Above....Amnislupus brings ups many of the points I wanted to illustrate in my reply. With that said....
I don't feel I jumped to this conclusion very quickly. Trust me when I say, I've thought of everything you are suggesting. I've stewed on the
situation for the past few years. Let me say I am a person of logic. I admit, since childhood, I've searched for a real UFO sighting, but as a
logical person, I was always able to dismiss anything strange.
I agree that the mind can be fooled upon waking from a deep sleep. Its not out of the realm possibility. I know for a fact, though, that the door
was locked. We wouldn't have left the chair sitting in the way in the kitchen as the house was small and you just didn't block the walkways. And
the lid to the tin was secured tightly. Something change the way we left all of those things.
I don't feel my wife would have jumped to such an outlandish conclusion had the experience not prompted such. She is a pretty logical person as
well. And I ran out of the house almost immediately, in hot pursuit. My plan was to hand deliver an a** beating to a 'real person', whom I assumed
could have been observed leaving the property. I used my big mag light, the kind that can double as a weapon. It easily lit the back yard and made
it very clear that no one was in the front either. It also allowed me to notice I had left footprints in the dew. The only footprints as a matter of
fact. And I searched for more because that would have been a clear way to find where 'they' ran off to. That was one of the more puzzling parts of
I can't say for sure it was an 'Alien' But when alien makes the most sense, what do you do?
I found no evidence that suggested a human intruder other than the fact that claiming 'alien' is a bit looney in some peoples eyes.
I would rather it have been a human. Would be easier to deal with. IMO.
And let me clarify. The tin was not a coffee can. It was an old decorative tin, probably antique. The lid and container had large wide threads and
the lid was slightly misshapen. Thats what cause the bad noise when trying to remove or close the lid. It couldn't be done in silence. I have no
doubt my wife would have woken to this sound. And it would be a shock to hear it in the middle of the night knowing what it took to open the
Its normal place was at the back of the fridge. On that night, however, it was sitting against the wall at the back of the coffee table, which was
also not in its normal place. Not to mention it was literally pitch black in our house.
No one new of our exact location except grandmother in law, and maybe my boss however I doubt he new the exact location as he only had our mailing
address from my tax info. And no one came to our house in those first few years we were there. I struggle to see how an random intruder would have
noticed the tin or even why a burglar would be interested in it, given the electronics and power tools that were readily available and easier to get
None of it made sense. Thats why its bothered me for so long.
And as for my daughters claims....
Yes, she could have over heard us talking that next morning. She could have even made it all up. When she came out of her room we stopped our
discussion, not wanting to scare her. When I asked her how she slept, I expected her to say, I slept good. It was a shock to hear her real response,
and it was out of character for her to say something like that. After words I tried to get as much detail out of a three year old as I could.
Limited but still something at least.
I really feel like I exhausted all logic when trying to figure out the situation, even when explaining it to myself. I really didn't 'want' to
say it was an alien or spirit, but it being a person just does fit. A person, in that situation, would have been caught, IMO, and would have been in
a world of hurt.
Thank you for your post and for the challenge! If I failed to cover anything of importance, let me know. Maybe tonight, away from the madness of
work, my mind will be clear enough to address your questions better.
