I have no idea what this is, or what caused it, but yes, we have had objects simply disappear. One time, it was food.
First, we don't have mice, or rats, or scavenging black bears in our house. And no cat to jump up and mess with stuff on the counter tops in the
kitchen. My husband and I live here by ourselves. Doors all locked. No kids. No people other than us had a key to the house. We did have a dog,
but a little old one who could barely jump up onto a couch, let alone get up to the kitchen counter. That's to eliminate those theories.
My husband has opened a big bag of chocolate covered coffee beans. He offered me some, but it was late and those things make me jittery, so as much
as i like them, I passed. When I came down the next morning to make coffee, (Yes, we live a caffeine-rich life) I noticed the empty bag on the
countertop. I looked around and saw one bean on the floor, but that was it. It was remarkable, because it had been a big bag, and it was empty. I
also thought it odd that my husband didn't throw the bag away because he is pretty neat.
He came down later and asked if I had eaten all the beans. I said, "Very funny." So, for at least a while, we both thought the other had eaten a
huge quantity of them. Later, when one of us brought it up, he told me he had put the bag mostly full of beans, on the counter for me to find in the
The dog did not do it. She slept in our bed and didn't go on any midnight wanders. And if she had jumped down from the bed, one of us would have
needed to lift her back up. So, she was not guilty.
So, something ate maybe 2 cups of high test coffee dipped in chocolate. If it was a ghost, it got a buzz. We never found any explanation.
I'd still be scratching my head, but it appears we do have some other paranormal stuff going on here, so I'm keeping an open mind.
Another odd one. My husband was cleaning out his closet and sorting through some clothing and things. He found an old CD of defunct software on the
floor when he was about to hang up some clothing. Since his one arm was busy holding a stack of clothing, he picked it up and absent mindedly tossed
it toward the room door where he intended to go and pick it up and throw it away just as soon as he hung up the clothes. Within seconds. He SAW it
land on the carpet in the middle of the doorway. It was out in the open, not near anything at all. Just there.
He turned to pick it up after hanging up the clothes...and it was not there. At first, he thought, "how odd." Then, he started looking for it. He
got so flustered, that he actually moved furniture, stripped the bed, looked in the hallway outside the room, and when he found himself looking in the
other rooms upstairs, he realized something very weird had occurred. He was so certain he saw it land and come to a stop. He saw it land and seconds
later, it seemed to have dropped off the planet. We never found it. Had this happened when he came back for it maybe a few hours, or even minutes
later, he could have doubted himself. But this was literally seconds, and he just knew what he had seen. Again, he was alone in the house. And no
Those are our experiences with stuff disappearing. We've also had electronics turn off and on by themselves, I've been touched on the back when no
one is there, things moving in sight when no one is touching them, things violently crashing from the wall, and one instance of spontaneous
combustion. That one made me pretty mad.
If you can't find a good explanation, it doesn't mean it is paranormal, but i feel that this possibility ought to be at least considered an option.
