I’ve been debating whether or not I should blog about a recent occurrence. I finally decided to share it with the world, in the hopes that someone can perhaps shed some light on the issue for me. You will either find this totally mind-blowing or utterly inconsequential.
Below are two email correspondences between my friend Inga and me. We hadn’t spoken to each other for about a month before this exchange. They have been slightly edited to take out the parts where we wrote about our plans to get together.

Hi Miss Hye,
It’s been so long since we last spoke. I hope you are well.
In other news, you were in my dream last night. You were getting a haircut. You were getting bangs. You looked pretty good, but you were having the stylist work off of this picture of a woman who was really ugly, almost caricature-like. It was weird. Have you gotten a haircut lately? Maybe that would explain it.

Subject: Re: HI
hahahahaha i dont have time to check those dates right this second but
i saw this email and want you to know that i just got bangs like last
week. and they were “impulse bangs” from a picture in the salon magazine. you’re amazing.
Now, I was astonished for days after reading this email. Are you? Was it just a coincidence, or am I clairvoyant? I know I’m not special and that lots of people dream things that wind up happening in real life. But how is this possible? Can someone enlighten me?
In other news, I had a dream last night where a pair of red and white sneakers (they were either Nikes or Pumas) were featured prominently…in case any of you bought new sneakers recently.
