Reading a word and hearing it at the same time.

Is it just me? It’s happened just now. DH is listening to the Line of Duty Johnson interview on his iPad. But, as I read a word on here the same word was spoken on the iPad. It happens all the time and the words are often unusual albeit probably being topical. Maybe it’s because I tend to have something on in the background when I’m reading.

I am very conscious of the same thing. It happens several times a week to me. smile

Looks like it’s just us. Do you think we have magic powers!

It's happened to me, but not often.

I happens to me quite often, Maybee, and they're not words like the or and.

In fact, I commented on it earlier today!

I’ve had it happened to me as well. It happens quite a lot and I remarked on it yesterday as well!

It happens to me , and its not just regularly used words. For instance, I could be reading/ thinking something about a wedding and there on the news, or on TV, the word ‘wedding’ will come up.

I might start writing them down. A pattern might form. Or a message from aliens….

I think it's quite common.

Oh it’s funny that you should have brought this up. I find it happens quite a lot and, as someone said, it’s often fairly unusual words too. How interesting!
