By the start of class, please have written in your Macbeth journal, an 8-10-minute response to the following prompt:

Has there ever been a time in your life when someone told you that something improbable would happen and it did?  Did the fact that the event was “predicted” cause you to behave differently than you would have otherwise and make it more likely for the event to occur?  Or did the event simply seem to occur without any assistance from you?

Recall what happened and include your feelings when you heard the event predicted and when it occurred?
