S1E23 - Spooky Stories w/ the Bewitches (Part 1)

Episode Description:

It is almost Halloween! My absolute favorite holiday. To celebrate, I am joined by my girls and we share some spooky stories. Oddly, during this episode, we kept experiencing some inconvenient technical difficulties. A coincidence? I hope so! The episode isn’t that scary, but if you get spooked easily like me, make sure to watch some good, wholesome Disney movies afterwards! LOL! Let me know on social media if you have ever had anything spooky happen to you. How did you react? I’d love to hear all about it!


Some parts of the transcript may be edited for better readability, but the content remains the same. Mostly removed duplicate words, vocal filler words, and added/removed some words for clarification.


Hey, everyone! This is Meliza, and I'm the Talkative Introvert. We have finally reached my favorite time of the year, which is fall. And I got a special episode with my girls this week. And I wanted to give a little backstory in case you're wondering about the name. So, I put in the title, 'Spooky stories with the bewitches'. And so, that came about because in our Snapchat and Instagroup, Instagroup? Instagram group chat, I think it was Bailey. And she texted everyone and was like, "What's up, b*tches" but then it came out... it got autocorrected to bewitches. But we've just kept the name since then. And I just thought it was very befitting for this episode. So, anyways. So, before we get into the episode, there are parts of the episode that might be a little difficult to listen to. We kept running into some technical difficulties. So, we had to cut some stuff out and figured out the audio situation a few times during the episode. Which made things even spookier. So, you'll see when you get to those parts. All right, let's get into the episode.

Katrina 01:21

I can hear that when you do that too.

Meliza Manalo 01:23

When I do what? Cuss?

Katrina 01:24

On the podcast. When you move the thing.

Meliza Manalo 01:27

Oh yeah, I need to stop doing that. But that's why I have that chair. Because when I do my podcasts, I'm always playing on something. I need like a fidget spinner. But not the fidget spinner.

Katrina 01:39

Maybe the cube then.

Meliza Manalo 01:40

Yeah, I need the cube. But it needs to not make a clicking noise. (Laughter)

Bailey 01:45

You're so high maintenance.


Meliza Manalo 01:48

I'm not.

Bailey 01:49

You're not. Oh, we're recording.

Meliza Manalo 01:49

She's just like... (Laughter)

Leah 01:53

High maintenance in a weird way. It's our particularness, you know?

Meliza Manalo 01:57

Yeah. Our particularness.

Bailey 01:58

Oh, yeah yeah yeah.

Leah 01:59

That's why people think I'm high maintenance. I swear I'm not.

Bailey 02:02

Back upon...

Meliza Manalo 02:02

I'm not. We're not.

Leah 02:04

I'm a toe stepper.

Bailey 02:05


Meliza Manalo 02:06

I'm gonna start the episode. (Laughter) Are you guys ready?

Leah 02:13

That's the start of the episode. (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 02:18

All right, joining with me today is Bailey Kat... Sorry (Laughter) a.k.a. Casey, Leah a.k.a Louie. And we've all done an episode. Well, we haven't done one together.

Bailey 02:32

For four of us this is the first!

Katrina 02:34


Meliza Manalo 02:34

Yeah. So, this is the first for the four of us. But Louie has one, Casey has one and Bailey has one with Casey. So, go check those out. Today's episode is a Halloween special.

Everybody 02:46

Wooo (Everybody making a spooky voice)

Leah 02:51

I thought about getting like Halloween sounds for this.

Meliza Manalo 02:55

I know.

Leah 02:56

But then I didn't.

Meliza Manalo 02:57

Like soundboard.

Bailey 02:59

Oh, you should edit one in.

Leah 03:00


Meliza Manalo 03:00

In the future. I'm not that quite advanced.

Bailey 03:04

Mmmm. Yeah.

Meliza Manalo 03:05

Maybe someday.

Leah 03:05

Let's look stuff up on YouTube.

