Have You Ever Experienced Something That Just Could Not Be Logically Explained?

Another entry in the 300 writing prompt journal my son gifted me for Christmas.

When I was a child, or maybe a young teenager, I was lying awake in bed one night. Very late. I thought I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I looked over, and I saw the dresser moving. Left and right. Sometimes slow, sometimes fast. I could feel my skin tighten with goosebumps. I couldn’t move. The dresser continued to move. I finally managed to say a little prayer. Or maybe it was a line from The Exorcist. The power of Christ compels you. Honestly, I forget which. The dresser stopped moving. I felt the foot of the bed rise and drop to the floor. And everything was quiet. I don’t know if any of this happened or not. It could have been a dream, I suppose. You know the one, you feel the bed disappear and you are falling. Maybe similar to that. I don’t know. But I don’t think so. All these years, hell, even decades later, I can still remember the night vividly. I’m not a strictly religious person, but I am spiritual. I’m still leaning towards my belief that this really happened. Maybe it was psychic energy acting out or my imagination. I wasn’t controlling the scene, though. I’m not sure what happened, but I think it did happen.

How I’d Spend a Lazy Day

For Christmas this year my son gifted me a journal containing 300 writing prompts and space to write. I think it’s a wonderful gift, and have started making use of it already. I’ll start with the first entry for my first blog of the year.

What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day?

My favorite way to spend a lazy day is to read. Possibly write. Maybe throw something tasty on the grill. Go to the gym for a workout and get a nice shower after. I might also play a video game.

If it is raining, I might put some music on and take a nap. A heavy rain is always good for a nap.

Music will be playing regardless. Something relaxing to fit the lazy nature of the day. Maybe some jazz, or meditation music.

Zoning out in front of QVC is always an option. I just must resist the temptation to buy something out of boredom.

I’ll have to resist the urge to waste the day watching YouTube.

A good movie or Netflix may be in order. I’d probably make popcorn to go with.
