Radio coincidence

I listen to Radio 4 (speech radio) all day most of the time. The number of times that I hear the same word as I’m typing (or saying or reading) is so astonishing that I started to note them until the list got too long and time consuming to keep up. These words aren’t common conjunctions or anything, they are often not the sort of word you’d expect to come across in an average day let alone at the same moment, sometimes several times a day. It bothers me a lot. Of course there is the possibility that in all this background language @ whatever words per minute versus the words I’m dealing with in my own life you’d expect some coincidence, but I still find it hard to accept as not noteworthy.
