As the owner and creator of Merjeo, I have to come up with some crazy stuff. I grew up in a very colorful family. Over the years, we experienced some wild, crazy and weird happenings. What I am about to tell you is crazy, but it’s a true story.
GET DOWN! The Russians are coming
I once had a Great Aunt, on my Father’s side. She was a very sweat lady, and I loved her with all my heart. I would have done anything for her. However, she was crazy. She was my Grandmother’s sister – the Grandmother who was nuts. Like my Grandmother, she constantly had panic attacks. Unlike my Grandmother, her panic attacks were real, while my Grandmother was just putting on a show. What I’m about to share with you is something you almost had to see to believe. But this is exactly the way it happened.
Several years ago, I went to visit my Great Aunt. The minute I walked through the door, she screamed,
QUICK! GET DOWN! THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING. THEY’RE GONNA GET US!
I said, “WHAT ??????? Are you serious? How can you tell?”
She pointed to the TV screen and said, “That’s how I can communicate with them, and that’s how I know they are coming. I can see ’em!”
Immediately, I got the heck out of that house as fast as I could. A few weeks later, she entered the Sanitarium. They must have performed wonders on her. She was released a few years later, and was still high strung, but not crazy. She had a problem, but it was corrected. I had the opportunity to spend a little time with her before she passed away. I do miss her. If I were to say that she brought a little entertainment to my life, it would be an understatement.
