Adrian Trotman and his wife, Jen, were walking their dog Sunday when they stumbled upon something potentially life-changing.
It was a Coca-Cola bottle, couched in the sand along Port Melbourne Beach in Australia, and held a note inside. The note was written on a page ripped from a diary or personal organizer dated 2013 and contained an inspiring message.
Message in a bottle of Coke washed up on a Melbourne beach: Adrian Trotman, 30, was walking his dog on Port Me... http://t.co/o0Eb8Bc2EX— Interesting News (@interestinews) June 29, 2015
This is your fate, it's your mission to change life as you know it.
Do something amazing, something you are too scared to do.
Why not? Life's short.
Once you have decided, leave this note for someone else to find.
It wasn't immediately clear when the note was written or how long it had been there. And when asked if there was anything to indicate who or what Petreeza is, Trotman responded, "No, no, nothing at all."
"It was lying on the sand. It was a bit dredged, a bit washed up. I just spotted inside and it looked like it was rolled up so it caught my eye," Trotman told Australia's 3AW Breakfast radio program.
Despite the mystery of where the note originated, Trotman said he intends to take what it said seriously. Although he isn't planning on doing anything drastic, he does want to think of something to do that will "test" him, something like running a marathon, he said.
It's not clear whether Trotman plans to leave the bottle for someone once he decides what he'll do, as the note instructs those who find it.
