Creepy: a student’s premonition

My stepfather taught in a Catholic high school, and he’s also an artist. He encouraged his students to draw on the backs of their test papers if they finished early, and he’d photocopy the interesting ones.

After 9/11/2001, he went back into this file of photocopied drawings and found this. He looked up the student afterward fully expecting to find the student had died on 9/11, but apparently he was alive and well. I don’t know if my stepdad ever contacted him about this drawing or whether it was a real premonition.

    Creepy is right. That’s down-right spooky.

    Creepy, indeed.

    I wonder if the date was inspired by “2001: A Space Odyssey”?

    The student’s name wasn’t “Osama”, was it? I don’t think I have to tell you that this kind of thing is definitely for real (the premonition thing).
