I've always believed there are unexplainable things in the world, in the universe. Things we don't understand. Maybe it figures into why I love to read paranormal stuff but it fascinates me to think of other worlds and mysterious peoples who can do extraordinary things.
Over the years, I've become addicted to shows like A Haunting and Ghosthunters. There are others out there and I'll watch them too, if I stumble across them while channel surfing. Odd that I don't really care for horror stories or movies but I can't stop watching this stuff and thinking...what if? Stories about the hieroglyphyics on Egyptian pyramids, the faery fields of Ireland keep me spellbound but I've never actually HAD a paranormal experience.
My daughter and I took at trip to Lubbock, Texas this weekend to see my son who has a house there with two other guys. His roommates were off visiting family and he entertained us with a fun few days of Olympics-watching, catching up and dining out. Since the other guys were gone, we split up the bedrooms and everything was cool in the sleeping department. My daughter slept in one of the guys' vacated rooms. The next morning we were hanging out, drinking coffee and my son and I noticed she was really quiet. I asked her how she slept and she looked down then up and very seriously said. "Not very well." She shook her head a little and said. "I heard laughing. I heard a girl laughing." She was serious, deadly serious and went on to say..."I bumped my elbow on the wall and I heard her." My daughter said she sounded very young and then she heard the laugher again some time later. My son's eyes went round and he said, I can't believe it. I just can't believe it. He went on to tell us that his roommate said his room was haunted and he often hears a young girl giggling. The other guys always laughed it off, thinking it was just his imagination but now he believes. My daughter is a very serious natured girl and wouldn't make something like this up. Needless to say, we didn't sleep very well the following night although I believe this spirit is young, playful, and means no harm. Still, it was pretty creepy.
Do you have a ghost story to tell? A real life experience that some might find unbelievable? I'd be interested to hear it.
