A very odd coincidence

Ever have one of those moments where things kind of all sorta make some or no sense at all, but it’s just an odd conicidence?


Yeah, I’m having one of those moments now.

 When Isaac was born, he spent 10 days in the NICU. I don’t wish that experience on anyone. Trust me. During his stay, Doug and I did anything we could to keep sane.

To keep ourselves sane in the NICU, we talked about anything we could. We pretended to be as normal as possible in the face of one of the most abnormal experiences that anyone could have. One of the things we did was talk NASCAR. Cripes. NASCAR in Imax was the last movie we saw before the little monkey arrived…

At one point during this coversation, the feeding specialist who was working with our then 3-day old child, decided to have a conversation with him…as we were debating the merits of one driver versus another, she chimes in with-

“No, no, no-the correct response is ‘Go Jimmie Johnson! Go Jimmie!”


Now, here we are, 4 years later and this is what the Monkey decides he’s going to be for Halloween…

Look! I'm Jimmie Johnson! I'm going to win the Sprint Cup!!

He had the choice of all costumes…he picked this one. Do you think that he heard the conversation? Do you think he knows what kept us sane?


Who knows, but whatever it is, it’s one heck of a coincidence.
