Ever run into things that pop right out of a recent novel you read?

I made a quick comment yesterday about Stephen King’s novella Secret Window, Secret Garden.  Anyone familiar with the story (even the movie) knows it’s about a writer who answers the door one morning to a fellow who accuses him of plagarism.  That fellow is John Shooter, brought to wonderful life by John Turturro in the film.  This guy Shooter wears a black felt Amish hat, you know, and like the shark fin in Jaws, when Shooter’s hat turns up, trouble follows close behind.

Sometimes I man a desk at work, and under that desk we keep a little lost and found tray.  A gentleman came up yesterday to drop off an item he found lying in the lobby.  “Looks like someone left this behind,” he said, and no kidding, he handed me a black felt hat to toss into the tray.

Maybe Shooter will come by to pick it up later.
