Not so dead.

Have you ever had an experience that left you thinking. What the fuck?



When I was eight my brother Darren and I went to our nan's house with my two cousins, Sarah and Claire. We were all sitting in my nan's bedroom watching the tv and talking, just messing around in general when a picture of my uncle, who had passed away about a decade before, all of a sudden fell off the tv.

My cousin Sarah picked the picture up and put it back on the tv and no sooner had she done that it began to move towards the edge and fell off again, this happened out five times before my nan turned off the tv thinking perhaps the vibration of the sound was causing the picture to have a major spaz attack. But even then the picture kept falling as though somebody was purposefully pushing it towards the edge.

After a few minutes we began to get scared, I mean, pictures aren't living things! How often to inanimate object spring legs and commit suicide off tv's?

Yeah, not often I can tell ya.

So, sufficiently scared my nan instructed Sarah to place the picture in a draw, which she did and we all sat quietly, not sure what to make of the situation. We were just about to breathe a sigh of relief when all of a sudden a red toy car that had been sitting next to the picture on the tv, flew at me! I think it is safe to say I shit myself although my reaction wasn't quite dramatic, I just froze.

About twenty minutes later my brother and I decided that was it. We were going home and we were going to run faster than road runner to get there. Upon our arrival we hurried into the house, our mum and dad were waiting for us and out auntie was visiting. Our story came out in a fluffy of fear, excitement and disbelief. I think it is safe to say that our parents thought we were crazy.

Except, after about the third time we told them what happened, dad called our nan, she confirmed it and we all sat at the table discussing it. After a while my auntie's eyes went wide and she suddenly asked my dad when he was going to drive to Aberdeen for work. He told her he would be leaving the next day in a red estate car, then he realised what she was getting at.

Before my dad went to work that day he checked the car throughout and found that the breaks weren't working. If he had driving to Aberdeen in that car he could have died.

So I think I'm a firm believer in ghosts and nobody is going to convince me otherwise!

That kicks so much ass. Ghosts or other paranormal phenomenon is cool.
