My strange occurrence doesn't involve food. A couple of weeks ago I walked into my kitchen, which is right next to the door of my apartment, a little
after I had woken up. I stopped in my tracks because a black tote bag was hanging from the doorknob.
I live alone. I hadn't used the totebag, swag from a former job, in years. I stored it and similar items in a large closet right next to that door. I
seldom use the closet and had to remove most of the items before a major leak in the ceiling was fixed. I don't know that that has anything to do
with anything, except it's not a closet I regularly use and I sometimes forget I even have it!
So, the totebag. My first thought was, has that been hanging there so long that I stopped noticing it? Impossible. It was so wide that it would have
gotten in the way every time I opened and closed the door to my apt.
Inspecting the tote bag further, I noted that only one handle was on the doorknob, and it was twisted once. "They" secured it to the knob and left
the bag open, as if they wanted to load it with items, but nothing was in it.
Had someone entered my apartment? My two locks were both still locked, and if someone had come in and left through the door, they would have needed
the key to lock the deadbolt from the other side, and I had all my keys. (Later I searched the place to make sure someone wasn't hiding somewhere.)
Being on the third floor, the only other way in would be through my balcony's sliding door, which was partly open. My balc looks over an inaccessible
area of patios along the side of our 3-story building. The stairs to the roof are locked. If someone had gotten up there, dropped down to my balcony
(tricky because it doesn't project much past the roofline), opened the screen, and tromped through my living room, which at the time was like an
obstacle course, I can't imagine I would have slept through it. I had extra furniture in there and I could barely make it through in the daytime
without knocking something over. There were no foot marks or leaves from the balcony and all of my obstacles were in place.
A few other weird things happened over the next few days. The next morning I turned on my computer monitor, and a program I never use was on the
screen. Then when I came home from an errand about 8 pages I had sent to my printer from my laptop months before, which had never printed for some
reason, were sitting in the printer output tray. They never had shown up in the printer queue; I thought my network needed fixing but I now have no
prob printing from my laptop.
My sister keeps saying I must have walked in my sleep, but I think even she knows that is unlikely. I had one or two minor events when I was in third
grade, just getting out of bed and going back, nothing prolonged or complicated, and I'm not on any medication. Although I realize I wouldn't
necessarily know it if I did, I think I might have *some* recognition once I saw the tote bag. I'm not that heavy of a sleeper.
I have had weird things happen in the past, such as my car's retractable lights going up and then, on command, going down, when the car was turned
off, a year after they had been disconnected from the motor! That was 8-9 years ago, after the death of my ex-boyfriend. He loved messing with people
in real life, and his family experiences similar unexplainable events to this day, but mine ended pretty soon afterward. I wonder what possible
message he or anyone else could be trying to send with these seemingly random events.
Also I had a weird experience decades ago when I woke up to notice an electric fan had stopped, and I felt electric shock running through my body. I
actually thought I was going to die, but it stopped eventually and the fan turned back on.
