        This happened yesterday.

        I was outside having a ciggy (stopped smoking in the house because of the awful smell) and I saw 6 magpies flying together.  Seeing this got me thinking about the nursery rhyme and I really thought that 6 magpies was "make a wish".  So I made a wish.

        Last night I met up with a friend to go dancing and I explained about the 6 magpies I had seen, told her my thoughts about the "wish" and she just looked at me with amazement.  I was driving at the time and I just kept looking at her briefly and looking back at the road saying "what"...."what".

        She had walked her dog earlier and she also saw 6 magpies and she also thought 6 was for a wish.  She had exactly the same thoughts as me.  A very strange coincidence indeed.

        Alas, it's not 6 for a wish, it's 6 for gold!

        Here is the most commonly known rhyme

           One for sorrow
           Two for joy
           Three for a girl
           Four for a boy
           Five for silver
           Six for gold
           Seven for a secret, never to be told
           Eight for a wish
           Nine for a kiss
           Ten for a bird you must not miss

        Looks like we should have seen 8 magpies.

        Have you had any strange coincidences recently or in the past?

            Keep looking Blueday, for the other two. Some days are diamonds, some days are gold. I would think it's still all good. Maybe they have smaller groups now for safety? Hope your wish comes true.  Yesterday I could have made a wish when after a tear or so I had mused over getting a ramekin unstuck from coffee cup. I had tried all ways to get it out. I tried again with a thin knife. I couldn't believe it came out and without stabbing myself. Different from your story but both are special.

        That's touching Blue  :'(  indeed keep look for the other two.    :-bd

        Years ago a relative told me not to leave at that moment, but to wait 30 seconds, then go (to run an errand).  As I was passing by one the intersections there was a freak accident that just happened.  A semi looks like had toppled over a motorcycle as it was trying to turn on an inclined street.  The ambulance was racing to take the injured cyclist to the hospital.  I shudder to think what would have happened had I been there any sooner.

        Oh wow...I think it was a faith more than a coincident,blue.
        you know...sometimes we are often amazed by how much friends are alike and think like each other.
        Thank you for the rhyme! I have never heard of this one before and now I know what I will be doing when I see magpies flying... grin

        I love these kind of stories and i believe there is a definite connection tween you and your friend blue. It just defies all reasoning and explanation to be anything else. It is absolutely adorable how the both of you saw and thought the same thing.

        Joseph, wow you are very lucky. I also had a premonition similar to that, although no one warned me.

        I was coming home from work and every day i would take the same route home. One day something told me to take a detour. I tried to dismiss it but couldn't. So i said to myself what the heck i will take the scenic route. Mind you i had no fear of some impending doom if i didn't take this route.It just seemed though every time i ignored my gut feeling it would return stronger.

        Now this is the crazy part. When i came back up on the main road where i originally take home, there was a huge accident. It just happened and police had not even arrived yet. 

        Coincidental? I like to think not!

        They don't have to be flying - just together.

        Thanks Lips. We both wished for the same thing too.

        Thank goodness you listened to your gut. Who knows what could have happened. Very spooky indeed.
