We didn't have much money, so I began to go regularly to the local thrift store, and to look at garage sales. I searched high and low for a secretary. It occupied my mind for much of my time. I felt driven to find one! After searching for awhile, I finally kind of gave up the effort, and hoped that some day I would find one. About that time, my in laws came to visit. My mother in law said, "Oh, I have something that I bought for you if you would like it." I followed her out to their van, and in the back was a beautiful, used secretary! I couldn't believe my eyes! I had been searching for so long!
So I ask you, readers, was this just mere coincidence? Was it just two events that occurred simultaneously, that were causally unrelated? I certainly never mentioned to her that I was looking for one. What do you think about this synchronicity?
