Have you ever expereinced anything weird in your life, like sighting a like monster or seeing a ghost? There was one summer I was at a religious retreat up in Burlington, Vermont, on the shores of Lake Champlain, which divides the north-eastern part of New York from Vermont. Now, Lake Champlain is known to have a monster living in it, a creature locally called Champ. Although sightings are not common, there have been enough to show that something odd is there. So, that summer was hot, and one evening my mother and I went down to the lake to take a swim. At first nothing strange happened, but as the sun went down we started to get an uneasy feeling. Then, out of nowhere I felt something big brush against my leg, and and a huge wave washed over us. It freaked us out so badly that we swam to shore and got the hell out of there. To this day we have no clue what happened. The wave could have been just a natural rouge wave, waves that occur out of the blue, but that dosn't really fly with me. The thing that touched me might have been a fish, but it would have to be a big fish. My theory is that is was Champ coming to investigate two weird creatures in his home. One thing I know for sure is that I will never forget that evening.
