And in other news: tell me ghost stories! Stories, anecdotes, weird little unexplained things that happened to you, someone in your family, a friend, some chick you knew in highschool, that sort of thing. Entertain me!
It's not much of a story, and I will point out that I'm a hardline skeptic, but the storyteller and anthropologist in me love hearing Stories of the Unexplained.* Mine happened right before my senior year of highschool. I was dating a guy at that point (didn't last long), and he came over to my house on a day when both my parents were gone - it was the week before school started, so they were both at work preparing. He and I were back in my room, making out, when I clearly heard the front door opening and a male voice call out "Steph?" The guy heard it too, and jumped off the bed, tucking his shirt and smoothing his hair, and we both left the room and walked down the hall ... to find there was no one there. He was shaken up enough that he left and went home.
(Skeptical explanation - I was nervous enough already at my parents possibly discovering us, since my dad didn't keep regular hours and could show up at any moment. I probably heard something and interpreted it as that, and my sudden, panicked reaction may have cued the guy that I thought someone was home. We didn't talk about it, so I really can't be sure what he did or did not hear. All I know for sure is that at that point, he said "I better go home" and left. But it makes a good story anyway. :D)
* And I won't argue with anyone that nothing happened - obviously something happened to them. I may disagree about the ultimate cause of said event (something neurological or psychological, mistaken identity, leaping to conclusions on incorrect data, hoax, etc.), but that's not the important part - the anthropologist in me thinks that the meaning of the event, the event's interpretation, and the social context are the important and interesting bits.
