saawariya . 10y Around six or seven years ago, a large portion of my neighborhood burned down in the fires that swept through southern california. While helping my friend's family pick through the rubble of their home for anything that could be salvaged, I saw a speck of white paper in the midst of one of the more blackened areas.

Bleek0878 . 10y Creepiest coincidence I can think of is when I was in high school, it was around the time Princess Diana had died.

Everyone in the break room was watching coverage of the funeral when my grandmother said, I wonder if Mother Theresa would get this kind of coverage if she died?

DogsBlimpsShootCloth . 1 10y When I was in 7th grade I had a serious crush on a girl. One day her mom was driving a bunch of us somewhere and everyone was talking and making jokes. I can't remember the exact conversation, but I had a moment of silence where it was my chance to make everyone laugh. I made a super lame joke that brought silence. My moment to impress was ruined.

tomdwilliams 10y When I was about 12 I had a terrible nightmare in which two planes collided in mid-air. It was extremely vivid and I woke up in a panic. My bedroom was right next to the family bathroom and after about 30 mins of lying in bed freaking out I noticed the landing light come on and knew that a parent was heading to the bathroom.

euphonious_munk 10y Six years ago, because of my drinking, I'd been homeless for about 8 months. I'd been at a shelter for a few weeks and one day, as I walked from the library back to the shelter for dinner, I decided I couldn't take anymore. I was ready to kill myself. That prior August my mother had passed away, so on the street that evening I said to her, I can't take it anymore, mom. Help me. Back at the shelter, after dinner, us bums waited for showers and bedtime. That evening the shelter had more residents than usual

I immediately thought, I'd like to met these people. I kept it next to my computer for a few years. After a few years passes, I'm going through my papers and find a postcard from my girlfriend that I don't recognize. It takes me a few minutes to understand that I'm reading the postcard I'd put aside years earlier, between someone who
