That Wasn't Me


This happened to my mom. My mom (her name is Penny) was downstairs chopping lettuce or something, getting ready for dinner. She noticed how cold it was getting in the house, and asked me to turn on the fire. The fire flickered on and she said her thanks. My mom continued getting dinner ready when she saw someone walk past the doorway to the kitchen. She called my name.

I was upstairs, the entire time, watching a movie with my friend. When she called my name, I walked to the stair ledge and asked what it was. She had a surprised expression on her face and said that I was downstairs.

I said no, that I was upstairs the entire time. This gave us both the chills, because it wasn't me who had turned on the fire either.

Also, though this sounds strange, we have seen ghost ships or old colonial ships sail by our house at night sometimes. My mom doesn't believe in ghosts, but she still gets freaked out.

After this, many strange things have happened. We have noticed dead animals around our house too. Well, give me your comments.

I believe you. I think that you do have a ghost in your house, but I do not think it is a bad spirit. The ships: I think that there may have been a lake or sea or something next to your house a long time ago. Maybe people died on those ships and are coming back to earth to relive the time when they were alive. Thanks for posting such a great story!:-)

Wow, that's interesting! My dad doesn't believe in ghosts, but he didn't have an explination for seeing "me" walk down the hall way and dissapear out the front door.

He went to the door and yelled out "get back her Fran!" but I popped my my head from the top floor and said I didn't go anywhere. He was freaked!

My dog still visits me, so yeah, it's not all bad 😊

Wow, I hope that spirit is a good guy. Keep looking out for it! And I hope your mom isn't too freaked out anymore.

Hi Kirby,
At least your spirit was helpful!That's a good thing. Jus wonders how a ship can be a ghost or people wear the same clothes- I think it's because it's just residual energy, from the era they were. If you said your great-grandfather paid you a visit wearing the latest fashionable tux from Armani, I'd have to say you're full of it! 😊

I wonder how the hell ships are ghost, and how people come back with their original clothing on... I don't get it.

I believe you may have a spirit in your home. I also think, time is repeating itself when you see the colonial ships or ghost ships sailing by and the dead animals around your home. That does happen in this world.
