Today was interesting, to say the least! We went out to lunch with some people who are going to be moving to CA and Germany at the same time as us. I have to say, it is insanely nice to know people who will be with us the whole way through. It is even better that they are really cool, nice people who I think we will have a great time with!
You're probably wondering why I titled this post "Insanity." Well, while we were eating lunch at a lovely Indian buffet, we got to talking about Anna's little OCD-ish tendencies (she is definitely her mother's daughter!). I mentioned that Anna freaks out to the point of almost crying if a door is left ajar and no one closes it the instant she notices. It just so happens, that the couple sitting at a table across from us managed to hear that little tidbit. Later, during lunch the woman comes over and informs us that she sees ghost/spirits (she used the word interchangeably), and has since she was five years old. The first time she saw a spirit it was her recently departed grandmother, and she came out of her closet! She then told her parents that her Grandma was not really dead just sleeping (anyone else ridiculously perplexed?! I had to make a conscious effort to not make a lovely, "What the heck?!" face). She shared this with us because she suspected that Anna shared her "gift." I tried to explain that Anna is just extremely particular and I don't think she's seen any spirits yet. In case you didn't know, I am a magnet for all weird/creepy people. I was looking over my old blog from my internship in Germany, and man were there some funny stories about creepy people approaching me! I'm sure this is simply the first of many creepy experiences to be shared on this blog ;).
