The last time I bought a Powerball ticket was about 2 years ago. I bought one tonight because of a couple of events that happened today while I was at work driving around for Uber... LOL
Well as usual I was sitting at the airport waiting for a ride, and I kept chanting over and over again, I want to Marco Island ride, Marco Island ride, Marco Island ride, over and over again. It's a nice long ride and it's slow cuz it's off-season now until October, so I thought I'd play a little game just for fun.
Well the ride I got wasn't Marco Island, it was Naples Florida, which is about half the amount of Marco. So I said to myself okay well I can't complain and headed north on 41 US 41 back to the airport. I stopped at a 7-Eleven to take a break smoke a cigarette and eat a light snack.
After finishing my smoke I got into the car and I immediately got a ping. The Ping said that it was a 45 minute+ ride, so I said cool. So I get to my destination and I'm looking at the guy getting in and I'm thinking I know this guy from somewhere.
Long story short he happens to my friend I met about 5 years ago through another friend.
Now here's the kicker, guess where he was headed to? That's right!, Marco Island!!!....... Shut the door..... Red flag!
During the trip we spoke back and forth about what had happened during those years that passed, and the beginning of the conversation I told him that the odds of this happening is really really creepy, and he totally agreed. I told him I'm buying a Powerball ticket today because of this event, and he said he already had 5 tickets LOL
Remember, at the airport I was hoping to get a Marco Island ride, and.....hee
I believe that sometimes synchronicity can happen, but it's very rare. I know the math people will say this is just an event that was inevitable given enough time, I get it, nevertheless it's still intriguing.
Has this type of situation happened to any of you?
