I think I saw a ghost today.
Either that or a really vivid hallucination
Really don’t know which but hope it was the first.
The latter would not be as good.
I stepped out of my office building for a smoke and as I passed this truck (with fireman license plates) I caught out of the corner of my eye a figure standing right by the truck.
He was a pit portly, stocky, about 6 foot with sandy blonde hair and a round head. His hair was short but not cropped and it was plain and not styled. Like your average good ol boy hat hair “I don’t care what my hair looks like” kind of style.
He was wearing a plain blue sweatshirt that was a darker blue then his faded blue jeans and white sneakers. He was standing there staring at me with his hands in his pockets.
I whirled around (yes I whirled, all spy-like)
No one was there.
No door was closing.
No sound was made.
No person crouched in the corner.
I was alone (well physically at least)
I think I can pick this guy out of a line up.
I can see his face in my mind’s eye but at the same time I can’t see it.
Now as I write this some time has passed since the event. An hour or 2
The figure and face has coalesced into that of a guy I used to work with long ago.
I can’t even remember where I used to work with him at.
I couldn’t tell you his name but I can picture him well.
Now I am confused…
Was it just my mind playing tricks on me?
Did I really see something and my mind has blended it with a prior memory?
Or maybe the figure was the guy I used to work with that guy has since passed?
I don’t know.
