Strange happenings!

  1. Has this ever happened to you? I'm sort of freaked out by it!

    I sang for a friend's wedding last January and I bought a karaoke CD that had the song on it to sing with. A guy at church asked me if I still had that CD and I said "yeah, but I have NO idea where it is" Told him I'd look for it...he said he needed it ASAP and was leaving town for the wedding he's singing it at on Thurs morning.

    So, I go home and look EVERYWHERE for the stupid CD...and I do mean everywhere...no CD...called my friend that had gotten married last year and she had no idea where it ended up after the wedding (although asking her was a long shot, I knew I had it somewhere just no clue where). I had given up completely and written it off to the same gremlins who take the socks out of the dryer.

    The guy at church settled for guitar chords and a download to learn the song.

    Yesterday I'm talking on the phone with my mom...tell her about my search and she suggested places to look...all of a sudden my eyes land on a drawer in my entertainment unit...and I hear CLEARLY that little voice that tells you stuff when you least expect it say - did you look UNDER the drawer? It fell out. SURE ENOUGH I pulled the drawer out and there was the CD covered in dust and sitting in the bottom of the entertainment unit!!!! FREAKY!!!!

    Yes, I hear voices...hehehe...that's not the point...what made me think of that?!?!?!?! I was on day 3 of looking for that stupid CD!!!

    Has anything freaky like that happened to you guys?!?!

    I am always finding something that I am have searched for when I no longer need it or have given up on ever finding it

    Hey! That's one place I haven't checked! Wait just a sec..............Nope. Sigh.

    It did get me out of sending Christmas cards this year though.

    One that I'm still trying to figure out, years later: I lost my car keys one day, turned the house upside down, couldn't find them, searched all day the next - no keys. Had to go back to work the next day, so called a locksmith and had another set made. Two days later, I found the keys - on TOP of the refrigerator, UNDER the flour canister! At the time I was the only driver in the house and the only one tall enough to reach the top of the fridge, so I don't have a clue??? Wrote it off to gremlins.

    That finding-things-unexpectedly thing does happen to me.
    However, I took off two rings many years ago (even BK [before kids]) and I remember thinking, I should put these where I can find them again easily. You guessed it. I NEVER FOUND THEM AGAIN (and we've moved since then).

    NEVER.

    NEVER. (and I liked them a lot, too [sniff])

    LOL!

    About 16 years ago I lost my only set of car keys and was totally trapped at home with 3 little kids and had places I had to be (I think it was a class)...anyway, the locksmith would only take cash and I had none so I was getting the kids ready to go...decided I wanted a shirt off the bottom of the pile in my then 3 yo son's drawer...and there were the keys.

    I remember a friend once who lost her alarm clock (didn't understand that to begin with), but it appeared a couple of days later behind something in her refrigerator. Cold gremlins, I guess...

    It happened to me tonight as a matter of fact. I was rummaging through my junk drawers and found my little spray of "door lock de-icer for when the locks freeze up and stuffed it into my work bag thinking, "I should have this on hand NOW since it's going to be so cold tonight and I had gone to the car wash earlier...just had to...couldn't see out my windows they were so dirty from the wet roads with salt, dirt. Anyway I went out to the car to bring my daughters friend home before I left for work and when she got in the back, her door would not stay shut. Seemed that the latch on the door was frozen. Found that little de-icer spray just in time...Must have been the de-icer gobblins workin it.
