TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: An ironic story of coincidence, connection, and a random nightstand

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: An ironic story of coincidence, connection, and a random nightstand

This story has it all. Irony, coincidence, connections and how you just never know when something is going to come back into your life in the most random of ways.

A woman in San Diego recently bought an old nightstand at a thrift store. When she got it home she found a note inside one of the drawers that looked like a child’s handwriting. It had phone numbers and a name written on it. One of the numbers was her parents’ old house PHONE NUMBER and her mom’s cell number from 15 years ago! She thought that was odd so started to research the name on Facebook. She eventually figured out that it was her sister’s friend’s nightstand when they were a kid. How funny it is that!?

She made a TikTok video of the whole thing which as started to go viral.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Where was the famous sky & grass Windows XP desktop photo taken?

You probably used to stare at it every day when you got to work. That default desktop photo on Windows XP. You know the one… with the sky and grass. But where was the actual photo taken?

The famous photo is from Napa Valley, California. The funny part is that only looks like it does in the photo because an insect infestation had wiped out all of the grapevines in the area. Leaving that sprawling grass look.
