I am alone at work reading this and I am totally freaked out!! I had to turn on the radio! *deep breaths*
I work in a used bookstore located in a run down old Victorian house that has seen many uses and tenants over the past century or so. There is definitely at least one ghost here, probably more. One time a few years ago, my co-worker David and I were looking for a book someone had ordered, with no luck. (This happens quite frequently in big, disorganized used bookstores like ours.
) He was at one end of the aisle and I was at the other, and we were saying how if we didn't find the book by the end of the day we would contact the customer and cancel the order. At that moment a book fell off the shelf onto the floor and it was the exact book we were looking for. These books are lined up spines facing out like at the library and there is no way it could have just fallen off all by itself. David and I just looked at each other like
! There have been many weird incidents over the past 5 years I have worked here - like, I am getting ready to close the store and hear footsteps upstairs, so I go up to tell the customer we are closing and there is nobody there. Sometimes I get a horrible feeling upstairs like someone is standing right behind me, about to touch me. Downstairs seems OK but the upstairs is a bit sketchy.
Other weird stories: one time I was lying on the couch in my living room reading a book. The TV was off. Suddenly I heard a babble of voices coming from the TV. It started off quiet but quickly got loud, went on for about 15 seconds and then faded away again. I couldn't make out what they were saying. It really freaked me out. While we were living in this same apartment we had a lot of trouble with the TV. It used to turn on and off spontaneously, also change channels. We have moved since and have the same TV and it doesn't do it anymore.
My great-grandmother died 2 months before I was born. I was a few weeks old and my mom said she woke up in the middle of the night and went into my room to check on me. My g-gmother was standing over my crib, looking down at me. When my mom came in she turned around and smiled at her and said I was beautiful, and disappeared.
Cole has had a few times when he was looking and pointing at apparently nothing. It always freaked me out a little but I chalked it up to baby weirdness.
Who knows, maybe he's seeing ghosts. I guess they're friendly because we aren't bothered by them - I've lived in the house for over 2 years and haven't noticed anything unusual.
Although - I hear the faint radio-or-TV sounds too, always late at night when everything is quiet. I always figured it was my fillings picking up a station or something. It is annoying - it's just loud enough for me to notice it but not loud enough for me to understand what is being said. Sometimes it seems like the same song is being played for 20 minutes.
: Weird, huh?
