Caught in the Matrix

No-one will believe me, I know, BUT … while driving to work today, I saw a car that looked just like mine. Now you might say, “Really, Wendy? Wow. It’s not as though there are thousands upon thousands of Kia Spectras in the country...” Just hear me out. It was the same exact model and color, with similar wear and tear. It had the same exact black and white paw print “spay/neuter your pet” magnet on the back … in the exact same spot as mine. I couldn’t tell what humane society it was from (I was on a highway in morning rush hour traffic doing about 60 mph at the time), but still. It had a short-ish woman with blonde hair driving.  Again, I didn’t get a good look at her because I was trying to not crash at the time. But I would like it noted that I am a short-ish woman with blonde hair. Here’s the kicker … the license plate was almost identical. Do you know, that was the one thing that made me realize I wasn’t in some sort of time loop where I was early (or late) and passing myself on the highway?

I know they say “pics or it didn’t happen!” Frustratingly enough, I was unable to snap a pic or even get my cell phone out cause, you know … driving.  I swear, I’m not crazy. I’m not.

I’m not.

  1. No. You’re not crazy. Could it be some sort of what people call *Synchronicity”? Who knows? And then even if it is, we are still left wondering why it happened, why you saw it, and what might it mean? Anything? Hmmm.

    Here’s one for ya. Happens to me fairly often.
    So! I go shopping at a large grocery store, or, some other 1-stop shopping place.They have a BIG parking lot. ALOT of people can shop there!

    This also means that folks have many, many “stalls” or places where they can park. However, while I wont say its always (it isn’t) but, lets just say “an remarkable number of repeated times” where—-right as I’m coming out of the store and getting back in my car, funny how right at that moment, “whoever” will just happen to get into *their* car which is parked right next to mine and start-up their car and leave at the exact same moment!

    Not 5 minutes before i did, or 5 minutes after I’m gone, but at the same time, and not ” 4 slots away” in the parking lot but right next to me and at the same time. I’m not anyone famous. 50 other places to park in the parking lot, but it’ll happen. Coincidence? Probably. But the timing, and repetitiveness, still seems a bit odd. Go figure. (Shrug)

  2. This is the way “Outer Limits” episodes usually start. And those people all say that they’re not crazy, too. Over and over and over. And over. It’s all fun and games until people start believing you (or you go and broadcast the whole thing over, say, your website) and then it’s off to the rehabilitation and reprogramming colony on Seti Alpha Seven!

    Say hello to the Qarflings on Seven for me!!

  3. Parallel life broke through and your in the right place at the right time. Just a few tiny changes but you caught yourself. 🙂 I wonder if she had a wee dog who loved her and a strange and devious cat (oh, wait, all cats are like that) at home.
