Coincidence or What?
During the last couple of weeks I have been reading a book entitled 'In the blood' [A genealogical crime mystery] by Steve Robinson. I hadn't read any of it for a couple days as I have been concentrating on writing my new short story: late this afternoon I decided to get back to reading the book.
A few minutes ago; at about 18:05 hrs. I read the following sentence: “According to the IGI Mathew Parfitt was christened on November 23rd, 1803.”
How strange that today is November 23rd. How curious that November 23rd is also my birthday, not quite a christening, but close enough.
Is it a coincidence, is it a sign, or what? I think at least it might be an idea sometime for the plot of a short story.
