This is a recycled post from my old Blogger blog Leikur og List. March 10, 2006. This is a true story.
There will be a new post on March 27...
Do you believe in ghosts? I do and we have one. Now
it could be a poltergeist, except for the fact that there is not an
adolescent living here in our house.
My ghost likes to play tricks on us, to keep us on our toes I suspect. One thing it will do is turn the kitchen light on and off. Another favorite is slamming the window screens down in random windows.....this always occurs when the house is very quiet.
The roller blinds in our bedroom is another favorite toy....after I have pulled them down for the night, they will go up, with a lot of noise and drama, just about the time we are about to go into REM sleep.
My all time favorite are the television tricks. Our ghost waits until we are deep into the story of a great movie to turn the television off. Sometimes the television will go on when we are sitting in the family room reading or at our computers.......I will ask what show would you like to watch......if my tone is harsh the television will be turned off again. There is no way to please a ghost......at least not our ghost.
One night I was awakened from a deep sleep with people screaming and crying....I thought this was happening outside my house. Curiosity got the best of me and I got out of bed walked into the hallway to look out the window, it was then I noticed that the noises were coming from the TV.....I got rather miffed and told the ghost if he/she wants to watch television in the middle of the night, at least turn the volume down so that we can sleep. I think it listened to me, as I have not been awakened in the middle of the night since, however, sometimes when we go into the family room in the morning the television is on.....Now I must tell it to turn the TV off when it is finished watching. I would add a photo here if I had one, I think he/she is camera shy, or just shy as I have not seen it.
Do you have a ghost and does it play tricks on you? .
