When my aunt was little her friends’ father had died. During his life, the deceased neighbor was known as a nice, good-natured, good-humored family man. When the tragedy struck, the unfortunate children came over to spend the night. My grandmother made the bed, lined up the little kids like sardines and, soon after, they were asleep. Sometime during the night, my aunt awoke. To her horror, she saw the deceased sitting on the edge of the bed, right next to her feet.
When my father was a baby, like the babies do, he enjoyed sleeping in his crib. One day, my grandmother was tending to her bed and also to his crib. Immediately after, she went on to change my father’s dippers. While she was in the midst of this task, her ring slipped off her finger. Not only that she felt the ring slide off, she clearly saw it come off. She can’t recall hearing even the faintest of thuds, but this may have been due to the fact that the ring was light or that it had landed on the bed rather than on the parquet floor. Be that as it may, the ring was never found.
Let me now relay a few interesting ‘adventures’ by the members of my family. Of course, being that I’ve known the people who told me about those adventures my whole life and can discern the truth from embellished tall tales, I vouch that what I will now relay to you were the real experiences by the real people.
Personally, I hardly ever came across an adult who has never - not even once - experienced something weird and inexplicable. Those of you who never experienced anything of sort - do beware, ‘cause you never know… In today’s article I’ll illustrate my own such experience, and also a few additional ones by some people close to me. As (mis)fortune would have it, there aren’t many, so this article probably won’t run to some astronomical lengths. Being that I chose to write along the lines of Forteana and the weird in the world, I felt the need to open up to you - the readers - and tell you about such stuff I myself have experienced or have heard from the people close to me. Their recounts were evaluated through my merciless tests of validity.
