Did you have a teddy bear?

Did you have a teddy bear?

One Friday evening my wife, Helen, and I were talking about our childhood. She asked me what my teddy bear was like. That simple question lead to a mindblowing experience.

I told her that I didn't believe that I had a teddy bear when I was a kid. "You must have. All kids have a teddy bear". So I decided to call my sister, Joy, in the UK and ask her if she remembered. I tried three times, but she didn't answer her phone. The next morning, she phoned me and said that she was worried that something was wrong as she had three missed calls. I settled her mind and told her why I had tried to phone.

It turned out that while I was trying to call her, she was at a dance, had bought a raffle ticket and won a prize. The prize was teddy bear! When she went up to collect her prize, she said to the audience "You know, this is the first teddy bear that I have ever owned!".

How's that for telepathy?
