i had something like this happen a couple of times in my life too. i just raise my hand up for something and my two fingers close for some reason i did, and coincidentally a fly gets caught between my fingers! was very coincidental was like a one in a billion chance of such thing happening.
on another unrelated note, it happened again long ago when i had an action figure collection, and they were all on my window sill, and one of them fell down to my bed below 3 feet, and it landed square on its feet! on the mattress! and it wasnt like a plank under its feet like a toy plastic army soldier would have but just one of those action figures like gi joe or star wars or something. i called my brother in to have him look at what fantastical thing just happened but he never believed me, he always thinks i just placed it there.
