For what it's worth erorr, I believe you.
The weirdness of it rings true to me.
Especially the way you all reacted, and the sudden drowseyness and afterwards how everyone seems to want to forget what happened or even have a sort of amnesia with it.
Tell me, when you were posting the story or when you try to go over the story, do you feel a sort of spaceyness, drowsiness, 'forget about it' feeling come over you?
That would happen with me a-lot when I would try to work out the details of just what the heck happened to me.
Like I was given a post hypnotic suggestion to zone out if I tried to remember details more clearly.
As you can see, I had similar kinds of things happen long ago.
Most probably WHY I believe you..I see things I relate to in your story..especially the confused, weirdness factor..I realize that you see..what most people who haven't had such an encounter don't see..how having something SO WEIRD happen can confuse and throw off your senses as it happens..
"what am I seeing?"..'what am I hearing?".."WTF??!!".."I am scared, excited..but..mostly..CONFUSED"
The bulk, certainly the most dramatic of 'my stuff' happened so long ago now they don't even feel relevent to me (which actually feels like a post hypnotic, or maybe even subliminal, telepathic, at this point suggestion to me, even..'let it go,now')
Though, it did shape who I am..my beliefs..in mostly that I realized..genuinely 'things are not as they seem' in this life/world/reality..
I actually lived in Fishkill for a while a long, long time ago and some stuff happened with me there. (but not my most dramatic stuff)

What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
