An Omen?

I was supposed to go to LA this past weekend but the damn site where my wisdom tooth was removed got infected. The poor on-call oral surgeon spent part of his late Friday afternoon pulling out about three full syringes worth of gunk from the right side of my face. It looked like I was storing cream of broccoli soup where my mandibular third molar used to be. I was super bummed that I couldn’t come down because there were people I really wanted to see and food I really wanted to eat.

But then I found out that had I gone down on Friday night I probably would have been turned back because of some crazy accident on I5. A bunch of cars were involved, a bunch of people died, and that part of the interstate probably won't reopen until Wednesday. Who knows, I coulda been involved in that accident! Was it an omen? Sure I’ll call it an omen. Just like how Urim and Thummim convinced Santiago to journey to the oasis, tooth #31 and hole #32 convinced me to stay home. So now I’m wondering if this omen was simply to avoid danger, or a sign of something even greater. Hmm…
