"Boys are stinky and you can't get up here with us" little Molly and her friends taunted her brother from the bouncy castle that was swaying in the strong winds
He merely smiled, took his penknife from his pocket and cut through the ropes that were tethering it down...

She smiled as the warm wind blew against her face.
You could still see it even after she hit the ground.

My tiny matrix glitch on a winding back road in the New England fall
I just found this sub so Im only now bringing it up. I was leaving my then boyfriends, around august 2021. It was a drive through rural New England back to my house, a drive I had taken many times. I was on a big, long stretch of backroad that was set at 50mph, down to 40 in some winding spots. I had been stuck behind this silver Subaru with a license plate, something x and a 20, a coexist sticker in the right corner, and they were moving at TURTLE speed. Since the road was mostly vacant I waited for a safe, clear opportunity to pass them and zoomed on by. I got up to about 65 or so (yes Im bad) and wound through for another 7-10 minutes. Suddenly I rounded a corner and a silver Subaru with a license plate x blah blah 20 and that same purple coexist sticker was directly in front of me crawling along. I slammed on my breaks to be a reasonably safe distance behind them. I was so #&@$ing confused. Had they taken a backroad? I didnt see a single turnoff since I passed them. How had they gotten in front of me going so slow? I was baffled. It was the EXACT same car, I was sure of it. I rode behind them in shock the rest of the road until they took a mysterious turn down an unmarked dirt road and then I sped home. Thats basically it. Thats my story. Maybe it was two RIDICULOUSLY similar cars, maybe my video game glitched. Most confusing moment of my life.

With the little light I had, I saw the trees swaying left and right in the wind.
It wasnt until they started moving up and down that I realized they werent what I thought they were.

haunted wind chimes?
Ive experienced several ghostly things that I cant logically explain away in my childhood home. I think this one is my favorite.
I had some decorative wind chimes hanging from the ceiling in my room. When I was maybe 16 or so, I began to notice them chiming randomly. There was no rhyme or reason to it-the chiming didnt sync up with my ceiling fan, the central AC kicking on or off, or the wind outside. It didnt make sense, but my mind never went to anything paranormal.
I told my older brother about it one day to see if he had any ideas on why it could be happening, because it was starting to annoy me. He didnt have any explanation, either.
A few days later, as I was trying to sleep, the chimes moved frequently. Like, at least once a minute. It was midnight, I was tired, and Id had it. I stood on my bed, took down the chimes, and laid them flat on the floor on the other side of my room. That was that, and I finally was able to fall asleep.
The next morning, I go downstairs and meet my brother in the living room. He tells me, I see what you mean about the chimes.
I asked him what he was talking about. He said that when he went up to bed the previous night, he heard my chimes going crazy. I then asked him what time he went to bed, and he said, Around 2.
