I have hesitated to write about my possible paranormal experience at the house because I don’t want you all to think I am crazy (spoiler alert: I am). In all honesty, I cannot say whether I do believe in ghosts though I love a good, real-life ghost story. I have never experienced a haunting aside from the few times I have been walking up a set of stairs and my brain tells me someone is behind me and I race to the top to escape (and don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about).
Last week I gave a tour of the house to my friend, her mom, and her mom’s sisters. We made it to the master bedroom area and from there you can look down, onto the porch roof. We added snowbirds to the roof which are there to stop ice from falling on a person’s head…I think…I mean, that’s the general idea. There could be more to them but that’s how I understand their existence. The ladies that were touring the house didn’t know what they were and suggested I take a picture to add them to the Instagram page with an explanation of what they are. I did just that, took a picture with my phone and then we moved on.
Later that evening, I went back to look at the picture and post it to Instagram but it wasn’t there. No big deal. User error. I figured I would take another one next time I went to the house.
Marcus and I went to the house this past Friday and I specifically ran upstairs before we left so I could take a picture of the snowbirds. I made sure to check that the picture had been taken and we left. Again, later that evening, I went to post the picture to Instagram and…it wasn’t there. Now I don’t know what to think. I mean, newfangled technology confuses me from time to time but taking a picture is pretty straightforward. To take a picture of the same thing twice and to somehow lose it twice is strange.
What do you think? Is there a friendly spirit messing with me or is it user error?
