On August 31, 2013 I was with my husband and step-daughter at a public event. There were quite a few well known people in attendance. We were walking around and noticed that there were Meet and Greets for them and walked over. When we walked over to the table where there were several people we were interested in saying hi to. We approached the table and I glanced down to the end of the table and my heart started fluttering and I felt incredibly anxious.
We made our way after talking and autographs to the opposite end of the table. I was happy to meet him but nothing more. Walking up to him he seemed like any guy. He was friendly and personable. I asked if my step-daughter and I could get a picture with him. He joked that the picture came with a free hug. He walked up and asked if I was ready for a hug. Of course I hugged him, it was awesome. We said goodbye and went on our way.
I really hadn't given a second thought to any of it besides thinking that was a great experience. The next afternoon while making plans at lunch my step-daughter mentioned he was going to be speaking and wanted to see him. I said it was fine so she and I finished our lunch and headed to hear him. My husband stayed behind to pay for lunch. She and I found a good place to sit and just waited for everything to start. We talked about everything but him. Other than being a nice guy there was nothing spectacular about him. We sat through the Q&A and were leaving.
I don't remember much of the conversation as we were leaving because I had an overwhelming feeling of someone watching me. I slowed down and glanced around. No one was even looking in my direction. I kept walking. We were almost to the door and it hit me. The matter of fact thought hit me so hard it was like running full speed into a brick wall, "I am going to spend my life with that man. " I was so dazed that I wasn't walking straight. My step-daughter asked if I was ok. I had to say yes.
It felt so matter of fact that apart from having the wind knocked out of me, I didn't even question the thought. After regaining my composure, I mentally questioned my sanity. Where did that come from? I am married with 3 kids and this guy is married with two. The idea seems more than just impossible, it seems ridiculous and absurd. I can admit that but I have had this feeling before. Not in this situation but I felt it before. I felt it before I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I was brushing my teeth one morning and I felt the exact feeling and matter of fact thought was, "I'm pregnant with a boy." Since we were not planning on having kids together it seemed absurd too but was dead on accurate. I even know when it happened.
I have experienced dreams that predicted death/change to alarming accuracy. I don't know what to think about this though. What could have caused such a strong feeling of fact about someone I don't even know and honestly wouldn't have even considered my type? I am not planning on going into stalker mode but I can't get that feeling out of my head. The chill bumps come back every time it pops into my head. Am I just crazy?
