Some of you who are on my FB page may know, my son totalled my car yesterday. He wasn't seriously hurt, and neither were any of his passengers, thank God.
Here's the weird part.
I've been working 3rd shift and had clocked out at 8am yesterday. I didn't go to bed until about 1130a, so I figured I'd try to sleep till around 6p or so.
I have a cell phone that is my home phone too. When I'm sleeping, I put it on silent rather than turn it off. This allows me to see the missed calls when I wake up, and decide who to call back and how quickly.
I suddenly woke up from a dead sleep at around 515pm. I automatically glanced at the phone to look at the time, and the phone was ringing (on silent). And it was my kid...calling about totalling the car. He was crying and there ambulance noises in the background, etc. Pretty unsettling to say the least.
It didn't occur to me until later how spooky it was that I woke up at the exact instant that he called me.
Spooky? Or coincidence?
On the coincidence side, I am a TERRIBLE sleeper. I tend to only sleep 5-6 hours a night and I wake up at least twice during that time.
Maybe I'm just overthinking it, but the timing of it just seems awfully strange.
