Knife Neighbors -FOWC – Neighbor

FOWC with Fandango — Neighbor

I’ve written a lot about our neighbors, and neighborhood, so this time I’ll tell you a true Ghost Story. This really happened.

One more true story about teleportation…

KNIFE NEIGHBORS

Have you ever lost something, only to have it reappear, years later?

This item I lost was a knife. It was an ordinary, inexpensive, paring knife. I had not packed it away, or just forgotten about using it, but one I used almost every day. I’d had this knife for quite a while, and it was my favorite, because it was easy to use, a good fit for my hand, and was excellent for peeling potatoes.

Then one day, as I went to get it from the drawer it was kept in, I couldn’t find it. I looked everywhere, even in other places, but it was gone. Over the years, I never quit looking for it…hoping it was just misplaced, and I’d find it someday. There were other knives that I could use, and did use, but none as good as that one. I’d pretty much come to the conclusion that it must have been accidentally been thrown out by mistake.

Then, this past year, it re-appeared. I opened the drawer to get a knife, and there it was, right on top of all the other knives…just like it had always been, before. It was like it had never gone missing, at all. I stared at it for a minute.

How did it come back? Where had it been, all these years? Why did it come back, now? Maybe, my parallel universe ‘neighbor’ had teleported the knife over to them, and had been using the knife for awhile. Had it been in their kitchen? Were ‘they’ missing the knife now, like I had?

Very strange…I suppose I’ll never really know for sure, but I’m happy it came back. I use it all the time.

    • know…I remember you writing about that picture! So strange to have things move around or disappear, isn’t it! I’ve had other things go missing, only to show up later on. 🙂

    • I can’t be sure, of course, but I do think there are parallel universes, and other dimensions. Some things are unexplainable otherwise. I keep an open mind about it all, and it’s interesting to think about.
      haha – if there is, I’d hope there was some glitch that excluded the orange guy! 🙂

  1. Isn’t that funny?!? You know what else is funny? How we assign these jobs to our utensils. I have a really old knife and I only use it to slice strawberries. It’s my strawberry knife. If I lost it, I’d be beside myself!
    I’m glad you got it back, wherever it was!

    • I’m glad the knife came back, too.
      It is funny how we use the same thing every time, for the same job, and call it that. I completely understand having your strawberry knife.
