Hello! The post on "time loss" caught my attention, as I had a weird experience about two weeks ago. I wouldn't really call it "time loss" as
Scorchio123 experienced it...maybe more like "disappearance" or something...but the words "time loss" did remind me of this strange experience of
My husband and I stayed a night at another couple's home that they had just moved into a week before. We slept in a sparsely furnished area of the
The next morning, my husband and I got into a disagreement about something silly, just before he left with his pal to go to the store. I decided to
go back downstairs and take a nap and try to cool off. It took me awhile to fall asleep as there were other people upstairs and they were not quiet,
esp. kids on hardwood floors directly above me!
I heard my husband and his friend return from the store. Twice, as I lay there trying to drift off to sleep, I thought I heard the basement door at
the top of the steps open and someone start to come down. Both times I turned over to see who it was, expecting my husband. No one was there.
Finally, I fell asleep. About 2 hrs. later, I went upstairs to see what everyone was up to. My husband and a few others had left for a boat ride.
When he returned, we left for home. On the way, he asked me where I had been. I told him I had been in the basement sleeping. He told me I had not
been down there. That he had gone down when he returned from his trip to the store (to see if I wanted lunch) and I had not been there. He said he
had walked to the bed and lifted the covers and it was empty. He said someone else had gone down to go through the back door to the backyard, and
that person had not seen me, either. He then left for a boat ride assuming I was still mad and was in one of the bedrooms upstairs.
I thought that was the end of the story, but the next night, my husband brought it up again. He was (and still is) very serious and adamant that I
was not there, that he walked right to the bed, pulled the blankets up, and it was empty.
I am very serious and adamant that I WAS there, as I NEVER left the bed the whole time between him leaving for the store and returning, and leaving
again for his boat ride...not once hearing him or anyone else come downstairs for any reason. I am a light sleeper, esp. in a house I don't know
well, with a lot of commotion just above me.
We both are very curious about this...while he says he wants to believe me, he still thinks I up and left for awhile to make him wonder, because I had
been peeved at him, although I have never done that type of thing before. And I am frustrated that he would think that. There's no reason for him to
say I wasn't there if I really was. There's no way I would get up and, say, wander a neighborhood that I've never been to before, and then lie
about it to make him mad. That's just childish, and I don't play like that.
We've never been in a situation like this where we are accusing eachother of being deceitful or exaggerating, but that's almost what it has come to.
The whole thing would almost be laughable if it wasn't so strange, and if we both weren't so serious on where we stand on the issue.
Not only is it just freaky, but it has caused a bit of a rift between us. We haven't talked about it in a few days, as we've agreed to drop it
without any answers, but I am still totally confused as to what to think!
Anyone have any ideas?
