Odd NON-HUMAN COUPLE With Stroller in Park?

The eyewitness remembers encountering a very odd couple on two different occasions and at two entirely different locations. He is very confused by the interaction and the circumstances.

"I don't think they were human. This was an experience that happened when I was a kid, probably 10 years old in 2010. (I'm 22 now for reference). There used to be this park my dad would take me to here in Maryland. He would play basketball in the section where the courts were, and I would play in the section with the park equipment.

One day I was on a swing set, and this couple came up and started talking to me. There was a man and a woman with a black stroller (I don't think I ever saw a baby in the stroller. I remember it always being faced away from me.) This may have been a normal interaction,  but something felt very off or dream-like about the encounter(s). I was even able to pick up on it at that age. The man in the couple was wearing blue jeans, and a red & white plaid/checkered shirt. But he looked odd. Like kind of clammy, pale, or jaundiced/gray. I also remember his eyes being very penetrating. The woman had on a dress and (I think) had medium-length brown hair. I can't remember her face, no matter how hard I try though. She looked more "normal" from what I remember. (The best way to describe the man's hair would be kind of blonde, ashen, and artificial-looking. In a sort of bowl-cut style I think)

I can't remember exactly what we talked about, but I think it revolved around God/religion, and it was a fairly short interaction, probably about 10 minutes. The weirder part is that I saw them later at a completely different park on a different date (could have been weeks or months), and they were in the exact same outfits with the exact same stroller. It looked like only 5 minutes had passed, but it was a completely different location at a different time. I can remember feeling apprehensive and "off" when I saw them again, Strangely, I can't remember if I talked to them or not a second time.

The last key to the story is that when I told my Dad about seeing this couple multiple times as a kid, he said that maybe they were "angels." I remember that comment intensely freaking me out for some reason.

Now, there could be a perfectly rational explanation for this, but more recently I've been doing more spiritual work and growth, as well as scientific (astrophysical/biological, quantum physics/theory, extra, etc.) research, and this memory resurfacing prompted me to share it. It's not the first time I recalled this happening, but it is the first time I feel like I could maybe get some explanation. I'd be happy to provide any more context about my life (if it's helpful) or the encounters if I can remember! It wasn't the sort of thing where they did anything really suspect I could tell my dad (or police) about. The man just didn't look human? Like the only way to describe it was he looked, like a wilted flower? An uncanny clammy human-wilted flower. That's the weird part.

I do remember sort of shuffling off toward the courts after talking to them. But the second time I can't remember if I approached them or not, which is strange. It's fuzzy, it sort of blips in and out. Both encounters felt sort of dream-like. I also usually have a good brain for remembering faces, but I can't really remember the lady's face (a good portion of the guy's in detail). Could certainly be chalked up to the fact that this was a while ago, but I still recognize people around my hometown from when I was that age. So I don't know. I just felt scared or off, like not quite right.

Even now it's the sort of thing where if I hadn't externally told my Dad, he didn't also physically notice them, I would doubt that it actually happened. I just remember feeling that was weird. Gave me a sort of a weird feeling, especially the second time I saw them."

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - cryptid & unexplained accounts directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monster Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.

Featured in this edition:

The reports of winged humanoids, referred to by many witnesses as the 'O'Hare Mothman or Batman,' continue at the airport. Cargo workers, air traffic controllers, & other airport personnel are well aware of the phenomenon and openly discuss it amongst themselves. The O'Hare management and the airlines start to crack down on reports reaching the public by threatening suspension and termination. 

In this episode, I will describe the reports and incidents in detail and answer all questions from the chat room. Because there is so much important information yet to be discussed, there will be at least another episode presented in the coming weeks.

YOUR SUPPORT IS APPRECIATED! THANKS
