I swear I didn't cause this to happen, trust me.
I think it is eerily weird because I wrote about how we are supposed to trust our government to make sure our bridges are safe and while I was writing this I thought to myself, maybe I should not write this, what if another bridge collapses. But I figured I better write it because it is true that most of our infrastructure is old and breaking down and more bridges will be collapsing and people need to know.
But the reason it is scary about me writing this is because I would predict earthquakes and I see ghosts. People would ask me to do this once they found out that I could and was correct about 95% of the time. Many years ago I went to a chiropractors office every two weeks and was friendly with the receptionist. She was all into psychics and weird things and somehow we got into a conversation about how I could do this. She did not believe me, so she asked me to give her a date. I actually never knew where I would get these dates, they would just appear in my brain somehow. So I gave her a date, but I said that this quake would not be here in the U.S. but somewhere else, it was going to be a big one and sadly a lot of people were going to die. She said she did not believe me, and since the date I gave her was in a few months she would tease me with each visit. She was from India and did believe I see ghosts but not the prediction thing. And when the date came there was a very large earthquake and many, many people did die. The strange thing was that the earthquake happened in India.
I had my appointment on that day and when I went into the office she looked at me with fear in her eyes and ran into another room. She would not come out while I was there. Usually people would look at me with a look of disbelief and think there was no way that I could do this but most of my friends knew I had done it too many times to not say something was strange about me, but no one had ever looked at me with utter fear as if I was in cahoots with the devil. It was a strange experience because my being able to do this was pretty normal and not much different then seeing ghosts.
Well, I guess you can probably figure out what happened when I went to my next appointment, the young girl had quit her job. They said they did not know why but she had quit the day of my last appointment. I think she had some real trust issues with me.
I decided that it was best if I stopped predicting anymore, but I did get talked into it once more by my youngest daughter saying that she could do it too. She gave a date of when one would occur and I just had to tell her she was wrong, that it was going to come two days later. I am proud of her for trying and she was close, just off by two days. Now I try not to think about them, they will come when they come. But those dang ghosts still keep showing up. My daughters see them and the grandkids see them too. I would tell you some ghost stories but I will save that for another time, although there are a few in some older posts.
