Deja Vu Waiting to Happen?

For the last three weeks or so — maybe since Lady Jaye and I joined Stilts at our alma mater’s football games — I’ve felt that I was going to run into someone I used to know. When we were in Williamsburg I thought I might run into Barb, who graduated a year earlier than me and worked with me at Timberland. During my trip to San Fran I thought I might run into my old boss from Oregon. I did have a “small world” moment in California: someone at my company knows Stilts. Stilts’ friend/co-worker is long time friends with my fellow employee’s wife. And no, not that kind of friend.

Can anyone think of a reason why I am having these hunches? The only thing I can think of is that I’ve expected to see more people from my first tenure in Richmond than I have so far.

    1) The only thing I can think of is that I’ve expected to see more people from my first tenure in Richmond than I have so far.
    2) Missing people (wistfulness, loneliness)
    3) Subliminal clues that are not yet obvious to the conscious mind
    4) Psychic
    5) Deluded
    6) Secret mind-control project

    I’ve had a couple of deja-vu incidents, for me they involve sequences (now we’re going to drive around the curve and see X, or, I’ll say X and he’ll say Y and I’ll say Z and then A will walk up to us), not predicted sequences, remembered sequences, though I haven’t placed where/when the incidents happened before.

    I haven’t had a lot of thinking-of-A only to run into A later, at least, certainly not to outweigh the times I *didn’t* hear from A or run into A or whatever.

    Quantum physics weirds time.

    p.s. I do recognize that it could be my mind tricking me (false memory overlays?). But the weird thing during the sequences was, it was like I was on autopilot, in a groove where I saw it happening but it didn’t occur to me to try to change any of the sequence. These weren’t big significant moments, just oddities.
