Thoughts and words are things, too.

You really do have to be careful what you say. An offhand comment can come true faster than you can blink.

Last week we had a resident who insisted on walking around when they really aren't able to do so without help. We spent several discussions last week talking about how they were going to break a leg or something before it was all over. Now they're in surgery after taking a bad fall.

Now, you may say that we were just predicting the obvious. Still, I wonder if our talk calls things into being that might not have been created otherwise.
