Mind you, I don't normally post in this forum, or even read the threads here. I consider myself a very practical person, and usually dismiss any
paranormal explination. Honestly I'm a debunker in most cases, but something very strange happened in my house the other night, and I want to see if
this has ever happened to anyone else.
No alcohol nor mind altering substances were involved.
At roughly 9-10pm Wednesday night, whilst I was doing dishes my roommate (at the kitchen table looking over our monthly bills/expenses) and I (his
wife and my girlfriend were on the computer) both saw something out of the corner of our eyes and wheeled to look down the hallway to see a man sized
shadow move into my roomate's bedroom. We both looked at each other and simultaniously said "What the (explative deleted) was that?" Thinking it
was an intruder I grabbed the baseball bat I keep next to my computer desk (near the front door) and we slowly went into the bedroom with full intent
expecting to see a crackhead trying to rob us. Nothing.
We checked the closet, the other rooms (my son was asleep across the hallway), checked the windows and doors. Eveything was closed and locked, even
if it was an intruder, they could not have locked the window behind him/her. I dismissed it as us both being tired and stressed went back to doing
dishes and listening to my iPod. Nothing special happened after that, my roomies went to bed, I turned off the lights, double checked the locks on
the front and back door, and headed to bed. My girlfriend put in a movie (Cloverfield, good special effects but as a survivalist, I think the main
character was an idiot for doing what he did). I was alseep at this point, but as my girlfriend recounts, she went out and double checked the locks
once more, and came to bed.
I had a sleep paralysis episode that night, I do not recall what time it was, as I am disoriented both during and after. When I have an SP episode, I
just go back to sleep, I've been having them off and on for years, and my doctor said it was nothing to worry about. So I don't worry, I'm a
For this event I was asleep, I did not wake up, and my girlfriend tried to wake me up, and I sat up, mumbled something and went right back to bed
(very common for me, has made me late for work a couple of times, when I'm sleeping, I'm sleeping and no one can change that).
This is per my roomate and my girlfriend: At 2:35 every light in the house came on. All of the switches were in the on position. My room, my
roomates' room, my childs room, living, dining, front and back porch lights, laundry room, EVERY light. Lights that we didn't even know existed (we
moved into this house about 3 months ago). This woke my girlfriend, my roomate, and my son up, both my roomate's wife and I were asleep (she is a
heavy sleeper too). They met up in the living room, both armed ready to disable the crackhead that apparently had hidden very well when my roomate
and I looked that evening. And again found nothing. All door and windows were closed and locked.
My roomate stayed up the rest of the night at the computer with a broadsword next to him, and he went to bed after I had gotten up for work.
So there is the story, has anyone else had experiances like this and what the heck could have done that. Some explinations that I have skeptically
come up with was sleepwalking or my son (he's very little) climbing out of his crib and sneaking around the house turning on all the rooms and then
climbing back into his crib, which is not logical in the least.
My roomie (who is a believer) suggested it might have been a ghost, shadowperson, fairies, or aliens (but I think he just said that to boog me out,
since I can't watch anything with those short almond eye guys in it, scarey stuff).
Give me some feedback, skeptics and believers both. What the heck was that?
