It’s been a kind of weird week around here this past week. Some of the stuff is weird, some may just be coincidence. Check it out and let me know what you think.
When you hear a thump in the night….
Don’t assume that your buddies are trying to scare you by whipping snowballs at your house….
This was exactly what my neighbor thought the other night when he heard 5-6 thumps on the side of his house while he and a friend were watching a movie. They jumped up and ran outside but no one was there.
The next day, my neighbor was outside and found 5 or 6 dead black birds next to the side of his house. Apparently they had been flying and crashed into his house!
The New Road Kill: Squirrels?
My daughter and I were returning home from church yesterday and saw
a dead squirrel lying in the middle of the road. That is totally unusual. For
some reason, squirrels always seem to escape getting hit.
Wouldn’t you know it, a mile and a half down the road we see ANOTHER dead squirrel?
The other day I was using a sharp knife to do something and I stabbed my hand at the base of my thumb, near my palm. I don’t even know if stabbed is the word for it-maybe poked- because it just barely left a mark and didn’t bleed.
Later my daughter told me she accidently stabbed herself with her pencil while at school. She showed me the mark- it was in the exact spot mine was! Same hand, too!
A day or so later I was again driving, but this time with my son. We were discussing what we should have for dinner. I was in the mood for a Steak sub with onions, peppers and cheese.
I wasn’t sure yet how many of our 9 or 10 (or was it 12???) household members would be there for dinner so I decided to wait to find out before making a decision.
Later Ron returned home. I asked what he wanted for dinner. He said he couldn’t even think about food right then.
He was stuffed from the Philly Cheese Steak sub he had for lunch!
Darn it! That ruled out my plans
So what do you think….is that a weird week or what?
Have you witnessed any strange animal behavior or eeerie coincedences in your life lately?
