First in an occasional series of observations about premonitions or synchronicities (or chance coincidences). I used to post these on Marcel Cairo's "Little Psychic Moments" page on Facebook, which is no longer around. The practice follows from two old essays I wrote, Unusual Occurrences and More Unusual Occurrences.
This afternoon while almost napping in a dreamy reverie, I free-associated a memory of an episode of Frasier in which the good doctor encounters a strange woman who cuts off her hair and stuffs pillowcases with it. The hair-pillowcase detail is what I focused on.
This evening, while making dinner, I watched an episode of The King of Queens in which the main character says, "Sometimes I think of shaving it all off [= all my chest hair] and just stuffing it in a pillowcase and sleeping on it."
For what it's worth, a disproportionate number of these ancedotes involve TV sitcoms. I think this is because laughter, like fear, is a very primal reaction, but who knows?
