One night, teenager Brooklyn and I went to the store to grab a few items we needed.
As I was walking down an aisle, I just happened to turn in time to see a loaf of bread shoot off of the bread shelf and land across the aisle. I ignored it and went about my business.
Brooklyn rounded one of the aisles and came walking up behind me, and suddenly I heard a voice. It was a strange, detached sounding voice that whispered, “Wake up, Andy.”
I almost stopped in my tracks. I quickly looked around to see if anyone near me had reacted like they heard a voice, but everyone was going about their business like nothing happened. But when I turned around and saw Brooklyn, I could see the strange look on her face. So I asked her.
“Did you hear something?”
She looked at me and silently nodded..
I didn’t want to influence her on what I thought I heard, so I simply asked her, “What did it say?”
“It said, ‘Wake up, Andy.’”
I knew she heard it too. But why?
