There is no such thing as coincidence


One my most favorite movies is V for Vendetta. It came out during the Bush era, and although it is set in England in the "near future", its thoughts and ideas about government were SO appropriate at the time. Beside fueling my political fire, it had Natalie Portman in it. I totally had a girl crush on her. I even chopped my hair off after this movie to try and look like her...turns out...it didn't work.
The movie is pretty deep. And has tons of fabulous quotes. One of my favorites: There is no such thing as coincidence. Only the illusion of coincidence.
So yesterday, I walked into the doctors office. There was one other lady already sitting on the couch. As Dr. Friedman took her back into his office, I heard him say, "Now where were you banded"? And she said "Belgium".
What's that? It struck me kinda funny bc several weeks ago on LBT, someone had read one of my posts in the doctor section about Dr. Friedman and they had sent me a question...saying she was banded out of the country and was looking for a fill doctor! So when she came out of the office, I said, "This might sound kind of strange, but were you on lapband talk asking a girl named Amy about Dr. Friedman"? She said YES, and sure enough....there we were. Weird. Random. Coincidence? So we chatted, exchanged info, and that was that.
Just weird how the universe works sometimes.

  6. I have learned that this is a very VERY small world (just typing that give me nightmares about the "It's a Small World" ride at Disney).
