Have you ever had something happen that you remember, but no one else does? It’s a weird feeling to have, and you think there has to be some reason, some explanation for why they don’t remember it. Did the incident happen in an alternate reality? Were you the only one that actually did see it? Did your memory play tricks on you, or was it just a dream? I’ve heard of screen memories, where you have one memory of something, to cover up a real incident that was traumatic. Well, I’m not sure what this one was, but here’s what I remember…
I was just a kid at the time. It was the middle of the night, and as usual, I was up by myself, looking out the windows at the stars, and hoping to see a UFO. Yeah, I was a weird kid, into all kinds of strange thoughts and having crazy experiences with the paranormal…and, I still am.
So, I was looking at the sky, when I saw the fireballs. They weren’t in the sky, but right across the street from our house. There were huge, orange balls of fire, poofing up from the telephone pole behind that house over there. One after another, they’d travel up the pole, then a big explosion at the top into a giant fireball.
After a little while, the whole neighborhood was awake, and there were firetrucks, and people watching what would happen. With so much commotion going on, you’d think everyone would remember that night. But, no…no one I asked, not my family, nor the neighbors, ever remembered such a thing happening.
I know that the transformers on telephone poles do explode and catch fire sometimes, and I’ve seen pictures on the news of this. But, the fireballs I saw that night were not even close to being a normal type of transformer malfunction. It was just the one pole, and no fire was ignited anywhere else in the area.
So, I’m left with this fireball memory, which will never be explained.
Have you had something happen, that you swear was real, but nobody else remembers?
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
