Haunted? A spooky situation


OK, I am beginning to believe in ghosts.

I sometimes hear odd sounds when I am in the house alone which I generally attribute to the cats having one of their crazy moments.

But there’s the periodic vibrating mattress, the overhead light that keeps switching on and off by itself and the all-too-frequent rattling and banging and scrabbling in the walls and ceiling.

Have my parents somehow decided to come and hang out with us in spectral form?

I am sure there are rational, logical explanations for it all (mice, squirrels, magnetic fields, dodgy wiring).  But even Benny is beginning to be a tad spooked and he is a very difficult fellow to rattle..

And now I am royally POed because just when I was trying to get some sleep, the %^&&$## light came on again and I can’t find my sleep mask (presumably it’s with my ATM card). So I got up to switch it off and nipped into the bathroom. Well, my eyes had obviously not adjusted well to the dark as I managed to fall trying to get back to hed. I am sitting here with sore knees and a wrenched shoulder, knowing I will pay for this when the BLOODY light comes on again.  Gave up on sleep for now. I think the other half of that LorTab is calling my name.

Frankly, the only spook I want to have around here is 6 feet 2 inches of chocolate-voiced yumminess.  Something along the lines of the photo below . . .

And . . .the light just went back out.

And . . . it just came back on. Whom I gonna call?  Ghostbusters!!

The only spook I want haunting me.

  1. Sorry you had a fall! Hope you’ll get some rest though! I wouldn’t mind being haunted by Lucas either, although since he’s SND he can’t very well haunt, can he? 🙂

  2. The Sloth Fiction dudes are the only non-tangible entities allowed in your domain. You may have to have a serious chat with these haunts and get them to identify themselves. Tell them what they’re doing is just not on. What do they want? Ask them, and if they’re coy about it, well, then it’s time for them to get going. Collect a bunch of dried sage and lavander, and boil it up in a saucepan with about a quart of water. Walk through the house carrying the steaming saucepan and tell them not to bother you anymore. Repeat if necessary. Some “occult” shops carry “smudge sticks” that you light and carry through the house, but the herbal steam seems to work and is less of a fire hazard.

    • As Roseanne Rosanadanna used to say on Saturday Night Live, “It’s always somethin’!” LOL As I expected, I feel worse today than last night, between the change in the weather and the wrenched muscles in my upper body and knee mingled with FMS. I have to be thankful I didn’t fall on my back/tail as that would have been much worse. I do try to look on the bright side of things–don’t always succeed, but I try. So I have been posting and now catching up on comments.
