It was quiet.
The boys were at school.
It was a milder day than usual, so even the cats were outside.
I'd done my chores for the morning and was deep in a novel when the guitar on the wall across from me plucked two notes.
One right after the other.
I looked at it.
No one was around.
No explanations at all.
I googled for scientific explanations. Was it the atmosphere? We'd had a lot of rain. I didn't find any logical answers.
I remembered my maternal grandfather always used to tell a story of attending the funeral of Uncle Bill and hearing a banjo play 2-3 notes at the wake. I asked my mom if this was one of his tall tales. She said no, that she was there too when that happened.
So I actually have a genetic heritage of hearing guitars play notes on their own. It's in my genes.
How's that for scientific explanations?
Readers, you got any similar strange happenings to tell me?
