How does this happen?

What is it?
I have been noticing coincidences, the increasing incidence thereof, for years, but sometimes I just fall back open mouthed.
Two days ago I was emailing with someone and thinking of saying “we are on the same plane”. That led to the thought of plane, plain and possibly plein. It’s pronounced the same as the others, but it’s French for full, replete, e.g. je suis plein, I am full, had enough. Not a common word. Never see it in print.
Tonight on Ch 44 West TV there is a program called “Plein Air Painting TV”.
How does this happen?! I swear I have never seen this word in print on a TV screen before, ever. Yet it occurs twice in three days. I am psychic. I’m convinced of it.
Yet week after week I buy Lotto tickets and I haven’t won the big prize. How can this be?
Nearly forgot – last week I had a haircut at a barber in Duncraig. When I looked at the till docket several hours later (to enter it into my Expenditure notebook), I noticed the name of his business is Joe and Co. What brand T-shirt was I wearing? Joe and Co from BigW.

I’ll have to go back and ask him, where did you get your name?



Today I heard reference to the deadly nature of the current flu season and the need to have Tamiflu available. I asked at the chemist if they had supplies, but not yet, next week. If the packet I have in the fridge has passed its expiry date, she said, it’s probably useless.
Mine is expiry 12/2009. Huh! I took it to Europe in 2008, too, so it hasn’t been kept cold all the time.
I’m feeling better, noticeably better. My legs are improving. I don’t feel the need to use my stick as much. I can walk more easily. I feel brighter and the doctor said he could see it yesterday, without me saying anything.
I know why. I know exactly why, and I can’t tell you. If only, if only I’d known this 10 years ago!
There is a fashion for time-lapse video on the net at the moment, particularly for astronomy and night star scenes. To be honest, I’d become a bit blasé about them.
But! But! This is the best thing I have ever seen:
I can’t say any more than See It!