Bailey 03:07

I was just about to say. Let's look it up on YouTube.

Meliza Manalo 03:09

That's how I've done this whole podcast.

Katrina 03:12

Hey, sometimes I do that. It's like for my YouTube, I'll just like search up a sound and then put that sound, record it with my phone. And then send it to my email. (Laughter)

Bailey 03:23

That's called thinking outside the box.

Leah 03:26


Bailey 03:26

Just get it done.

Meliza Manalo 03:28

So, this would be like where we insert like the thunder. (Making thunder sound)

Bailey 03:32

And like the cackling of the witch.

Meliza Manalo 03:34


Bailey 03:36

I'm not good at it. (Laughter)

Leah 03:39

That was not good.

Meliza Manalo 03:41


Leah 03:41

They get the cackle down.

Bailey 03:43

That's poor grammar.

Leah 03:43

My nick name was bruha-ha.

Bailey 03:44


Meliza Manalo 03:44


Leah 03:50

Yeah, because of my hair.

Bailey 03:52

Bruha. A Burro? A Burro?

Meliza Manalo 03:54

What's a Burro?

Bailey 03:56

It's a donkey.

Leah 03:57

That's what bruha is.

Meliza Manalo 03:58

Oh, no, a bruha is a witch.

Bailey 04:02

Haww! Seriously?

Leah 04:03

My mom used to call me bruha-ha.

Meliza Manalo 04:05

When my hair is messy. My mom called me bruha.

Leah 04:08


Meliza Manalo 04:10

Like, "Go brush your hair."

Leah 04:10

She's like, "Hey, Leah. Why do you look so bruha-ha?" (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 04:17

Filipino parents, the best, aren't they?

Leah 04:20

Mm hmmm.

Meliza Manalo 04:21

So, today's episode, we're going to talk about spooky stories for Halloween. I love Halloween. Halloween is my favorite.

Katrina 04:29

Aaooooo (Wolf howling sound)

Bailey 04:29

Me too.

Leah 04:30

It's my favorite holiday.

Meliza Manalo 04:32

Do you guys have a costume for this year? I know that was a good one. That's a cute little one.

Leah 04:35

I don't. Usually, I'm so... I'm always last minute with my costumes. Fabian has his costume all ready. This is the first time that we're not doing it like a couples costume.

Meliza Manalo 04:48

Did you do a couples costume last year?

Katrina 04:50

I thought you did. Was that last year or two years ago when you did Billie?

Leah 04:53

We didn't. We didn't really. Oh, I did Billie when he wasn't here. And then last year, we went hiking for Halloween.

Meliza Manalo 05:01


Katrina 05:01

That one went viral.

Meliza Manalo 05:03


Leah 05:04

Oh yeah.

Katrina 05:05

Just like hopping off.

Leah 05:07

I do but then my... you know, my Instagram got hacked so now I don't have that evidence that it actually like...

Meliza Manalo 05:14


Leah 05:14

I was Insta famous for like a day. I swear. I swear I was the very first person to dress up as Billie Eilish. Because I could not find... I searched for it. Because I was like, I want to be Billie Eilish. I wonder if anyone's done this before. I needed some ideas. And I couldn't find a single person who dressed up like her for Halloween. And then I posted that picture. And she liked it. And then I got really famous after that for like, a couple hours.

Meliza Manalo 05:44

She liked it.

Katrina 05:45

I know. It was so crazy, man. Yeah, really just watching the count go up.

Leah 05:49

You should've...I wish you could have seen my phone. The notifications were coming in so fast. You couldn't even read them. They were just like... they were just rolling.

Katrina 06:01

Yeah, like what? 10,000 on there?

Leah 06:04

No, it was only like 6000.

Katrina 06:06


Meliza Manalo 06:06

Yeah. But that was your little shot of fame for like a day.

Leah 06:11

I know. I still have the pictures, though. So, I just don't have the post anymore, which I'm really sad about. But whatever.

