I am a huge fan of Synchronicity, the phenomena, as well as the Police song ;)
I wrote about it here and I just find it fascinating how things can seem so coincidental and happen all over the place and still connect. I also happen to speak Simpson's as a second language, so pretty much everything I think about runs through the "can I find a response from a Simpsons episode? Of course I can!")
Anyway, this morning I was out buying embroidery floss and trying to color match a dragon and thought, "Sweet Merciful Crap," it is hard to color match floss like it is paint.
That phrase is probably one of my all time favorite Homerisms and I say it a lot in my head. I even said it on my Instagram post this morning because that phrase should be uttered at least once a day if possible. (Homer says this when he sees what his car looks like after it was decorated with sea life in the Summer of 4ft 2.)
Just wait, I know you are wondering why I am babbling about The Simpsons when I clearly started this blog about Synchronicity and while I am like a squirrel with SHINY, I am on topic. Trust me.
So, a bit later in the afternoon I was looking in my IG feed and someone had posted about how to get strange looks while buying art supplies at the hardware store. MY very FIRST reaction after the snortgiggle was to think of Homer going to a mini mart to really buy illegal fireworks but he had to disguise his request so it wouldn't look so... illegal?
Homer: (in front of the Li'l Valu-Mart) Ah! I bet this place sells illegal fireworks. Just go in and act casual like you buy 'em all the time. (enters the store and talks to the clerk) Hi. Um- Let me have one of those porno magazines, large box of condoms a bottle of Old Harper, a couple of those panty shields (whispering) and some illegal fireworks AND one of those disposable enemas. no, make it two.
Li'l Valu-Mark Clerk: My apologies, sir, but the sale of fireworks is prohibited in this state and is punishable by- (a customer leaves the store) Follow me.
Later after he gets home and Marge unpacks his bag: Gee, I don't know what you've got planned for tonight Homer, but count me out! (this was the line that popped into my head after I read the IG post about art supplies and fun looks at the hardware store)
This is from the exact same episode, Summer of 4ft 2, that Sweet Merciful Crap came from.
And that is synchronicity. It may not be the OMG the entire UNIVERSE is talking to me kind of synchronicity but it is still a variety of it. Who knows, I can't see the entirety of the Universe's thinking, so it may end up being a cosmic nudge from above... or just something saying Hey Hi Hello Have a Great Day.
Either way, I'll take it. And by the way... Hey! hi, hello, have a great day!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
