My candle holder is NOT possessed

I was at the docotor's today and they were taking a survey to see what we thought the earthquake "was" when it happened at 4:30 this morning. It turns out that there four votes for thinking that a particular object was "possessed" (there was one vote for a toranado).

When we woke up to our free standing wraught iron candle holder vibrating on the dresser Jake went to check it out, in a very sleepy state. "Is it an earthquake?" I ask. He takes all of the candles off, puts them back on, gets back into bed and says "its just the candleholder". He promptly falls back to sleep. I have trouble sleeping because I'm just sure that "something" has overtaken my candleholder. A special thanks to my small group who talked about demon possession this week...

I've never been so glad to receive a phone call prior to 7am from a concerned friend checking to see if we were okay. I'm was also glad to hear him say that there was in fact an earthquake!

I'm glad to hear that I am not the only person (other then Megan) who was a little freaked out. ~Kyle slept through it and now says it is cool ~I pulled the "little kid" thing and went into my parents room where my dad promptly said in a sleepy voice, "It was just an earthquake, go back to bed." I said JUST an earthquake! It is nice to know that I am not alone!

That is a riot! "It's just the candle holder". One time Derek was so dead asleep and his alarm was going off, he answered his phone. I still think that is hysterical.

I thought demon possession was only for real items... like living things...

On the other hand... I woke up and heard my mom say, "Donde esta tus zapatos? Si hay mas, necesitamos salir." See... I've only experienced earthquakes when I was in CR and I woke up thinking I was there and my host mom was "talking" to me. Yeah I was pretty tired at 4:38am. :-)

Did it ever occur to you that perhaps it WAS just the candle holder. And that the "Media" got it wrong?

The good thing is your husband is willing to get out of bed in the middle of the night and check things out. Once he is confident in his assessment, ha can fall back into peaceful slumber!

Okay! I could not go to sleep last night because I kept laughing out loud about this scene and Derek and answering his phone!

probably should get rid of the candles, just in case.

I know Sara! Those are really funny visuals! I laughed about the phone forever.

I told Derek about what Jake did and he didn't even laugh. He's no fun!