Meliza Manalo 06:18

Damn people.

Leah 06:19

Now she's too famous.

Katrina 06:21


Bailey 06:21

Have you heard her new song? My future? Or future? whatever it's called. It's really good.

Leah 06:27

I don't think. No, I don't think so. Is it the...?

Meliza Manalo 06:29

Okay. Look it up on... Huh?

Leah 06:31

Is it the one for James Bond?

Bailey 06:34

No, no. She just came out with it. Look it up on YouTube, 'Billie Eilish NPR Tiny Desk concert from home'.

Leah 06:43

I've not seen.

Bailey 06:43

I'll text ya. I'll text it to ya.

Leah 06:45


Bailey 06:46

I will.

Leah 06:48

Anyway, there's a tangent, right there. (Laughter)

Bailey 06:51

What are we doing again?

Meliza Manalo 06:53

It's like every episode. I feel like every episode I have with people, like the actual main subject is for half... like maybe 20 minutes. And then the rest of it are just a bunch of tangents. (Laughter) But um...

Leah 07:06

Remember, I gotta be in bed by 12:00.

Bailey 07:08

Yeah, we're on time. All right.

Meliza Manalo 07:09

All right. Let's get to it.

Bailey 07:11

Let's get into it.

Meliza Manalo 07:12

Do you want to share your story?

Leah 07:14

My story?

Meliza Manalo 07:15


Leah 07:16

Umm, I think I have a couple.

Meliza Manalo 07:19


Leah 07:19

My, umm... I guess I'll share my best. Should I go for my best story right now?

Katrina 07:26

Give us every detail. We should close our eyes so we could... (Laughter)

Leah 07:32

I feel like my stories aren't even really that great though. Now that I think about it.

Meliza Manalo 07:37

Well, just share. Share one.

Katrina 07:41

She said share one.

Meliza Manalo 07:42

Wait how many do you have?

Katrina 07:43


Leah 07:44

Umm... I have like, two or three. Well, two of them are mine. Or three of them are mine. One of them is not really mine.

Meliza Manalo 07:53


Leah 07:54

It's my mom's.

Bailey 07:54


Meliza Manalo 07:55

Okay. It's like when she was in the Philippines?

Leah 07:59

No. It was when Inang died. You hear me?

Meliza Manalo 08:06

Yeah, there's a delay. There's a delay from the FaceTime and from the Zoom. It's okay.

Leah 08:12


Meliza Manalo 08:13

It'll eventually matchup. That's fine.

Bailey 08:15

It'll find itself out.

Leah 08:16

There's kind of a delay now.

Meliza Manalo 08:17

Just don't look at our mouth.

Leah 08:17

Yeah, for me. You guys go in and out.

Meliza Manalo 08:21

Okay. Hopefully, it doesn't ruin the recording. But... All right. Yeah.

Leah 08:25

I feel like I've told you guys my story before, though. So, this one is in that apartment that we lived in at the Grove? Yeah, well, formerly the grove. It's not the Grove anymore.

Meliza Manalo 08:36

Let's not. Let's not say the name of the apartment. At an apartment somewhere in the...

Bailey 08:50

Somewhere in the continental U.S.

Leah 08:52

Well. it's not called that anymore.

Meliza Manalo 08:53

That's true.

Leah 08:54

It's not even called that anymore. But I wasn't gonna say the actual name now. Anyway, in this apartment that we lived in. And at the time, it was me and Ava. Ava is my little sister. For those who don't know. She was born when I was 13. So, she's like, 'baby' baby. She was probably like, maybe not even two. I don't think. It's at that age where kids can like... they don't know how to talk really. But can kind of understand what they're getting at. It's like limited words. Yeah, I think it was like just before two or something like that. But anyway, we're in my room. And it's that room. So, it's a three-bedroom apartment. And my room, which is always weird. And it was that room that was always really cold. Do you remember that?

