WHAT WAS THAT?!!!

SP and I found ourselves asking this question to each other, very abruptly at 4 this morning!  The both of us practically froze stiff, scared out of our minds.  We were so asleep, and were woken so quickly to a sound in the kitchen!

See this cup...


When SP said, "What the hell was that?", I knew it was a plastic cup hitting the floor.  But, why now-who's there?!  He grabbed his maglite (b/c it works as both weapon & light!) and headed towards the kitchen, & me, still completely frozen in the bed, staring very intently into the kitchen.   At that hour of the night, a cup falling just doesn't seem right.  So he searched around and finally saw this cup had fallen off the bar!  But the tricky part is that it landed straight up!  So not only did it fall from bar height, in the middle of the night, but it landed STRAIGHT UP!  Like this...


Completely baffled and fully awake at this point (but still frozen in the bed of course!) I notice the heat was on.  The only thing I can think of, shy of a ghost or someone was in our house, is that the heat kicking on blew it in just the most inappropriate way to where it caused it to fall.  Of course, we played around with lightly tapping it off the counter this morning to see if we could make it stand up like this.  No such luck.  Why did we even try!

It took us FOREVER go to back to sleep.  By about 4:45am I began to hear the big FedEx planes flying over head and I started dreaming of all the Christmas presents they were delivering and where they all might have come from.

We will NEVER leave an empty plastic cup up there, that close to the edge again!!  Man it completely freaked us out!  And, it's not our cup!  I had it there to give back to my neighbor!  HOLLIE!!!!  Come get your haunted cup :))

I'm glad it is nothing more than one of those odd phenomenons. (this is one more reason why I'm glad I don't hear as well as others) I probably would have slept right through this... but that's really CRAZY!

That is insanely creepy! You can keep the cup, I do not want any Ghosts hitching a ride in the cup to my house! I do find it incredibly hilarious however that y'all tried to knock the cup off the counter to try to get it to land the same way! hahahahaha
