The Ouija and the Fly
One cold winter night my husband and I decided to play with a ouija board. It was snowing and we had nothing better to do. Neither of us really believed in it and it was just some silly entertainment for us. We didn’t know any better back then. Anyway, after a few minutes the pointer began to move around. It answered our questions and seemed to know things it shouldn’t. We questioned each other if one of us was moving it. Both of us said no, but I think we both thought the other person had to have been moving it knowingly or not. After accurately answering more questions, my husband decided to test it in a way that I could not influence it. He said, “move that newspaper into the third cubby hole.” There was no answer and we both chuckled but continued playing. After about 10 minutes or so, a fly came out of nowhere and started to loudly buzz all around us. It was a huge pest and very annoying. We both thought it was weird because mostly, flies die off in the winter, and this one was huge. My husband reached for something and tried to swat it. He missed and we could not locate the fly again. He shrugged it off and set the item down. We then started playing again, and almost immediately the board spelled out, “Ha ha, look at the newspaper now.” Much to our surprise, the item my husband reached for was the newspaper we had asked the ouija board to move earlier, and my husband unknowingly placed it down in the third cubby hole, just as we asked the ouija board to do.