Meliza Manalo 09:32

Probably at two. Yeah.

Leah 09:55

Like that room was just always ice cold. Like we'd have the heater on, it'd be at like 80 degrees, and my room would probably be like... felt like 50. It was so cold. I slept with like five blankets. No joke. That's not an exaggeration. I slept with 5 blankets every single night.

Meliza Manalo 10:15

That's why I like that room. (Laughter) It was cold.

Leah 10:18

I hated it. I hated it. But anyway, so it's like the middle of summer. It's just me and Ava in that room because we're home alone all the time. And it's like the middle of the day. And we're just sitting on the floor. And I'm just drawing a heart on my ankle. For some reason. I don't know why. So, I was doing that. But it's just like a regular cheap ballpoint pen. Just drawing on myself. And so, Ava comes in and she basically lets me know that she wants me to do that to her too. So, she sits down, and I start drawing on her ankle, like just another little heart. And then all of a sudden, she looks up into the corner of the room. And it says, 'Vaulted ceilings'. And it's really, really high up. And she just stares at this one specific corner of the ceiling. And I'm just drawing on her. And out of nowhere, she just starts screaming bloody murder. Like just screaming and crying. And she keeps saying, "Ow, Ow it our hurts." And she just stares at that spot in the ceiling. And doesn't move her eyes and she just keeps telling me that it hurts. And I thought maybe I hurt her with the pen for some reason. But it's not a sharp pen. It's like one of those pretty blunt pens. So, there's no way I hurt her with the pen. And she's just like freaking out. So, I grabbed her. And I went out of that room so quick. Shut the door, and I did not go back in there until my parents came home.

Bailey 11:49

Dude, that's creepy

Meliza Manalo 11:50

Ava did of weird things though when she was two.

Bailey 11:53


Meliza Manalo 11:53

Mm hmm.

Leah 11:54

Also, a lot of weird things happened in that room.

Meliza Manalo 11:57

Yeah, and that apartment specifically.

Bailey 11:59

Can you...

Leah 12:00


Bailey 12:00

... expand?

Meliza Manalo 12:02

Was that thing that happened... you guys were in the Philippines.

Leah 12:06

We were in the Philippines? Yeah, all the toys just fell off the shelf.

Meliza Manalo 12:10

Yeah. So, like, I guess a little backstory. So, I used to live with Leah and Brandon and their family. And so, Leah, Brandon and their mom went to the Philippines. And then...

Leah 12:23

I forgot what happened.

Meliza Manalo 12:24

Eva used to... she would sleep upstairs with me. Or she would sleep in the master bedroom with her dad. But there's like one time. And I can't remember like exactly what happened. I think Ava was sleeping with me at the time. And then so Loui's room was empty. There's no one in there. You know, like they're all in the Philippines. And like, one night we just heard a crash, I think right? I think it was just one night we heard a crash.

Leah 12:50


Meliza Manalo 12:51

And all the toys on the shelf just fell down.

Katrina 12:54

That's so scary.

Meliza Manalo 12:55

And there's no like no one.... There's like no one banged on anything. There wasn't like an earthquake or anything. It was just one random night and all the toys just fell down. Yeah. It freaked me out. And then I was like... I don't think I even went downstairs. I just waited till the morning. Just like went down there and just checked it out and

Bailey 13:14

Waited till daylight?

Meliza Manalo 13:15

Yeah. Cuz nothing happens just that way.

Leah 13:17

Exactly. Freaks come on at night. Right?

Bailey 13:19

Exactly. (Laughter)

Leah 13:21

I never thought about like, why that room was so cold all the time. And I'm thinking about it. That's probably because that room was just like, not right.

Meliza Manalo 13:33

Haunted or something?

Leah 13:34

Yeah. Because Casey then lived in an apartment that was the same exact layout. And that second bedroom was never cold like that. Because they used to... my mom used to say like, "Oh, because it kind of sticks out a little bit or just the way, just where the room is placed. Like it's just cold because of where it is." I don't know.

