My older sister and I like to take my nephews (her sons) over to the cemetery right next to my house for picnics when the weather is good, because it is very peaceful and quiet. About a week ago we decided to take my oldest nephew for a picnic, on this particular occasion we chose to sit on the steps of the Post mausoleum, we got out our snacks and drinks and began chatting about the weather and family.
My nephew likes to walk around by the large metal door of the mausoleum, as he was walking by the door he gasped and looked toward the bottom right of the door and said "boy" (my nephew is 2 years old, so it was hard to get a description) I asked him who was there and he said "boy and guy". We figured he may well have seen someone, but he didn't really seem scared so we let it go.
A few minutes later he started talking about the "guy" again, so I told him to ask "what is your name?" He then turned toward the door saying "Name? Name?" He turned back to my sister and me and said "call me man". So I asked what "man" looks like, he said "doctor". I found this odd because C. W. Post was not a doctor. Minutes later my nephew started acting scared and came over to me pouting saying he wanted to go home. So we packed up and started heading home.
That night he slept at my house, I got online and found a picture of C. W. Post, W. K. Kellogg and John Harvey Kellogg, figuring that during the days that these 3 men were around they all ran Cereal companies out of my town, and would possibly have been feuding over customers. Not to mention John Harvey Kellogg was in fact a doctor at the Battle Creek Sanatorium.
The next day I showed all of the pictures to my nephew, first was W.K Kellogg he said "that's a guy" then I showed him John Harvey Kellogg, he responded with "guy", finally I showed him C. W. Post, he said "Doctor"...
I got chills. C. W. Post worked a lot inventing cereals, in a lab. Meaning he would have likely been wearing a lab coat. The only doctors my nephew has ever seen were wearing lab coats. So it is understandable that a factory owner (such as C.W. Post) could be misinterpreted as a doctor.
I would love to hear your opinions.
My nephew has seen things before, but nothing like this, and we usually passed it off as his imagination.
QueenTas - Interestin read. I find it interesting how he saw the guy and was able to comfirm it when you showed him the pics. Very interesting in deed.
