The night before my girlfriend and I were going to see our favourite band called suede, we were chatting about it on WhatsApp. She was playing Scrabble online and sent me a photo of her first go, where she got the letters for SUEDE, which she played on the board. I had some sort of feeling or premonition that if I opened the Scrabble app and started a game then I would get the letters for her favourite suede song, called HEROINE. I began the game and, guess what, I could play heroine when using the N of my opponents word, which was WOVEN. This happened yesterday and I have photographic evidence. Also odd was that my girlfriend's opponent's next word was SUEDE...is this all a coincidence or just weird?
