What is that thing?

When I started this blog I thought I would have a lot to say. It turns out that is not the case. Today I decided I was going to think back to the past and see if I could find something to write about.

It was late at night, I walked out on the porch to let my dog out to take care of business before going to bed.

I saw something strange hovering near the window of the neighbor’s house across the street. I had a feeling in the pit of my stomach like I had never experienced before.

After a few seconds I called my husband to come and look at what I was seeing. I asked if he could tell what it was, he had no idea.

The first thing I thought of was something from outer space had finally landed. It was round in shape with what looked like two very bright eyes. It would move a little ways up and down and then bounce around from side to side, constantly slowly moving.

I watched it for a few minutes while waiting for my dog to be ready to come back inside, really hoping he would hurry up. I wanted to get inside and lock the door just in case that was a being like I had never encountered before.

The next morning I got up early and looked outside to see if the thing was still around. Sure enough it was still there hovering near the window, but it had moved a little nearer to the edge of the window.

My husband and I got a big laugh when we finally was able to see what it was. Someone somewhere had a birthday party and a mylar (foil) balloon had floated to the neighbors yard. The string attached to it was tangled in a shrub and that is what kept the balloon there.

The moon was shining and that was what caused the two things on the balloon to look like eyes.

If I ever do encounter a being from another planet I think I may know what it will feel like in the pit of my stomach after that experience.

        1. For a second I thought about asking my husband to walk over there, but that thought went away quickly. I decided it was best to lock the door and hope it would go away. He would have gone over there, no doubt and I didn’t want anything happening to him. At least we both was relieved and got a big laugh in the morning.
