weather report from the other side?

As some of you know, my apartment has had its share of, shall we say, unexplainable events. I won't go into them here since they are old news and they could yet be fodder for slow posting days to come.
But this morning, shortly after the alarm went off, I was lying in the darkness enjoying the drift of thoughts that mark the period between waking up and actually obtaining the courage to leave the warm cocoon of blankets and body heat.
And right next to me, a woman's voice clearly said "Brrrrrrrr".
No, nobody slept over - I would have remembered that. Hopefully would have even enjoyed it as well.
I also realize that it is difficult to clearly hear the monosyllabic utterance of a single sound with no vowels associated.
But it was there.
First time around here that a manifestation (if I can really call it that) has been audible.
Now I'm creeped out and intrigued all at the same time.

favorite george carlin quote

If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.

Ain't that the truth.
