Sunday is for Paranormal Lovers / by Rollie Agado

All is quiet at the apartment right now, but the morning got off to an unusual start...  before I get to what occurred at 4:00 AM, I need to preface this by saying - I don't believe in ghosts.

Took this photo while visiting a local book store last week... much to my surprise, this is a real genre of books.

I've been living in my apartment for nearly 5 years now and I have always had a number of strange sounds and bizarre (but explainable) electrical problems.

Example: There are light switches that affect power outlets in other areas of the apartment.  It's a little freaky at first to turn off a ceiling fan and then hear a television turn on in an empty room, but I've been able to replicate it numerous times...

That being said... I've had a few people visit who have witnessed/experienced strange things.  I have one personal example.  Mine involves a light switch.  I turned off a light switch and then felt it flip back down inexplicably.

It's something that I really can't explain, but it's the best example that I got.  Rhiannon recently stayed at the apartment by herself while I was away in Seattle for work and after finishing some dishes after making dinner at home one night.  The kitchen sink turned on inexplicably...

My cat Amos, will inexplicably sit and stare at nothing from time to time and we've been known to kid around about that too...

My sister and niece stayed over last night and at 4:00 am, my sister came into the living room to alert me that my 2 year old niece was talking about a little boy in the corner who "dies".  My niece could have been mumbling a number of things and for all I know she mumbled something that sounded like the word "boy" - but my sister (paranormal believer) woke me up to inform me that I indeed had a ghost.

So there you have it.  A ghost resides among us.
