I was washing my hands under the bathroom faucet a few days ago and turned on the warm water on as well as the cold water (i usually wash my hands in cold water).....well, I began soaping up my hands and really focused on the water and the soap in my hands and how it felt.....and all of the sudden I got this memory come over me.....(it was very quick but very familiar) it was of a little boy smiling, I could actually see him in my mind very clearly. At that one moment, I felt like I knew the little boy my whole life....a very familial sense, almost nostalgic. I guess when I think of Dejavu I always thought the moment had to be pivotal or very important and now I believe sometimes its meant for us to remember certian things and events.
I had a similar experience once when i was washing my hands!! HA! weird... only mine wasn't of a little boy, it was of my mom. i was realizing that my hands looked just like my moms. then i looked in the mirror and saw myself as my mom and dad's daughter, i could see both of them in my reflection. then i thought about how i was growing up, and recognized how i was like both of them..... it was really a surprising and intense feeling. i dont know if that had anything to do with deja vu though for me, it was jsut weird and your story reminded me of it. =P
