Everything But

While sitting at his desk Sunday morning, San Geraldo glanced out the window and noticed something really strange.

"Mitchell?" He called out. "Can you come look at this? And bring your camera."

I headed over and looked where he was pointing. "Do you see that?!?"

I looked across the street to an apartment across the way — an apartment that had never before allowed us a glimpse inside. I gasped.

There in clear view was a hooded or masked head with a glowing eye. It seemed to be leaning forward toward a computer screen. It was extremely creepy.

San Geraldo asked, "Do you see a head with two glowing eyes?"

I looked back in his direction and said, "Put on your glasses."

Then we both saw a head with one large glowing eye.

I snapped a series of photos of the alien and quickly downloaded them. I needed proof before we reported it.

I said, "Maybe it's Freddy Kruger. Did he wear a yellow mask?"

What I saw once I zoomed in was even more shocking.

WE HAD IMAGINED EVERYTHING. WELL, EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK.
DISH RAGS DRAPED OVER FAUCETS CAN BE FRIGHTENING. ANOTHER REASON FOR ME TO AVOID KITCHENS.


Hey, Mr. Spaceman!

      No. After I wrote this, I wondered if the images had been changed before I dowloaded them.

      Not a chance. Besides, even if it really IS a kitchen, it clearly needs some upgrades.

  3. It won't be long before someone peculiar knocks on your door and asks to be taken to your "leader."

  6. That was funny! I am blind as a bat anything more than three feet in front of me. I have seen some pretty strange things over the years too. ;)

      I started wearing reading glasses for 40-year-old eyes. Now I couldn't possibly have seen that without my glasses. Maybe I would have been happier.

  7. Those kitchen sinks just lurk in the shadows. That is a terrific optical illusion. Thanks for the tune, too - it got a pesky earworm out of my head.

      I'm pleased with my recreation of Jerry's initially blurry vision. I'm also pleased they've put the blinds back down.

      It was even better that we BOTH saw the same thing. I'm so glad they've put the blinds back down.
