Rhyanna of Chicago, Illinois had a Back to the Past spacetime slip in wintery Chicago. I wonder if she alone experienced this, or if other folks passing the exact same locale at the same time also wondered what had happened to the under-construction building. And, I can’t help but agree with her that the universe does indeed have a unique sense of humor! (See original posting at RealityShifters.com)
I was working in downtown Chicago at the beginning of this year. In January, I went out at my lunch hour to walk to the drugstore.
On the way I passed the intersection of Franklin and Madison where a new building had been going up. I recalled having seen the building under construction two weeks earlier, when I’d walked down to meet my daughter for lunch.
As I glanced to see how the building was progressing, I was stunned to see that it was not there. I stopped dead in my tracks, and gazed at the empty lot that stood where the construction site had been just two weeks ago.
There is a parking lot at Franklin and Monroe, so I checked the street signs and looked around, and then decided I must be either having a reality shift or losing my grip. I know it’s not a wise thing to stop dead on a busy Chicago street, but I felt the building being gone was a good reason to do so.
In late February I once again walked down Franklin to meet my daughter for lunch, and looked to see the empty lot—and lo and behold there was the building again—getting very, very tall!
Sometimes I think the universe has a very warped sense of humor.
