Seeing double

While people were getting off the train at L’Enfant Plaza this evening, I caught a glimpse of a guy about my size and my build. There were two specific things I noticed about him. (1) He was wearing a Yankees jacket, just like the one I was wearing; and (2) he was carrying in his hand, the same book that I am currently reading, Rob Sawyer’s Hybrids. That was all I could make out and then he was lost in the crowd, the doors closed, and the train continued on.

There are two possible explanations: either it is a complete coincidence; or at some point in the future, I will be sent back in time and end up being seen by my past self while trying to make a quick getaway.

Cold November Rain

In one of those eerie coincidences that takes place every now and then, my iPod, playing in shuffle-mode just started playing GnR’s “November Rain”. It is neither cold, nor raining here. But it is November 1st. Two One out of three ain’t bad.

And in a huge coincidence…

Now that I am working from home, I can actually watch the Yankees/Red Sox game that is starting in 5 minutes. Que suerte!
