I dunno-I've been talking about this with friends recently because it's got me thinking...Have any of you guys out there noticed a change going on out there?
I know, I'm being deliberately vague; but this is a bit of a vague subject. I'll try and get more into specifics without naming names and all that:
There seems to be an increase in the number of 'bad' things happening to people around me...An ex-friends gets himself run over (3 times), I lose an uncle and a great aunt, a friend gets a tumour in his spine, another has a different form of cancer, several marriages and long-term relationships end, I and a friend have to rescue a woman in the street who is being wrestled to the ground by a young man, yet another friend of mine suffers whiplash from a prang at a roundabout while an old friend alost cuts off his hand in a chainsaw accident, not to mention the two strokes affecting people of my age...
And it doesn't stop there: I've had reports from friends about their friends dying or being injured. Not to mention someone throwing a pint glass at someone in the Tart last friday and a woman being punched out there the day after.
All this has happened in the past month or so.
What's going on?
I'm not given to religious beliefs and I certainly don't believe in karma; life has taught me that much. But it's like there's been a sudden increase in bad shit going on.
Is there something in the air? I know that a few of you out there have noticed it too.
I'm not overly worried, but you have to admit it's damn strange.
In fact, going back to the glass-throwing incident, I have to say that was a first for me...I'm 35 years old and I have NEVER been in a pub at the time of any incident of violence...It's like I have an aura of "nothing untoward will happen" surrounding me.
My powers are weakening!!!
But seriously, it's weird.
