Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of comments on old posts and feeling a little guilty because it has been so long since I have posted. Common topics seems to focus on disappearing objects and black floating orbs. But, that’s not why I’m stopping by tonight. I had a very unsettling event today and wanted to share it with you.
We have had a history of unusual things happening in this home. A few weeks ago, my lamp came on by itself in the middle of the night twice in one week – but has not done so again since. The motion detector light in the hallway comes on frequently when no one is around and there are always pops and sounds in the kitchen that we cannot explain. Those things are easy to rationalize. They could, after all, be from nearly anything (at least that is what we tell ourselves).
This afternoon I was sitting at my computer editing photos when suddenly, out of seemingly nowhere, a loud pop sounded right in my right ear. It was so loud that I jumped up from the chair and yelled to my husband, the skeptic. It sounded electrical and I fully expected something to burst into flames. There was absolutely nothing there. Hubby rushed in, as he heard it from the living room, but we couldn’t find anything to cause the sound. The only electrical devices at my desk are the computer and a desk lamp — neither of which show any sign of a problem.
To say I was not alarmed would be lying. I had goosebumps for hours. Even the skeptic has mentioned it a few times and is puzzled over what it could have been. I can’t say for sure that the sound I heard was paranormal. We may discover a logical explanation for it, but I can’t imagine what that might be. Until then, I will likely be looking over my shoulder whenever I sit down to my computer.
