100% true, 0% fictionalization, 0% hyperbole. After a week long curiosity and desire for experimentation, I decided to bake some cookies from scratch. After buying the requisite ingredients, on Sunday 10/2/11, I did the deed. I'd never baked anything (other than pizza) and I'm not exactly fond of cooking, so it was a unique situation to say the least, especially on football Sunday. Cookies turned out pretty well and I'd made enough to munch on for the next couple of days. In the early morning hours of 10/4/11, before the start of the "Let's Talk iPhone" event, I was casually messing around with my Siri app, which I'd had for several months. "Remind me to buy cookies at 5PM tomorrow", I said. To the best of my recollection, despite having messed around with the app a couple of times before, that was the first and only reminder I had ever set on it. Later that day, the app stopped working completely. It appears Apple had disabled it soon after the event. On the evening of 10/5/11, right before the 5PM newscast came on, I put down my iPad, and ran to the kitchen to grab a cookie from the batch I'd made. There were two left. As I grabbed and bit into one, I could hear the anchor starting in the other room: "We have breaking news to report to you tonight. We've just received news that Steve Jobs, founder and CEO of Apple, has died". In utter shock, I ran to the TV, picked up my iPhone, hit the Home button to unlock, and saw the reminder I had long forgotten: "Buy cookies". As long as I live, I'll probably never know the full meaning of that moment, but I'll never forget it either. What does it mean? Coincidence? Fate? Just making something out of nothing? I won't bore you with my theories, but throughout the course of my life, I have been stupefied and mystified by similarly mysterious incidents, as I'm sure we all have. One day, in one brilliant flash of omniscient clarity, it will all make prefect sense. And it will be perfect and it will be simple. I hope.
