A strange story that tells of a seemingly friendly ghost keeping an eye on a young man feeding the ducks. What do we make of this tale?
My parents used to take me to feed the ducks at our local park. I would stand there and throw bread to the ducks and it was usually a lot of fun. However, just the once, something strange happened. I was throwing my bread when an older gentleman walked out in front of me and asked me if I wanted to see a trick. I nodded. He did that trick with his hand where he makes it look like his thumb has been detached from his hand. I thought it was marvellous and giggled away.
My dad, who had been sitting on a bench came over and asked me what was so funny. I turned to dad and told him that this man had been showing me this trick where his thumb seemed to come away from his hand. Dad looked puzzled.
I looked back and the man had disappeared. I looked across the park but couldn’t see him. He had been standing in front of me, solidly, showing me the trick and then disappeared. It was the strangest thing.
