What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?Here's one: I went to a haunted house theme park when I was 20 and decided that it would be funny to get my palm read, never ever took that stuff seriously. The palm reader could tell that I wasn't into that kind of stuff so she kept things light and jovial, until I got up to leave when we were done. She said to me "you're going to meet a guy tonight and he's the worst thing for you." I chuckled nervously and then walked out. An hour later, my friend and I were getting chased by a chainsaw guy who stopped the chainsaw and asked for my number. I gave it to him. We dated for about 6 months, he ended up being a serial cheater and a LITERAL pathological liar. Diagnosis and all. I get chills when I see palm readers now.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?When I was learning to ride a motorcycle, I was driving through my neighborhood and I let it fall over, out of my control. I stood there wondering what to do next, when my husband comes rolling up in his car. He said our daughter had said "daddy, mom is in trouble. We need to go find her." So they got in the car and went looking for me.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?About 20 years ago, a co-worker and I went to The Oak Room in Downtown Miami for happy hour. The bar/restaurant was crowded and loud. We sat down at a table and were waiting for our drinks when i felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand. The noise started to fade until i couldn't hear anything. I looked at Genevieve and told her her grandmother wanted me to tell her something. I didn't know her grandmother had passed away. The message was that her grandmother would lay in her bed when she was sick and stare at the clock on her bedroom wall waiting for Gen to get home from school. She would call Gen to come upstairs, but Gen wouldn't come to her. She said she wanted Gen to stop feeling guilty because she knew Gen loved her and that Gen was afraid of her dying. After I told Gen the message, i started hearing the noise in the bar getting higher until it was back to the normal and I had a terrible headache. Gen started crying and she said everything i told her was true. She said she couldn't sleep at night sometimes because of the guilt.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?I have a lot, but this is one of my favorites. When I was younger (young teens) my grandfather had a Mazda truck a little one, two door 5 speed. I LOVED this truck. My dream was to get it when I was older and get it lifted with big tires paint it yellow and put Tonka on the back. I told him this one day and he said I could have it when he died. My grandma said "we have 7 grand kids what about the rest?" My grandpa said "She's my favorite she gets it" lol (they had a huge hand in raising me so this made sense.) Years later the truck was sold which upset me but what are you gonna do. Several years after that (about five give or take) my grandfather passed away. It was the hardest day of my life up until that point. About a week later my grandma called me at like 8 at night. She sounded kinda funny. I asked her if she was ok and she said to me "Do you still want Appa's truck?" (that's what we called him) I was like "What? what do you mean" She went on to tell me that a local tow yard had called her and they had my grandfather's truck. Apparently when they sold it years before whomever bought it never put it in their name so it was still in her name. So they somehow got it and tracked her down. The problem was it had been there for a while and they had no keys. They didn't even know if it ran. The horrible thing was at that time I was a single mother of two and couldn't afford the 700 to get the truck out never mind the repairs etc. It broke my heart all over BUT also made me feel good that he kept his promise. He tried to give me his truck after death. It was so awesome. Wherever that truck is I hope someone loves it as much as I did.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?I mean... it ain't that crazy. When my little brother was born he came out with his hand against his throat. We noticed that he was not making any noise. This was happening until about a week. After a week he made the most noise ever! He was SO loud. And he still is today.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?My very 1st boyfriend passed away about 3-4 years ago. Within days of his passing, I was napping and felt a strong kiss on my check. I strongly believe it was him.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?When my dad passed away I was sitting with my mom and aunt and we were trying to decide what music to play with a video we made of his life. I said oh well we have to play "Insert song name here"...he loved that song. As soon as I finished the word song his song started playing on the radio and I burst into tears it was just such crazy timing and coincidence I felt like he was there.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?There were some crazy coincidences when I got married, the lady that did my makeup had the same name as my deceased grandmother (it's an extremely unusual name) the lady that did my flowers had my name and her daughter had my mother's name (again a unique name). My husband and I ended up getting an apartment on a street with the same name as our wedding venue just by coincidence, when we went on our honeymoon we went out to look for a place to eat the first night and the first place we found was called...you guessed it same name as our street and venue. We wanted to get married in October but it was pushed to November because of price and availability...both our parents were married in November and our anniversaries are a week apart. My lucky number is 16 and my anniversary is 11/6/16. There were a ton of other strange coincidences like our parking structure number had meaning to us and other things I can't even remember now but I don't often notice things like that so a there were a lot of very blatant "What a weird coincidence!" moments.
What Is The Craziest Thing That Has Happened In Your Life?I often spent the summers at my grandma who was part Austrian. We would watch TV with Austrian folk songs and I fell in love with the Tyrolean culture and I wanted to be like Heidi, living in the mountains and singing those songs. Well, here I am now, 30 years later, I own an apartment in South Tyrol, and live on a mountain and there are festivities where people sing folk songs. I am living my dream :) Fun fact: I also worked up on the top of a mountain in a little restaurant-cabin and we often wore traditional clothes!
