My wife and I have a porch in front of our home, it’s not a high porch, two steps, with a ramp on one side. Yesterday, I walked up to it to go into the house and lazily threw an apple core I had just finished underneath [compost] it must have hit something when I chucked it under there because it came flying back out immediately. I thought, that’s odd, but didn’t give it another thought and just slowly slid it back under the porch. No problem right? It will feed either the earth or some lucky racoon in the middle of the night.
This morning my wife and I got up to go for a walk and when we walked outside the core was on top of the railing that comes up to the doorway. Puzzled, I looked at my wife and she gave me a dubious glare said, “did you put that there??”
No I put it under the porch, for an animal to eat. So I dropped it back down next to the bushes sure I would not see it again. We got on with our day and were no worse for wear. This evening we pulled into the driveway and the core was back on the railing. How the holy hell did it get back onto the railing? I picked it up and glanced at it and did not see any chew marks or other such animal markings… Because we were only home for a brief period, I left it back on the porch railing [mostly out of curiosity] to see if anything would come back and eat it. Now it’s 8pm and my wife and I just got home, and the friggin apple core is now on the opposite railing?
Anyone can explain that one to me I’ll give them a thousand cyber bucks and a healthy dose of good karma/positive vibes.
I’m thinking Troll, gnome, or some other oddity. An animal wouldn’t do that right? I’m usually a rational guy, but this bit of tomfoolery I am completely baffled by.
