Teddy Bears and Telepathy
So you don’t believe in telepathy. Well, try this on for size.
On Friday evening, my wife and I got to talking about our childhood (we don’t have television) and she couldn’t believe that I had never had a teddy bear. I was pretty sure that I hadn’t, but phoned my sister in the UK to confirm. She didn’t answer the call, but called me back the following morning. I jokingly told her why I had called her the previous evening.
She confirmed that neither of us had a teddy bear when we were young, but that the reason she couldn’t take my call was that the previous evening she was attending a social function and she won a teddy bear! Her comment on receiving the prize was. “That’s the first teddy bear that I’ve ever had”.
