The Beer Can


We had a party for my Grandma's 60th birthday, and I was up at 2 am with my uncle and his friend, Angel. We went to his house where his parents were sleeping in their room. I had invited my boyfriend, so it was my boyfriend, my uncle, Angel and me.

My uncle went into a room to get the DVD case so we could pick out a movie for the night. As my uncle went to get the case, my boyfriend went to the bathroom, leaving just Angel and me in the room. There was an empty beer can on the table across from us, and it started to vibrate. We looked at each other and assumed it was just the two rotating fans in the room and the kitchen.

The can rattled again. This time, we paid attention to the way the fans were rotating. By then, my boyfriend was back and my uncle was still looking for that darn DVD case. As the fan blew in the direction of the can, it didn't move. That meant the fan was out of the question. We know that a lot of stuff happens where they live, so we ignored it.

It rattled again and Angel finally said, "If there is someone in here, could you shake the can?" The can shook again. My uncle came in from the hall with the DVDs and we told him what had happened. He just said, "Oh I guess Josh is here." Then he said, "Hi." and the can shook.

Hello---This story reminds me a bit of an old tv comedy called the Munsters. When people from the outside world would see something really weird happen in the Munster home, the family would always react with a humorous nonchalance about it. Even if Spot, their firebreathing dragon under the stairs, decided to let out a roar while the guest was present.

From time to time I have read of spirits who behave in the way described in this story.
It's an entertaining account, pleasantly light.
Thanks for the story.

I really liked this story. I smiled and even chuckled a little. Who doesn't appreciate a good beer once in a while?
All the way up to the last sentence, though, I was thinking vibrations. You had people walking through the apartment which COULD have caused a bit of floor movement, even from a separate room.
That last sentence though, what was the relationship between your Uncle and Josh? This is really interesting.

Hi Kawaii52, Awesome story! I was just wondering, who is Josh? Is he realated to you or your uncle in some way? Did he have some connection with beer or that specific beer can? The answers to these few questions might clear up a few things 😊
Hope to hear from you, Lily x

That's pretty cool. At least your uncle has a good relationship with this spirit. I guess he was just wanted you guys to know he was there and to say hello. Good story!
