Having a canopy bed is usually a dream come true for girls of a certain age. It makes them feel like a princess, and that’s never a bad thing. Of course, they also create the perfect separation from the monsters that love to creep around childhood bedrooms when the lights are off, such as this old lady who stands next to the bed.
Is it likely that this old lady is actually a piece of clothing that got hung up, or a shadow, or something else of that ilk? Very.
It's Like a Second-Act Twist
Seeing your deceased grandparents standing outside the window watching you is usually not a good thing, especially if they passed away before you were born, but let's put a positive spin on this. Since the grandparents didn't do anything, it could be easily surmised that they were just checking in on the little one to make sure she was growing up big and strong.
Having a couple of friendly guardian angels is always better than some of the other creatures that have been named on this list.
New Rule: No Talking to Children I Don't See
The worst part about this story is that the little girl clearly does not want her mom listening in on the conversation. She stood up to close the door right after her mom told her there was no boy, and the conversation continued as if she had never been interrupted.
We kind of want to know what they were talking about. Were they discussing the best place to hide from parents? Or was it something closer to “which Pokemon is the absolute coolest”? Given that they were good kids, there's a pretty good chance it was the latter. Though not a hundred percent.
A Final Goodbye
Getting the stories straight from the kids always makes them seem a little more real. It isn't parents juicing up the story or not remembering. If the kids grow up and can still remember what happened, you know it was real.
Shao Trommashere was fifteen when her grandfather died, but she was at home asleep. Grandpa called out her name, appearing in the bedroom. He put the stuffed dog he had won her on the bed and said goodbye. While Shao was certainly dwelling on the idea of her grandfather's passing this is still a wonderful moment to remember him by.
Talking With the Mister
Dogs are just like children to some. The person who tweeted it has a fur baby who talks to the departed husband. Bulldogs are talkers and like to make noise, even if the person they are talking to is no longer with us.
But the last-second twist tells us that the pup and the guy have never met – he died more than a year before the puppy was adopted. And yet still the dog throws her ball at the chair. Seems a bit like a horror story to us. The wife, still grieving. The new dog, picking up on that grief. It can make for a great film or book.
