Something completely weird and strange and odd and bizarre happened to me this past weekend.
So yesterday (March 9th, 2013), I was taking a midday nap, and I dreamt that I had sent a text to a friend of mine to let her know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer was turning 16 years old. In the dream, I had also gotten into an argument with someone who was claiming that Sarah Michelle Gellar had won an Oscar for the first season of BTVS in 1996. I said, uhm…that’s impossible. She could not have won an Oscar for a TV show that hadn’t aired yet (Plus, she wouldn’t have won an Oscar for a TV show anyway… it would have been an Emmy had it happened, but that’s beside the point.)
Now, mind you — up until yesterday (AFTER the dream), I had only had a hunch that BTVS had premiered in 1997 (as opposed to ’96 or ’98), but I never knew the exact original air date. After waking up from my nap, I was curious, so I grabbed my phone to look up when BTVS had actually premiered…
March 10th, 1997. In other words, today…exactly 16 years ago.
I dream texted my friend that BTVS was turning 16, ONE DAY before it was actually going to happen in reality — and I swear that prior to this dream, I had no clue that it had originally aired on today’s date, exactly 16 years ago.
What are the odds?! Of all of the random ass things that I could have dreamt about on Saturday, March 9th…the universe told me that BTVS was about to turn 16 and to alert my friend the day before. Which, after the freaky realization that my dream self had actually been correct, I did in fact text that very information to that very friend. Hence, my dream became true on two accounts.
Some might call this a coincidence and leave it at that. I think this is the universe’s way of making sure I am well-informed ahead of time. Or maybe this is my super power…