Meliza Manalo 13:56

Yeah. But the master bedroom is like adjacent to it. And it was fine.

Leah 14:00


Meliza Manalo 14:01

So, yeah. That apartment...

Leah 14:02

Yeah. Every other three bedroom that we had been in was perfectly fine.

Meliza Manalo 14:09

Yeah. And that was the last...

Leah 14:11

It's just that one room.

Meliza Manalo 14:11

Oh, no. That wasn't the last one. Because your mom moved into another one after that.

Leah 14:16

Yeah, it was a second. But we lived in there for a long time.

Meliza Manalo 14:19


Leah 14:21

It was like four years or something, I think. Almost I think the entire time I was in high school.

Meliza Manalo 14:29

Yeah. And that apartment was also the first place I had my first night terror.

Leah 14:37

And Brandon. Yeah. Brandon used to get really bad sleep Paralysis there, too.

Meliza Manalo 14:44

Mm hmm.

Katrina 14:44

That's so scary.

Meliza Manalo 14:45

Yeah, cuz I've never even heard of sleep paralysis. But I guess Brandon has always had it since high school, I think. But that apartment specifically was the first time I ever had sleep paralysis. Do you guys know what that is?

Bailey 15:00

Not really. I've heard of it. But I don't really know what it is.

Leah 15:03

It's terrifying.

Meliza Manalo 15:03

So basically like...

Katrina 15:05

It's like... is it when you're asleep, but then you can't wake up from your dream?

Meliza Manalo 15:09

Mm hmm. So, your body is asleep, but your mind is awake. So, your mind is aware that something is happening. And then a lot of sleep terrors also... like people end up seeing supernatural things happen during a sleep terror and then you can't wake yourself up.

Bailey 15:27

Ha? Interesting.

Meliza Manalo 15:29

And there's like videos about it.

Leah 15:30

And then you hallucinate. Yeah, you hallucinate like crazy.

Meliza Manalo 15:33

Yeah. Because my first sleep terror... or what are they called?

Bailey 15:39

Night terrors?

Leah 15:40

Sleep paralysis? Or like night terrors?

Meliza Manalo 15:42


Bailey 15:42

Or a nightmare?

Meliza Manalo 15:43

Yeah. Well, it's like more intense than a nightmare.

Bailey 15:46

A nightmare on steroids.

Meliza Manalo 15:47

Yeah. Basically. But like my first one, I think you guys were in the Philippines also. It just happened. I was by myself and I was sleeping. And then... so the upstairs is a loft, right? So, there's no closing walls. So, it's like the loft room and then it goes down to a staircase that goes to the main house or main apartment. And so, I just remember I couldn't move. And then I think I saw like... I think I saw Louie going down the stairs. But I know she's not there. And I didn't see her face. I just see the back of her. So, it looked like she was in our loft. And then she was walking towards the staircase. And then she turned to go down the staircase. But I didn't... never saw her face. I just saw the back of her.

Leah 15:47


Katrina 16:11

I wouldn't literally...

Leah 16:32

You never told me that.

Meliza Manalo 16:39

I never told you that? Oh.

Bailey 16:40

What the f*ck, Louie? Why would you do that? (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 16:43

Cuz she was in the Philippines.

Leah 16:45

But the weird thing though, like once I moved up to that loft... You guys still hear me?

Meliza Manalo 16:51


Katrina 16:52


Bailey 16:52


Leah 16:52

Okay. Something was weird with my headphones. Anyway, when I moved upstairs into that loft after you and Brandon moved out, every single time I was home alone at night, I would always hear running up and down those stairs.

Meliza Manalo 17:09

Yeah, I always like heard that. I wasn't sure if that was just me or I don't know...

Leah 17:16


Meliza Manalo 17:17

...The neighbor. But now that's weird, but you heard that too.

