Mystery Box Chickens say, “Let’s fly away.”


Today we have the letter T. It would be strange if I didn’t tell about teleportation, since my blog is titled teleportingweena! So, here’s my story…


A True Tale of Teleportation

As promised, here is another of my true tales of teleportation. At least, that is what I call these incidents. We were totally bewildered by the whole incident.

Have you ever been at a certain place, and then suddenly, without knowing how, you are at another place? This happened to me and my daughter, one summer day, not long ago.

We’d been out and about town, going to yard sales, on a Saturday morning. We’ve done this off and on for years, and we know the streets and areas pretty well. Once in awhile, we drive around an unfamiliar neighborhood, trying to find the advertised address, without too much trouble.

This morning was about the same, and we did find the yard sale. It was in a little housing area just to the south of the city. To get there was no problem…just one turn from the main road, then into the residential streets. We did our shopping, then got back in the car to go find more sales.

We pulled back onto the main road we’d come in on; that much I know. It should have been the one turn, back the way we’d come. I know we turned in the right direction…north. However, nothing looked the same at all, now. The housing area where we’d just been, was not there anymore. It should have been off to our right, but there was no sign of it at all. We didn’t see any of the landmarks we’d noticed on the way there, and even the dip in the road and the stop sign, we’d taken note of earlier, was not there, now.

We kept driving straight, along this road, hoping to see something we recognized. The whole time, we kept remarking about how weird this was. We couldn’t figure it out. We felt really lost…in our own town, and were getting nervous about it.

Finally, finally we saw a street sign that told us where we were. But, it seemed impossible that we were at this place and on this street, now. We’d only made the one turn, back toward town. Now we were miles away from where we’d been, and in a completely different area and on this different street. We’d have had to make even more turns to get on this one.

We were relieved to know where we were, now, but still had no explanation of how it happened…except that maybe, just maybe, we’d been through a time/place/space warp…or something!

There could have been a portal that swallowed us up, moving us to the other place. We didn’t feel anything, we didn’t see anything…we just found ourselves in a completely different place in that split second.

I don’t have any idea why, or how this happened, but since it did, and we were eventually able to find our way back, it seems pretty amazing. I wouldn’t mind doing it again, but would like a warning that it was going to happen, first!


Thanks for Visiting! Peace ☮️

    • It sure was strange, Janet! I’ve gotten lost now and again, as I’m not real good with directions, but my daughter was driving and she knew which way we should go. Never had happened before, and hasn’t since. 🙂

    • We didn’t have a GPS, and it might have helped. Though, the stories I’ve heard about GPS is lots of times they give crazy directions a lot of the times. 🙂

  1. That happened to me all the time when I first moved here to Victoria. There are no straight roads, and roads change their names randomly. Got lost every single day, but liked to pretend I was teleported…

    • Oh, I know the feeling of getting lost in a new town. Eventually you find your way around with ease. I don’t know why the road developers make such odd streets and names that change for no reason. Yep, I’m saying we got teleported, and I’m sticking to it! haha! 🙂
