During the summer of 2008, I was Ontario, Canada, in a small city called Kingston. I was walking with my godmother down one of the main streets, where there are a lot of shops, restaurants, etc. Anyway, we walked into a little store where you could buy cards, games, and little novelty gifts. After spending 15 or 20 minutes in the store, we decided to leave so that we could meet my parents for lunch. When we left the store, both my godmother and I felt very strange. It's hard to describe, but we felt that something was strikingly different about the street. The light had changed strikingly, leaving it a very creepy white, and air felt somehow thinner, and colder. It seemed like the street was wider. The stores were the same, and the people on the street all looked perfectly normal, but something didn't feel "right". In some weird way, it felt a little bit like a movie set. Just a bit too bright and sterile for real life. When I told my godmother about my strange feeling, she said that she felt it too. Though we could both sense that something had changed, we couldn't place what exactly it was. Since that day, we've talked a lot about that incident, and we still can't place what happened. It was definitely among the strangest things that has ever happened to me (or my godmother) so far.
