It’s awesome to have great imagination, but sometimes it can pull tricks on us. Cozy nights can easily turn into a real horror movie. Some of these situations were so out of this world, not even Stephen King could compete with them. How great it is though to realize you were just making a mountain out of a molehill?

Last night, I was awakened by a truly chilling sound: an old woman’s voice speaking quietly in my bathroom. My husband is out of town, so I spent a full minute frozen alone in bed running through possibilities of what could be going on. A ghost? A home invader? It turned out to be my phone, which I had accidentally left on YouTube by the sink, playing a 2.5+ hour-long interview with Olivia de Havilland.

My dad went into the garage one night, bumped into some old boxes, and heard “heh heh heh” nearby. Instant goosebumps. It turned out to be an old Furby that no one had touched in over a decade. No idea how the batteries could still work!
