"So I guess the fortune teller's right..."

I don't believe in superstitions or psychics, but this is a true story. Months ago when I was traveling to Vietnam for an engagement party I met a relative for the first time in my life. Visiting him for the first time in my life he already knew who I was, the year I was born, the year my parents and siblings were born, and their ages! Very impressive for a veteran that is in his 70s, and with a serious head injuries during the VN War that is still affecting him to this day. The man's beard and hair was as white as Santa Clause, but his mind is as sharp as any person in his/her prime. The old man said a lot of impressive things while chatting with my parents and I. He then grasped my hand, smiled, and said "there is good news coming beginning at this new year." "This year" meaning the leap year calendar. February 3rd is the new year. The old man said this a little over four months ago. I had no clue what that could be, but its doesn't matter. Today, I woke up from a nap and got a text from USCIS that stated my I-129F Petition has been approved. Coincidence or pure luck? It doesn't matter. Good news are welcomed. :)

Ha ha. He is not that creepy type with the crystal ball or the skulls. He was just a really articulate and wise old man. I was really impressed with how he remember all our birth dates and ages exactly as they were. He was a nice guy that we had a good conversation with. He didn't sit there and made predictions all day and go crazy like some psychics are :). That was the only "prediction" he made.
