Tom Cruise Clairvoyance

This happened on Saturday, but I just remembered that I wanted to write about it now....

Anyways, while vacuuming I was thinking about how my mom likes to offer slippers to visitors to our house. Personally, I like to go barefoot (I like to feel carpet underneath my toes) and I sometimes think offering slippers to guests is unnecessary. I think it's because in Malaysia when my parents were growing up (and even now) most people wear slippers in the house because somehow the floors get really dirty there. I can attest that even in my grandparent's home to this day, there's always an abundance of slippers to wear and the floor did feel dirty when I walked barefoot on them.

But that's not the point of this post I'm writing about.

As I continued to vacuum, my train of thought somehow wandered to the scene in The Last Samurai where Tom Cruise tracks mud and dirt all over the nice hardwood floor of the Japanese widow's home. And then I remembered how he later learns to take his shoes off before coming into the house. And then I thought about the scene where the youngest son starts making faces at Tom Cruise during dinner. I love that scene because its so cute, and feels real.

I dare you to sip water as you watch this:

If I ever meet Tom Cruise, I think I'd like to try this, or better yet, that's how I'll thank my prospective employer when I go in for my next job interview.

Anyways fast forward a few hours later when I'm flipping channels on TV and what's playing on CBC? Yes, its The Last Samurai. Am I clairvoyant? Definitely not, because I didn't predict it to be playing on TV, I just happened to think about it.

But just in case, I'm going to try and think about foot-long hotdogs with all the trimmings, and crunchy Cheetos all day tomorrow. But according to the my logic, that would mean I would only be seeing these things on TV...

Hmm, I'm going to have to think this through more carefully. But I do like junk food!
