I’ve never gotten to see a Big Foot. Or a UFO. (Or an abdominal snowman, whatever that is. Hmm. Did I hear that wrong?) Or anything like that. It probably has to do with the fact that I never go outside any more than necessary, but it is still disappointing. Not that I really believe in those things anyway, but it would be neat to see something mysterious like that. My parents, however, did have a few encounters themselves.
My dad once was hiking and thought he saw a Big Foot. He said, “I was walking around Andrews Lake in Colorado. As I walked along the south shore of the lake with my camera and tripod, I looked at the north east shore and noticed a furry being standing on two legs and staring at me. I got my camera ready and tried to snap a picture as it left. I’m sure it was a bear and it did not expect to see me in the early chilly morning.”
My mom had a very interesting UFO sighting. She said, “When I was around 10 years old, I lived in a very rural area. One evening when I was alone, I had a feeling of heaviness. It’s hard to explain. I just felt a heavy presence over the house. I decided to look out of the back window, and I saw something huge in the sky. It was moving very slowly towards the house and then moved over it. There were tons of lights under it, and I remember, it didn’t make a sound. I figured that no one would believe me, when my sister ran into the house and said, ‘Did you see that?’ I was so happy that someone else had seen it. I don’t believe in UFO’s, but it was sure odd.”
Darn. The duck never gets to see anything neat. All I ever saw was a disturbingly large bee once…. Do you guys have any stories to share?