Leah 17:20


Meliza Manalo 17:21

Oh, my God. I'm so glad I'm not in that apartment anymore.

Leah 17:23

I don't think I ever said anything to anyone, but I would hear it all the time when I was home alone.

Meliza Manalo 17:28

Mm hmm. What? What happened?

Bailey 17:32

I hear something. Can you guys hear it?

Katrina 17:36

There's a dog barking.

Meliza Manalo 17:37

Oh, there's a dog barking outside.

Bailey 17:39

Oh, okay.

Meliza Manalo 17:40

That's our neighbor's dog.

Bailey 17:41

Not a demon.

Leah 17:41

I knew there was a dog outside. I'm not even there.

Meliza Manalo 17:44

I was like, what is it?

Bailey 17:45

Oh, okay, well...

Katrina 17:46

We have both headphones. So, it's kind of like where we can only hear ourselves.

Bailey 17:51

It's trapped.

Katrina 17:51

I just heard. Is that Link barking?

Bailey 17:53

The sound is trapped.

Meliza Manalo 17:54

Yeah, it's the neighbor's dog.

Bailey 17:56

It's a trap sound. (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 18:01

But like night terror are scary.

Bailey 18:04

I have nightmares all the fricking time.

Meliza Manalo 18:06

Cuz you can't do anything.

Katrina 18:07


Meliza Manalo 18:08


Bailey 18:08

I wouldn't say night terrors. Cuz I'm a boss a*s bitch. (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 18:12

It's true though.

Leah 18:16

I've had a couple of night terrors. And I get nightmares almost every single night.

Bailey 18:21


Meliza Manalo 18:22

Oh my god that's associated with stress.

Bailey 18:25

And anxiety.

Leah 18:26

I'm stressed constantly.

Meliza Manalo 18:29

That's probably why.

Katrina 18:30

Every time I do dream, it's a nightmare.

Leah 18:33

That makes sense.

Meliza Manalo 18:33

But you can actually... So, if you do get sleep paralysis regularly, you can actually practice lucid dreaming. And so...

Leah 18:41

Oh, I love Lucid dreaming.

Meliza Manalo 18:43

Yeah. Me too. Have you ever done that?

Bailey 18:44

Like inception.

Meliza Manalo 18:45

No, it really is like inception.

Leah 18:47


Meliza Manalo 18:47

Because when you're in a sleep paralysis, you see your surroundings. You look like you're in your room. And so, for me, when I know I'm in sleep paralysis... because what I do is... like you know, in inception, they have things that tell you that they're in a dream.

Bailey 19:02


Meliza Manalo 19:03

So, my token or whatever is that I look at my hands.

Bailey 19:07


Meliza Manalo 19:08

So, if I look at my hands, and they don't show up, like I don't see my hands, then I'm in sleep paralysis.

Leah 19:14

Oh, I was about to say I can never see myself when it happens.

Meliza Manalo 19:16

Yeah. So, that's like tokens. So, that's when I know I'm in sleep paralysis.

Katrina 19:20

That's crazy.

Bailey 19:20

Ya'll have blown my mind right now.

Leah 19:22

Yeah, I know.

Meliza Manalo 19:23

Cuz I just had it this morning actually.

Bailey 19:25

Like you just looked up there. And it was like nubbins?

Meliza Manalo 19:28

No, there's nothing. You can't see at all. It's just...

Katrina 19:30

And you're like, "All right. I'm in a dream."

Leah 19:31

Like you can feel yourself doing it.

Meliza Manalo 19:34

Yeah, but you can't feel yourself.

Leah 19:35


Meliza Manalo 19:36

And then if you're screaming, like you try to scream, and you can't...

Bailey 19:40

And it's like nothing?

Meliza Manalo 19:40

Yeah. Nothing, then you're in sleep paralysis. Yeah. But you can actually train your brain so that you can do lucid dreaming. And so, you can control your environment basically.

