I am new to this website, but I am not new to the paranormal, and I've been interested in this subject since I was a really little kid. I've had few experiences but this was my first encounter with the paranormal.
This was about nine or ten years ago, I think I was around six or seven. I was sitting in my living room, drinking some Kool-Aid next to this really old rocking chair that my mom had that was handed down many generations. I sat down on the floor, right next to the rocking chair, just relaxing and waiting for one of my friends to come over. My mom was in the backyard with my little sister, who was maybe three or four at the time. I had a really old wooden television set in my living room which was facing the old rocking chair. I was just sitting there, looking out my window, when I happened to see something out of the corner of my eye. I looked into the televison and saw a man sitting next to me in the old rocking chair. I blinked and the man was vanished.
The man looked a lot like my dad, too. My dad is not dead or anything, so that was really weird to me. I was so frightened by the man I ran out of the room screaming and into the backyard. When I told my mom, she said I was watching too much Scooby-Doo, But I know what I saw was real and not a dream or anything. This event has stuck out in my mind ever since.
