Miller explains it all.
Okay, this was weird. A few days ago, I posted one of my grandparents' wedding photos, which was among the many things we were going through this week. I captioned it with the date, August 17, 1947. I also have mentioned that I recieved my laserdisc of Eddie Murphy's Delirious the next day. Now... on the back of the dust jacket, it mentions that Murphy's concert performance was recorded in August of 1983. At one point in the program, he asks the audience what the date is. They all shout out that it is the seventeenth.
Delirious was recorded in the evening of my grandparent's 36th wedding anniversary.
Lattice of coincidence, right?
