I would like to start by saying that I really do believe in ghosts. They interest me, but at the same time scare me. Call me a coward if you wish, but ghosts are really my only and biggest fear or phobia.
This happened to me about a month ago and has really stuck with me. In my room I had this 10 year old electronic game. His name was Norm Nutman and it was a sports trivia game. My parents got it for me for Christmas when I was younger. It had been sitting in my room, untouched, for years. It is battery operated, and was pretty much being used as decoration for my room, which is filled with tons of sports items.
I just graduated college last May and I am still adjusting to a 40 hour work week. Many mornings I find myself struggling to get up, but I am getting better. I make sure I get to my new job every morning on time. With all that being said I can get on to the story.
One morning I woke up to my alarm, just like any other normal day. Like usual, I was really tired. Therefore, I wanted to lay in bed for a few more minutes. I felt myself falling back asleep. My eyes became heavier and heavier. Then all the sudden I hear loud music next to my bed. I jumped up out of bed, with chills and scared out of my mind!
With my eyes barely open, I tried locating the source of the sound and found that it was coming from Norm! I grabbed him, instantly took him downstairs. I took the batteries out of him and threw him away.
Once I arrived at work, I couldn't help but think about what happened. It may sound silly, but I feel like someone was watching out for me. I think I would have fallen back asleep and I would have been late or even missed work. Being a new hire, that wouldn't have been good.
It may have been the game malfunctioning, but it is just weird that it went off when it did. I'm excited to hear your thoughts, because everyone I have told the story to so far has made fun of me about it!
