This is the weirdest one yet. Tywana and I are doing a show tomorrow. We haven’t done a show in at least two years. We’ve been so busy, we haven’t had time to get ready for it. It was just today I decided to look for the credit card reader to attach to my iPhone. We both looked everywhere we could think to look. It was not to be found. With the checkbook? Nope. On the shelf in my office? Nope. In the bag we carried to our shows? Nope. In the kitchen in the junk drawer. I’m pretty sure I saw it there. Nope.
So, I get online and look to see where the Square is sold. I hate to pay for something I can get for free, but it’s my fault for waiting until the last minute. They’ll send one in the mail, free, but it takes 10 days to get here. I Google where they are sold. Meijer. No problem. I shower and do my meditation. I come down to the kitchen to grab my wallet and keys and Tywana calls up to me from the basement. I’m just on my way out. It’s almost 4:30 on a Friday. Traffic’s going to be horrible. I just want to get out and get back. Can’t this wait? I head downstairs.
Tywana tells me she has found the reader. I figure it must have been in one of the drawers near her desk. No. It was on the couch that we sit on to watch TV. It was under the pillow. She was folding t-shirts to take to the show and had been stacking them on the pillow. We had given up on finding the reader. She picked up the cushion to fluff it (I don’t know why- she fluffs pillows). Under the pillow she saw what she thought was the instruction sheet for the reader. It was actually the package with the reader in it.
We haven’t used the reader in at least two years. Many people have sat on that couch watching TV in the meantime. There is no reason it would have been on the couch to begin with. If she hadn’t moved the pillow, who knows when we would have found it? What led her to move the pillow? Was it there all along?
I always look for the rational explanation first. I can find none. Was this an apport? (In parapsychology and spiritualism, an apport is the alleged paranormal transference of an article from one place to another, or an appearance of an article from an unknown source that is often associated with poltergeist activity or séances.) I truly do not know. I’ve heard of apports. I know several people who say they’ve gotten them. I certainly did not expect one. But, it was a pretty nice birthday present. If you did this, Shayna, good job!
