I wonder about this one.  We would say, "I just finished a history lesson,
it was an historic occasion.  It was about a historic meeting between two
people."

I wonder if there are other H words which do weird things.  It may be that
historic lets the word after it choose the a/an...  It could have
something to do with being the subject/adjective, but neither of those fit
up there.  The last phrase could probably do as well with an an or an a.

Several online english resources, but I haven't seen a mention of a/an
anywhere...
