Virginia P's Experience

Experience description:   

When I was approximately 3 years old. I wanted to play with my mothers hair dryer, she gave it to me to sit and play on the floor, but she told me NOT to try to plug it in. She went to the kitchen table and continued having coffee and talking with my father. Apparently from what I can remember,( so much is hard to remember clearly, as I was so young) I didn't listen and started plugging it in, I think I remember a spark but I am not sure. At that exact moment I heard the deepest voice I have ever heard say "Don't do that" and when I looked to my right I saw outside the window this man all in white staring at me, then it was gone. My mother said I came screaming to her pointing at the window saying "that man, that man", she said I was terrified. She said my father went out and looked around the whole house and found no one. I do remember after that if I would see a religious picture anywhere, with people dressed in white robes or picture of angels I do remember thinking "that's what that was". I also was very afraid of plug ins for a lot of my childhood after this. It was such a weird experience, I wish it would not have faded so much over the years, I wish I could remember it more clearly now. But I have thought about it so much all my life and had the feelings of "what the heck was that".
