I have had an experience like this many years ago, and it was only seeing this thread that has brought the memory of it back to me.
I was out on a work night out and we had just finished having a meal together. I had had a couple of drinks but certainly wasn't drunk as the night
was still young. We had decided to go on to a local wine bar and then on to a nightclub much later in the evening. I had persuaded one of my work
mates not to go home early as planned and to come with us to the wine bar. My work mate said he would call his wife to tell her he was going to be
home late. Since he had very little credit on his mobile. I passed him my mobile as I had unlimited minutes.
As we were walking down towards the wine bar, it started to thunder and begin lashing down with heavy rain. At this point, we all began to run down
the road, my mate was still chatting to his wife on my phone. All I can remember is a sudden very bright flash, almost like lightning going right off
in my face, it was blinding, and I stopped running. I don't know what happened next, but when I opened my eyes we were near the wine bar. Everybody
was chatting and being jovial as if nothing had happened. The rain had stopped and the storm seemed to have passed. I was totally confused and trying
to process how we had got across town in the blink of an eye. The wine bar was a good ten minutes walk from where the restaurant had been, yet here we
were about to go inside. It was like I had been snatched from reality and then popped back in. Everything seemed hazy and a bit unreal until I
regained my focus.
I turned to my mate and asked him for my phone back. He looked at me stupid and declared that he had given me my phone back ten minutes ago. He made a
joke about how many beers had I sunk at the restaurant? I felt in my coat pocket and sure enough, the phone was there. I know this sounds crazy, but i
have no recollection of that walk to the wine bar, no memory of him giving me the phone back, and despite the jokes my mate made, I definitely was not
drunk. Has anybody had this before? Can anybody explain what may have happened in that time period? But most importantly, how did I forget this even
happened until now?
