Jean K's Experience

Experience description:   

We always went to my Mother's and help prepare holiday dinner. I was standing against the door going into the kitchen, just talking and laughing with everyone in the kitchen, family and I saw myself on the other side of the room sitting on the steps, peeling potatoes and talking and laughing, but I could not hear what I was saying and all I could do was point at myself. Of course everyone laughed and said yea right, but I could not explain it, didn't know why, how or anything only how strange I felt at the time. Everyone laughed it off and I though no more about it until about hour later, I was actually sitting on the steps peeling potatoes, and it was like I felt a shock, jolt and I realized that where I was, what I had seen an hour earlier.
