Reader Submission: Mirror Horror

“Okay, so it sounds crazy, but this actually happened to me a few months ago.

One night, I woke up, opened my eyes, and looked around. What I saw was my house, but it was…different. It seemed like everything was in the right place, but also not. I looked around for a few minutes, then it hit me: everything was reversed, like in a reflection. Then I looked up and saw the mirror behind the couch I’d been sleeping on.

Dreams, Doppelgangers, and Disappearing Objects

I just stared at him, confused and afraid, and he looked back like ‘why the f are you looking at me like that’”

“At 12 years of age my mom let me stay in the truck as she went grocery shopping. As I wait I see an old Guy walking towards the truck with an indescribable look at me as if I know too much. he stops 5 feet from the truck looks at me for a couple seconds and heads back the exact way he came. it was rather traumatic for some reason and very confusing at that age. 5-6 years later my dad was showing me home videos of us at Yellowstone. At old faithful I noticed the same Guy, same look, same clothes peering at us on camera and at me through the TV. I’m freaked out just telling this.”
