Two Strange Happenings... - by Jason J.

I'm not saying I believe in ghosts, but these are a couple incidents that happened to me and my parents recently that remain unexplained. The following happened at my parents' house and we were all sitting down to watch the baseball game on their TV.

Suddenly, in the kitchen, which is adjacent to the family room where we were all seated, we heard the kitchen water faucet gradually come on. The flow of the water increased until it freely streamed into the sink. As it happened, it was as if someone was lifting the handle on the faucet casually turning the water on...but no one was there. Three people witnessed it, live, in real-time...and it made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.

My step-dad got up off the couch to turn the water off. We were all sort of shocked by the odd occurrence. It happened only one time (on a Sunday). It was the first time anything like that ever happened in their house and hasn't happened since...that is, with the water faucet.

Some days later, something ghostly-odd happened again at my parents' house. We were, once again, watching another baseball game. My step-dad and my mom were in the kitchen, and I was sitting, chatting away with them in conversation in the family room. Suddenly, we realized the TV channel was changed...We had the baseball game on (it was in the middle of the game) and then we realized it had spontaneously changed, by itself, to the Titanic movie on a completely different channel! My step dad asked who changed the channel. I explained to him and my mom that the TV remote control was sitting on the coffee table on the other side of the room the whole time. No one in the house had touched it -- no one human, that is!

It seems as though this ghost doesn't like baseball games, that or maybe there's a message it has regarding baseball. This may be a stretch but I've also noticed that both things the ghost did had to do with water. A faucet being turned on, and the Titanic sinking in water.
