Do You Believe In Ghosts? The Fourth Kind. Lenape Park.

So I just got a call from my friend Larry. I went to high school with him. He was always a bit of an exaggerator. So when he told us that he was lying in his bed one night and he was elevated off of the bed by what he believed were aliens, we of course, never let him live it down.

But he SWORE it was true.

So he called me to ask me if I saw the movie poster for The Fourth Kind*, because he said he just saw it and it reminded him of when he was lifted off of the bed. He still claims it happened.



I've got to tell you that I'm a skeptical of most things. I don't believe in gods, aliens or ghosts. Well, there might be aliens but I don't think they ever visited earth.

People ask,"how do you explain......?" I don't. There are a lot of unexplained things and that's just what they are. Unexplained. As my brother once said, "I don't know how they saw a woman in half but that doesn't make it magic."

Probably the weirdest unexplained thing that happened to me was an event when I was in high school. I was on a deserted back road near Lenape Park. The nickname of the place was Paradise. (Are you scared yet?) It was myself, a friend and two girls. So we're sitting on the hood of the car drinking beers and a car pulls onto the road and stops about 50 yards from us. We immediately hid the beers and waited because this was pretty much a deserted road and hardly anyone ever drove on it.

So we're watching to see what the person is going to do. The headlights remain on but the car engine is turned off. After about 10 minutes, we decide to walk up and see what the hell is going on. Maybe it was a friend.

So we approach the car, it's not a car we recognize. We look in and nobody is in the car! How could this be? We were watching it since it pulled in and we didn't see anybody get out. Even if we didn't see them get out, we would have heard them. On the left of the car was an embankment. On the right was a huge drop, then train tracks. So there was really nowhere the person could have gone.

AHHHHHH!

So we ran like hell back to our car and got the hell out of there. Never to learn what it was all about.

So let's hear it. Does anyone have a weird encounter with a ghost, alien or god?

*The movie does look pretty awesome though.

I like to pretend I don't believe...but well, I'm not sure. Things like that scare the crap out of me. I'm one of those people who has to run up the stairs as fast as possible if the lights are off because I'm scared something is behind me!

Pink Jelly Baby - Oh that stuff still can scare me. I just don't believe in it.

I guess that makes me....stupid? I don't know.

That *is* a creepy story.

I once saw a ghost smiling and leaning against a bunk bed at church camp, but in retrospect he kind of looked like Jesus if Jesus had a gray beard, so it was probably just a case of brainwash.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - was there a space ship next to him? Now think hard...

There was?

I KNEW there was.

We used to live in a haunted house, it wasn't that old, built in the 60's. It was two streets down from the cemetery, and when Hurricane Andrew came through, our house was flooded with muddy water. I could site lots of weirdness, but I won't. I will tell you this, living in a haunted house is not cool, it sucked. I've owned two really old houses since then and only one mild "weirdness" between the two of them.
That is all.

Creepiest thing I've seen is Karl Lagerfeld.

That's freaky!

I don't have any good scary stories. I blame lack of access to woods.

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - how about some details?

Scope said...

Sorry 'bout that dude. That was "Future Me" with doing the car thing. Sometime in the future I find a time machine, and use it to go into the past and totally screw with people.

While you were up looking in the car, future me was probably at your car, drinking your beer. He can be a dick like that.

Word ver - noidea. That explains the unexplained.

Paradise. Party haven.

Dr Zibbs said...

Son of A T - Do you know that place as Paradise too? I thought that was a name my one friend made up.

This is Dr. Zibbs friend Larry. I have to admit I always exaggerated stories especially in High School. When I had this experience of elevating off the bed, I know no one would believe me. However I told Dr. Zibbs just for some laughs even though it felt so real. We laughed and made fun of the experience enough times over the years, I decided to pass it off as drinking a few too much beer that night. What really made me laugh was seeing the advertising for The Fourth Kind over the weekend. The picture in the advertisement is exactly what I described 25 years ago. Isn’t that right Dr Zibbs? By the way I do not believe in aliens however I believe in a Spiritual world and the existence of The Creator God.