Bailey 19:41

Okay, that's happened to me before. I was just like, in a dream and I was scared. And I was like trying to escape. I wonder if I was lucid dreaming when I straight up fell asleep in a meeting at work. (Laughter) Not too long ago. I just like... I don't know, I just could not stay awake.

Meliza Manalo 20:07


Bailey 20:07

Yeah. And I just remember thinking in that moment like, I'm f*cked. This is not a good look for me. Not in the closed meeting with my boss. And in another department.

Meliza Manalo 20:19

Oh, my god.

Katrina 20:19

I can't hear you either.

Meliza Manalo 20:21

Oh no, did we lose you?

Bailey 20:23

It's the demons.

Meliza Manalo 20:24

Are you on? Oh, you're no longer... she's not on Zoom. That's creepy.

Bailey 20:30

At least she got her story out of the way. (Laughter)

Katrina 20:36

Mia is getting the chill vibes.

Meliza Manalo 20:39

Weird things are happening.

Leah 20:41

(Talking on the cell phone) I know. We've been slightly freaking out. I clicked on the link again.

Meliza Manalo 20:47

She clicked that. She clicked that link.

Katrina 20:50

What if we just did it off here?

Meliza Manalo 20:52

We could. I don't know how that'll sound. We're having some technical difficulties. Louie got kicked out of zoom. Do you want the...? There's um... you see that pink arm on the middle? Middle card middle... you know...

Leah 21:16

Pink arm.

Meliza Manalo 21:18

It's like white base pink arm?

Leah 21:20

That thing?

Meliza Manalo 21:21


Bailey 21:22

Oh, that thing?

Meliza Manalo 21:23


Bailey 21:26

Oh, that sign.

Meliza Manalo 21:28

Yeah, see. Well, we can record you like this until you figure out your...

Leah 21:37

Till I get it back up.

Meliza Manalo 21:39

Yeah, it just sounds funny.

Katrina 21:41

Get headphones for your phone.

Meliza Manalo 21:43

Yeah, put your headphones for your phone.

Leah 21:45

Oh, hold on. I think I'm getting it. Okay.

Bailey 21:52

Got her in!

Katrina 21:52

Admit. Okay, as soon as we get everything...

Meliza Manalo 21:55

I know.

Leah 21:59


Meliza Manalo 22:00

Okay. Are we back in business?

Leah 22:01


Meliza Manalo 22:02

Okay. Anyways, we were talking about night terrors. And then what did you...? Did you say something, Bailey?

Bailey 22:08

No, I did not raise my hand. (Laughter)

Meliza Manalo 22:11


Bailey 22:14

No, I think I just said like, I have nightmares all the time. And it makes me not want to sleep. And then I don't get any sleep. And then... oh, that's what I was talking about. And then I fall asleep at work in meetings. (Laughter)

Leah 22:25

Oh, God.

Bailey 22:25

And it's not a good look for me.

Leah 22:29

I mean, I have a lot of nightmares. But they don't usually affect me that bad. There was one though that really, really terrified me. And I couldn't shake it off for like three days. It was horrifying. I'm still like, still kind of anxious and crazy because of it.

Meliza Manalo 22:50

Do you want to share?

Leah 22:51

And that was like... it was like three weeks ago. I can't really remember the details. But it was basically about me being abducted...

Bailey 23:00

By aliens?

Leah 23:00

And so now like... No, from a person.

Meliza Manalo 23:04


Bailey 23:05

Like a random person maybe.

Leah 23:06

Like a random person was like... Yeah, someone was stalking me and abducted me. And I was able to escape in my dream. And I've never really had a fear of being kidnapped, or anything like that. Obviously, I make sure I watch myself. And I'm not stupid.

Bailey 23:25

Watch yourself.

Leah 23:26

Yeah, but ever since then... And that was like three weeks ago, but ever since then. I've been hyper aware of everything and just so on edge.

