The Engagement Announcement

Now and then I’ll come across a TWIDDER that involves the experiencer reading a newspaper or other publication that has yet to come out.  Definitely a Forward to the Future spacetime slip.  (See original posting at

In Florida on May 13, a woman bank teller greeted a customer she had known for quite some time with a congratulations. She had seen the article about his daughter’s engagement in the May 9 edition of the Sunday paper. She even remarked at what a lovely photo it was of his daughter that accompanied the announcement.images
One small problem: there was no such announcement. Not yet. The announcement did not actually appear in the paper until May 23. Yet the woman was able to describe the man’s daughter exactly from the photo she had seen (she said she did not even know that he had a daughter until she saw the announcement) as well as the precise placement of the article in the paper — all of which came to pass ten days later on May 23.
