JUST BECAUSE I'M PARANOID DOESN'T MEAN I'M NOT ACTUALLY BEING WATCHED or ONCE YOU'VE EXPERIENCED PAREIDOLIA, THERE'S NO END TO IT!!

YAAAAAY, I'm a seashell!!

Have you ever walked down the street, only to be surprised by a happy little face you see in the concrete? Or the parking meter? Seeing faces in inanimate objects or when things look like other things (for a moment, anyway) is called pareidoliaAfter you see this, you'll be spotting faces in everything!! 



And they're not always happy to watch me!!

And it's not just people!!
Everything is watching me!!:

From soft drink cans

To seats

Trash cans

And toothbrush holders

Boxes try to hide

Even mop handles watch me

Electrical boxes can be sneaky

Cupboards are not to be trusted

Backpacks are not my friend

Nor are dials

Beware of cheese graters

And baskets

And electrical outlets

Seat belts act silly so you won't think they're watching

Faces lurk in lumberyards

And on ships


Buildings can team up on you

I think I surprised these tall ones

I'm pretty sure even my purse is mad at me

This was too much

I checked into a hotel to hide

And have a quick snack

I was so scared I ran into the bathroom to upchuck

No--not the toilet paper, too!!

Then I ran back outside to catch my breath
& found I can never trust a tree


I got in my car & tried to get away, but that didn't work either.
Cars are the worst!!

  1. I see faces in things, but you've seen way more than me.
    When I worked in the shoe factory, part of my job was to put laces in the shoes. Laces came in bundles of fifty pairs, with elastic bands at both ends to hold the bundle together until needed. Some laces were two-toned and if you looked at the end of the bundle, each lace appeared to have a single eye. I freaked out a new trainee one day by showing her the 'eyes' and telling her aliens are real, the laces are watching us.

  8. So that's what it's called when someone sees Elvis's face in a piece of toast.

  9. This reminds me of that Lowe's commercial with the stuffed kangaroo protecting her baby from the "scary octopus" door hook.

  10. Very impressive.
    But please remember, just because you don't see any faces looking at you, doesn't mean that you're not being watched.

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