Bailey 23:35

Like paranoid?

Leah 23:35

And just like... Yeah, it's like I feel someone watching me now. And it's just...

Meliza Manalo 23:36

Uhhh. It's a horrible feeling.

Leah 23:41

And then my purse got stolen.

Meliza Manalo 23:43

Oh, it did?

Bailey 23:44

Your purse got stolen? What a violation of privacy.

Leah 23:47

Yes. While I was in gymnastics, and it was eight o'clock at night, no one's in there. But me and... sorry, me and the coach and one other... But anyways, me, the coach (Laughter) and one other girl we were doing Yoga. And it was just... it's kind of... it freaked me out because no one's supposed to be there. It was on a Thursday. So, it's not posted anywhere that we do gymnastics or anything on a Thursday. So, I guess it kind of looks like no one was in there or should be in there. And someone literally came into the lobby. We didn't hear anything. And it's a really tiny place. Like you can usually hear someone in the lobby. But someone snuck in, grabbed my purse.

Katrina 24:34

Just yours?

Leah 24:34

I was sitting on a chair. Just mine. The other girl's purse was right next to it. My phone and my keys were underneath my purse. And they just took my purse.

Meliza Manalo 24:46


Bailey 24:47

What the hell. That's messed up.

Katrina 24:49

Yeah, what? You guys have cameras?

Bailey 24:50

That's some bad juju you go to come back around.

Leah 24:52

No, they have cameras but not in that room.

Katrina 24:55


Bailey 24:56

Of course. That sucks. Leah, sorry.

Leah 24:57

I know.

Meliza Manalo 24:57

The lobby? They don't have cameras in the lobby?

Leah 25:01

No, they only have cameras in the actual gym.

Meliza Manalo 25:04

Ohh. Lesson learned.

Bailey 25:08

That sucks dude.

Leah 25:10


Bailey 25:10

So, now you have to get like a new license and everything.

Katrina 25:12

You just got it, didn't you?

Leah 25:14

No. I got really lucky, though. Because I accidentally left my license and a credit card in a jacket pocket. (Laughter)

Bailey 25:23

That's the most Leah thing I've ever heard. She gets better.

Leah 25:26

Wait, but wait. Wait.

Katrina 25:28

That's a great way.

Leah 25:29

I know. I forgot to wear my wedding ring that day, too. And normally...

Meliza Manalo 25:33


Leah 25:33

... I put it in my purse.

Katrina 25:35


Leah 25:35

But I forgot it that day.

Bailey 25:37

Good job, Louie.

Leah 25:39

I know.

Bailey 25:39

All right.

Leah 25:40

And normally I have more cash in there for gymnastics. But this time I only had 40 bucks, which is kind of a lot still. A lot of money.

Bailey 25:49

That's a lot of money.

Leah 25:49

Yeah. And they stole my inhaler.

Meliza Manalo 25:49


Bailey 25:51

Ohh. Your inhaler?

Meliza Manalo 25:53


Leah 25:53

My only inhaler.

Bailey 25:55

That's literally a wise planning.

Leah 25:58

I know. But there's literally nothing else valuable in there.

Meliza Manalo 26:03

That's good.

Katrina 26:03


Leah 26:03

If they... whoever stole it, got 40 bucks.

Katrina 26:06

And an inhaler.

Meliza Manalo 26:07


Leah 26:08

And then maybe like, there's like a couple... I'm really upset because I had a world market gift card in there for 15 bucks.

Bailey 26:16

Haww. That's a lot of money for world market.

Leah 26:17

So, I'm really sad about that.

Meliza Manalo 26:19

Is it?

Leah 26:19


Bailey 26:20

Kind of.

Leah 26:21

And a Barnes and Noble one and an old one. So, that kind of sucked.

Bailey 26:26


Leah 26:26


Bailey 26:27

That sucks.

Leah 26:28

Yeah. A lot.
