Torrential Rain Coincidence Memories
A 67 Not Out Readers Coincidence Story today. My thanks to Angelina. If you have an interesting coincidence story suitable for publication please use the contact button at the top of the blog page.
"I was driving home from a friend's house and there was a downpour of rain. It was torrential and it made me nervous as the windscreen wipers were barely clearing the windscreen.I was concentrating hard but out of the blue I remembered when, as a child of about ten, I fell off my bike in the rain after a schoolfriend, Tracy T, skidded into my front wheel. I grazed my leg quite badly and since then have always blamed Tracy for a small scar I have on my knee.
I'm now in my mid thirties and had never seen Tracy T since leaving school.
The next day I had to give my mother a lift to the hospital for an appointment and on the way she said, "I never liked that Tracy T, the one who knocked you off your bike." I asked her why she remembered that incident and she said she had no idea why, it just came into her mind.
The following day I was in my car again and there she was. A bedraggled Tracy T was standing at a bus stop and it was raining. I pulled up and shouted out to her but a bus stopped behind me and she got on. I don't know if she had heard me or not. She may not have done because of the rain and the bus engine.
I mentioned this to my mother when I next saw her. She then told me that she had heard from a neighbour that Tracy T had been in town for a couple of days visiting family. As I showered that evening I noticed the scar on my knee and it was quite red. I've no idea why there was a connection with Tracy T over several days. The scar has now once again returned to it's normal colour and can hardly be seen."
