Missing Time and Green Slime


clockLosing track of time is a common occurrence for many people. You get busy doing something and before you know it – hours have passed. Have you ever had a span of time that you are not able to track what you were doing? Ever suddenly become aware of your surrounding only to realize that you have lost a block of time and are not where you were?

I have had several occasions of sleep walking where I have awakened and been outside the house without knowledge of how I got outside. I have gotten up in the morning and found my feet covered with dirt and grass but as far as I knew, I had slept all night without getting up. There have even been a couple of times that I have awakened to discover that I was in my truck sitting in the parking lot of Wal-mart. Talk about a scary experience. In this article, I am talking about more than just sleep walking – I am talking about missing blocks of time when you are wide awake. I have experienced missing blocks of time where I can’t explain where I was or what happened during those times. Two occurrences stand out in my mind and I am going to share those experiences.

fairA Night at the Fair:

The year after I graduated from high school, I went to the local fair and spent some time hanging out with my friends. I was only 18 years old and I had a midnight curfew. My friends had to leave after a short amount of time and I left just a short time after they did – probably around 9:30 p.m. There really wasn’t much to do in the little town of Huntsville, Arkansas back in 1997, so I decided just to go on home. We lived around 13 miles from town so I should have been home in 30 minutes or less.

green slimeI remember leaving town … then I was pulling into my parents’ drive and it was almost 1:00 a.m. Doing the math, I was missing almost 3 hours of time. I double checked the mileage and gas level of my car and I had not driven anywhere extra during the missing hours. I had to go to the bathroom shortly after I got home and had a strange green slime come out … from both holes. I slept most of the day, feeling extremely drained of energy – and continued expelling the green slimy mucus for a day or two.

I could not explain to my parents why I was late getting home, where I was, or who I had been with. I figure my parents thought I was out with a boy since I couldn’t tell them anything. At the time, I wasn’t dating anyone and was honest when I told my parents that I wasn’t out with a guy. I was grounded for a while after that.

newspaperEarly Morning Missing:

Just a couple years ago (in 2010) I was up early in the morning, getting ready to go deliver newspapers. I went out to start my truck and went back inside to get something. When I walked back outside, I heard a strange humming noise so I stopped before getting in my truck and was looking around. The next thing I remember, I was sitting in my truck and a little over an hour had passed.

I left for work and ended up having to stop at a gas station (around 7 miles from my parents’ house) to go to the bathroom. Once again, I had the nasty green slime come out of both holes when I went to the bathroom. I had to stop several times while delivering newspapers to go to the bathroom. Once again, I felt drained of energy for a couple days. Once again, I could not explain what happened during the missing time.


To this day I can still not explain what happened during the missing time. I also have no clue what the green slime was but I have had a couple occurrences with the green slime, other than the two I mention in this story. I am not claiming that I was abducted by aliens … but I am not ruling it out either. I guess these are experiences that will remain a mystery. Believe it or not – it happened to me.
