Hi everyone! I've had a few scary experiences in the past. I kind of hate talking and remembering them because then it gets my imagination working on overdrive. But I love scaring myself so anyways, here it goes. I live on Long Island and know of many scary "haunted" places. When I was younger I was always interested in ghosts, probably due to all those darn Goosebump books I read (anyone else read them?).
I've had two experiences in two homes I have lived in with my family. The first experience was when I lived in Babylon down by the water. I'm pretty sure we had a poltergeist in our home (ghosts can't move things correct?). I lived in a ranch home and the downstairs was converted into a playroom for me and my siblings. Behind the playroom was another room which was separated by a door. Back there was the boiler, a bathroom and the garage.
The door leading into the boiler room would always shake violently whenever the boiler came on. My parents said the door would shake due to the boiler running. But can the boiler make a door shake like that? I wish I was older when I lived there so I could have questioned my parents more, I was only in second grade.
My brother was very interested in ghosts as well and had me do a seance with him to bring back the spirit of John F Kennedy (ha ha!) so embarrassing I know, but he had just learned about him in school. So he and I closed all the blinds and performed what we thought was a seance which my brother ended up calling on other "spirits". I remember that the room became darker but that was about it. I think that having that seance may have "opened up" a door, because after that there were a few odd occurrences which traveled on with us to our next home.
Another embarrassing thing to have happened that I feel so silly talking about is that one night while I was sleeping, I rolled over and saw a dead animal staring at me. It looked like a dead sandy camel. So weird. I just remember freezing and slowly backing up into my wall and putting the covers over my head.
The last scary thing to happen here, my mother and I both witnessed. My mother and I were sitting on the couch and watching tv. We had one of those squeaky baby toys sitting on the tv stand. All of the sudden, something smacked the toy off of the tv stand with such force that it actually made the toy squeak. I thought that was the scariest thing that happened. And my mother told me it was the wind...
