i don't believe in coincidences. i do believe in bad luck though. i'm totally superstitious. and i believe in karma, too.
i have to share what has happened to mr. h, i might even feel a wee bit bad for him, cause these so called coincidences have really ruined his fun.
it's probably best to start off by telling you a bit about his job. he's on call. that's really all...he waits, the phone rings, a patient needs help and he goes to work. it's after hours work so really most things that should be taken care of are done during the day time. at night there's really no rhyme or reason. some nights he might be busy with a bunch of calls and other times he can go days without any calls. sometimes he can handle the patient's need over the phone or others he has to make a visit. all completely random.
so i don't know if any of you are science fiction-y types. i'm not, but mr. h is. he has been so excited that they've remade the show "V". i do remember this show from when my dad watched it when i was little. sure, it's kind of neat that they are bringing it back.
they've shown 4 or 5 episodes. every single week mr. h settles in to watch "V" and each time...yep-you guessed it! the phone rings and he has to go to work and misses the whole thing. the first or second time he could have said "eh coincidence" but now it's so bad, he's come to expect it!
oh and i have to mention this too, we are probably the only people in the civilized world without a DVR. i know, i know...how can we live? well mr. h lives grumpily since he's missed his show every single week. he's tried watching it on hulu but they are a few episodes behind and on the channel's website but his browser apparently doesn't support their video.
so could this actually be a coincidence? bad luck? maybe it's karma? or perhaps the universe is playing a trick on him?
