Stretching coincidence

I'm currently recovering from a leg injury, the process involves stretching. Because of covid, I am having remote classes, I was about to stretch after finishing my work, my teacher sent a message to the group telling us to have a 10 min break and stretch our legs.... Why does this always happen to me lol

"And it was.. Will Smith"

When I was 17 I met my best friend at high school. We had an Italian class together. Our teacher told a "friend of a friend" story where her friend was in New York and got trapped in a lift. In the story it was the friend, a man and two bodyguards. The story ends with the line.. ".. and it was Will Smith" My friend and I couldn't believe how ridiculous this story was and later found out it's a popular urban legend with the famous person inter changeable (Arnold Schwarznegger, Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone etc.) Anyway.. ten years later and I hadnt thought of it since. It randomly popped into my head so I text my best friend out of the blue "...and it was... Will Smith" She then replied "I cant believe you've just said that. I listened to a podcast yesterday and someone told the story.. I couldn't stop laughing and I meant to tell you"
