Bizarre Coincidence

I drove Roxanne to Little Rock early yesterday morning for a day-long meeting, and I hung out with a good friend all day. We picked her up after the meeting and went out to eat and drink. Decided to stay ner Little Rock last night and drive home this morning, but had to leave very early.

About 4:30 in the morning, starting our trip home, I turned on the radio. Suite Judy Blue Eyes was playing. Hey, that's nice. Then I noticed that a selector button had somehow got punched, probably by my coffee cup in the nearby holder. The display said "TAPE." What was playing was not the radio after all, but an old CSN tape that had been in the player for who knows how long, months at least, maybe years. We don't listen to tapes anymore, the car has a cd changer.

Well, I like the song and all, but I wanted to hear the radio, so I punched the selector to switch to radio. The display now said RADIO, the unit switched over to the radio, just like it was supposed to...to the radio playing Suite Judy Blue Eyes in almost the exact same spot. I had to switch back and forth several times to confirm that it was really a bizarre coincidence and not an equipment fluke.

Happened just like that.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Coincidence . . . "the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection"

There are many philosophers, physicists and new agers that propose that there are no coincidences. The events happen for a reason.
