate him cause she always thinks back to when he was Buffalo Bill. The real coincidence - It evolved into a conversation about how he says "IT puts the lotion in the basket," instead of "SHE puts the lotion in the basket." Pretty much the same conversation that I had last night.


p.s. I really want to see the Lovely Bones now.


  1. I don't understand things like this! I think we need to look into precognition a little more. This girl at my work was telling me about this book (I'll have to ask her the title) that's all about coincidences. And did I tell you about mine recently? Well the other night I had a dream about work and I dreamed that this girl Meghan (who was recently laid off) was coming back to work for Bratt Decor. Well the next day, out of NOWHERE, my boss is like, we're bringing Meghan back. there was no way that I would have known this at all.

    In conclusion, **9!**

  2. Lindsay I knew you would appreciate this! The two of us have a gift you know... I've had it since I was little. I would say "I wish this episode of *insert show* would be on, and I'd turn on the tv and it was the exact episode I was hoping for! And this was before you could know what episode was coming on like you can now.
