I had a very bizarre
thing happen on Friday, November 20, 1998. I was at my
daughter's house. While she was at work, my youngest
daughter and I decided to go shopping. I am in the habit
of wearing my watch every day. I had taken the watch off
the night before, as I was doing dishes, etc., and had
put the watch in the spare room on top of a duffel bag
with my clothes in it. The next morning before going into
town to shop, I took a shower, so of course I had not put
my watch on yet.
As my daughter and I were ready to
leave, I went into the bedroom to get the watch, but
could not find it. I thought it might have fallen into
the duffel bag, and half-heartedly attempted to rummage
around in the bag with my hand to find it. I did not find
it, so we decided to leave without it. We had to be back
home by 2:30 p.m., as my grandkids get home from school
My daughter was standing next to me and
saw my bare arm as I felt my arm and said how naked I
felt without the watch. My daughter said we could ask the
time from someone in the store and not to worry about not
having the watch on. The watch has a band that does not
stretch, so it was not possible to push the watch further
up my arm when it was clasped. The clasp is also quite
hard to clasp without using both hands to secure the
watch. The watch fits very tightly.
When we got to the first store, my
daughter asked if I had any hand lotion? I gave her some
from my purse. She did take her wedding rings off to put
the lotion on, and I did not pay attention to what hand
she put the rings back on. However, she swears she put
them back on her left hand. We got to the check-out, and
by habit, again, I went to look at my watch on my left
arm, and, of course, it was not there.
We asked a lady in back of us in line
if she had the time. She said it was 1:00 p.m. We paid
for our purchases and decided we still had time to hit
K-Mart down the street. When we got to K-Mart, we at
first did not take a basket, but soon found we were
carrying a lot of stuff. My daughter stayed with the
packages and I went to get a basket. I took the basket
back to the aisle where my daughter was waiting.
I was getting a little concerned as to
the time again. I touched my arm and began to say,
"Boy! I sure do miss my. . .Yep! The watch was
clasped tightly on my arm. I almost screamed. I had the
funniest feeling in my stomach, like everything had
turned upside down for just a second. My daughter and I
just stared at each other. We did not know what to say.
We finished our shopping and went to the check-out. I
paid for my things and waited for my daughter to pay for
She reached out her hand to pay and her
face turned very white. Even the store clerk looked at
both of us. I asked my daughter what was the matter. As
we were walking out of the store, she showed me her
hands. Her wedding rings were on the wrong hand. She was
totally dumbstruck. Even though she did take the rings
off to put the lotion on, she swears she did put the
rings back on her left hand, not her right.
In and of itself, either of these
incidences could be attributed to forgetfulness, maybe.
But because both the watch incident and the ring incident
were noticed within a half-hour of each other, it seems
quite peculiar. The watch is a wind-up, and I have not
changed the time on it since it reappeared. It says 6:45
p.m. That is right about the time I took the watch off
Thursday night. Too bizarre! It would seem that if I had
put the watch on before going shopping, I would have
changed the time, or at least wound the watch. Also, I
still have that gut feeling that something really strange
did happen. I just can't seem to put my finger on it.
????? Any ideas?
Many abductees have reported that aliens have a fascination with time pieces or wrist watches. Comments made by aliens suggest they are able to manipulate time and are not ruled by it the way we are on earth.
