My mom told me a story about something that scared her about 35 years ago in Boston, Ma & I thought I would share it with you all.
Her and her friends were driving around Boston looking for something to do. As they were driving down to an area they didn't really know, they saw a
man walking on the side of the road. He was dressed in crushed velvet clothing with long painted black fingernails and he had his face painted in
black and white, half and half sort of like a medieval jester. My mom passed this man and essentially made a comment of whats with that guy?. My mom
and her friends decided to get a bite to eat and after driving for several miles, they stopped at a restaurant. The restaurant was pretty crowded and
so they were seated at a booth in the back. They ordered their drinks and the waitress brought them. After a couple of minutes, my mom's friends
glass levitated off the table and moved about a foot to the right and was set back down on the table. They all freaked out. They were in mid
conversation about nothing paranormal when it happened and it scared them. About 5 minutes later, the creepy man with his face painted walked into the
restaurant. He immediately came over to my mom's table, ignoring every other table in the place and asked for a ride to the Boston common. My mom
thought it was odd because not many people referred to it as the Boston common. She told the man no.. as she was very creeped out by the site of him.
Her friend offered to pay for a taxi for him if he would give her a bracelet that he was wearing. The painted up man agreed, and they called him a
cab. He went and stood by the door and seemed to be eyeing everyone at the restaurant. A few minutes later, the cab showed up. The man walked over to
my mom and her friends and said thank you. He then turned to my mom and said "Oh, you know how your glass floated off the table a moment ago? Well,
take a look at this." The man showed my mom his ear. His ear was missing a chunk of it, and in the missing section, an earring was floating, not
sustained by anything visible. The man then laughed and walked out of the restaurant. My mom had a very bad feeling from the man and was very scared.
He also was not in the restaurant when the drink floated. She was confused at how he could have this knowledge, and how his earring was just floating
there like magic. My mom left that area that night and went back to her home town. About a year later, her and my dad decided to go back to that
restaurant, on the way home, they saw the same man, dressed the same way... walking down the road. When they saw him, my mom had my dad take an
alternate route home. She doesn't like telling this story because she still fills up with fear when thinking of the man.
So I gotta ask, who do you think he was? Ghost? Magician? Does anyone know the significance of his costume? I would like to know if anyone had any
similar experiences to this. Keep in mind this was approx. 35 years ago.
