Believe ESP

Yesterday morning i got a text message from my brother saying "baby's coming today" - his wife, 9 mo pregs, was expecting all week/end. Then I became engulfed in a shit storm of work and totally forgot about it. Never got a call either, which probably didn't help.

I can't remember exactly when, but around 8 or 9 pm I was sitting on the couch watching TV, and randomly the thought came back into my head. I didn't hear anything from my family all day. I immediately called my brother up, no answer. i called my mom, and she answered. The baby was born just minutes before.

My mom didn't know if it was a boy or girl... they were waiting till birth to be surprised, and my brother wasn't telling my parents until they got into the room. Brother calls back, it's a boy.

Let's put this into perspective. The kid's a dude. The name's Jacob. I was sitting next to roommate, Jacob. We were watching Jacob's Ladder. I had a moment minutes after the kid's birth that made me call my brother/family.

fuck yall. Paranormal. Extrasensory. Space. Extraterrestrial. shit, dudes, its real.
