Two weird things keep reoccurring in my life Odours or smells remind me of a certain place or event from years gone by. I will briefly remember somebody from a long time ago and bump into them within a matter of weeks or days. Recently was shopping in town and walked past a local café and the smell coming from inside the door reminded me instantaneously of an arcade/museum that used to be up the road from my where I then lived like 10-15 years ago and I was very young as well. I think the smell I remember was of chips/fries and something else which had vanilla included. This happens to me quite often. The chances of me picking somebody at random and bumping into them are slim but it happens if I have a deja vu moment and remember an old friend and then out of the blue they will add me on facebook or my mum will ask me to guess who she saw whilst shopping that day, the parent/s of the person I was thinking about. Or either I bump into them and remember them on the spot and say hi to them or vice versa. Weird?
