Karma Police

I'm not sure if I believe in signs and superstitions and karma. Well, I definitely do not believe in superstitions as those are completely irrational. However, I do always kiss the ceiling when I drive through a yellow light and I always make a wish when I see a shooting star. I like to think that those are just reminders to think positively as opposed to wishing for something to happen. Sometimes I don't want to "jinx" us at work and say something like, "It's not crowded!", but that is such a silly thought-like my saying that will cause the gates to open and the people to flood in.

Signs are what tend to make me stop and furrow my brow in thought. And what do I really mean by "signs" anyway? It's so vague, which is maybe why they work out so well. It's like when you realize you and your best friend both went to the same camp and kids and even though you didn't know each other then, you eventually met. It's like it was meant to be. Or when you're late and running frantically and then cross paths with your crush-helllooo, what a sign! It's just when things work out, or something happens that could be a coincidence, but the circumstances make it more meaningful.


Anyway, after all of that, I think it was a sign.

I think that's what makes signs to convenient, you know?

I like to believe in signs. I think it's just a sweeter form of hope.
