The Parking Garage

Debbie, from California, had a TWIDDER that is hard to categorize; was it an Alternative Reality spacetime slip, a brief Forward to the Future experience, or even a Back to the Past time slip???  (See Cynthia Sue Larson’s

One afternoon a friend and I went to see “Opera in the Park” in San Francisco.  We had parked on the second floor in a busy parking garage.  As always, we each made a mental note of where we parked.

We returned about four hours later, and began walking up to the level we parked in.  We both commented on how weird it was that there were no cars anywhere, and how everything seemed so quiet for a very busy downtown day.

We arrived at the second floor and noticed there were no cars to be found, including ours.  We figured we were in error, 300px-Free_Parkingand commented on how odd it was for us both to be wrong about where we parked.

We proceeded up to the third floor, to our amazement, no cars.  We were beginning to feel uncomfortable about this; I said jokingly, “We are either in the wrong parking garage, or in the Twilight zone.”

The fourth floor began to show some cars, but not ours.  Finally on the fifth floor, much to our relief was full of cars, including ours.  We felt happy to find the car, but were so baffled by our experience.

We then proceeded to drive down to the exit, then by sheer horror noticed that every floor level was full of cars!  We were both quite bewildered.

I wanted to go back to reevaluate what we had experienced, but my friend was emphatically against it.  Normally, I would have attributed this experience to a glitch in my brain.  The fact that two of us experienced this brought even more validity to it.

I know for certain that we used the same entrance of the garage, same elevator section, and used all the same doors.  We could also see around the whole level of whatever floor we were on.  It was not staggered.  I will never know what really happened that day.  These are things that make you go, “Hummmmm.”

We live in a wondrous universe, and I love learning about it. Spacetime slips are one facet of existence that fascinate me. As a retired teacher I enjoy researching this topic and sharing the information I garner.
