What weird or strange situation or event separates yours from somebody else's

Do you believe in ghosts

If Spring is late does that mean Summer will be too

I was thinking more along the lines of odd, Like looking up the name of a charity team and donating to it anonymously so the leader never finds out, That's odd, I mean weird.

Jams has a No Explanation Policy. It is unfortunate, for how frequently it is actually needed.  

It reminds me of Boston Legal, tv show from a couple years ago.  Love James Spader and his brilliance.

So that would come under:

1. Weird/odd things you do?  2. Weird/odd things that have happened to you recently, this week, this year, ever?  Weird/oddest thing about your life in general?  Weirdest thing about your personality?

But yes the way people don't answer or explain their questions, is telling.

Millions of dollars are given to charities anonymously every year.  It may be unusual, but it really isn't odd or weird.

Jams, i tried that approach, but very few people answered, because they couldn't decipher it. One answer, yours, was about kid biting your son, and the other, Molly's, was about messages from the dead. the commonality was not obvious.

Jams, btw, the way your framed your answer, it sounded like you considered the spirits you believe in similar to ghosts.

Littlemiss, yes, it appears that way about the "no explanation" policy. I keep forgetting.

    Why can't he just say hello, or write you a note?

    What???? I don't take this very lightly on the anniversary of my father's passing. That was very rude.

      A note would be too easy.
      Why would you say this?
