American Heavy Metal

A few months ago, I wrote about “synchronicity”.  If you aren’t familiar with the word, here’s the definition:

….an apparently meaningful coincidence in time of two or more similar or  identical events 

Motor Man and I experienced a synchronicity a couple of weeks ago. We were out of town and had stopped at an Applebee’s for dinner.

Hanging on the wall beside the table where the hostess seated us was a picture of a Small Block Chevrolet Engine. My in-house engine expert tells me that this is a highly modified race engine.

It was almost impossible to get a good photo with all the lights and reflections. But at the top of the picture are the words “American Heavy Metal”.

And I had to wonder: what are the chances of Motor Man going into a restaurant and being seated beside a framed picture of a race engine?

Synchronicity indeed.
