Ghosts? What Do YOU Say?

Do you believe in ghosts or evil spirits?
Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted?

Well, it seems like everyone has a ghost story to tell, doesn't it? If I'm going to stay rational (who am I kidding? This is CALLY talkin', here. Rational? Pffft!) I'd say that I'd need to see or experience ghosts/spirits to believe in them. But...

Ultimately, I do believe in ghosts. You know how sometimes you just get a feeling about a place? To me, there's an energy about everything, and because so many people I respect have stories that suggest they've experienced unexplainable energies, I've gotta go with it and admit that I believe ghosts could be real- especially if they have unfinished business here. 

Again with the stories...

We had an amazing friend, Elizabeth (we called her Beth Ann), who passed away ten years ago. Two of my girls and I hold an annual reunion to remember the life that was lost. I'm telling you, people- almost every year, something crazy weird happens. Last year, the strong scent of her perfume wafted past us while we were eating dinner when no one walked by. As we experienced this sensory overload, our friend said, "Whoa. What IS that?" and then, immediately, someone in the restaurant shouted out, "Elizabeth!" So weird. Gooooooooooosebumps!

Now, I definitely do not think our friend is a ghost. But I like to believe that her spirit visits us from time to time. Maybe that belief just brings me comfort when I miss my girl, but I'm gonna let myself have that one.

The plain truth of it is- I just love a good ghost story. Like love. Got one? Tell it!

Being IN a ghost story, however, is something altogether different. eh.

Spending the night alone in a remote, supposedly haunted house sounds pretty traumatizing to me. Yeah. That wouldn't go over well. I mean, I would do anything if the incentive was great enough, but I wouldn't be raising my hand to volunteer for this one.

If I absolutely had to get through a night in this house, I'd have a plan for sure. Planting myself directly next to a first floor exit, I'd survey my surroundings carefully to ensure that nothing could injure me if it, you know, moved (GAH!) and I'd try to practice calming exercises to keep myself from tweaking out. If anything freakish occurred, I'd outwardly speak up to say that I'm not there to cause any harm and that I'd be gone soon. And then I'd have a heart attack and die. Probably. 

But come on now. The reality is that, if I had to stay in that house, I'd likely be in fetal position, rocking myself and mumbling like a total loony toon. It wouldn't be pretty. Like, the sight of me acting like that would probably spook the ghosts. Whoooooo! Who's this freakshow in our house? She's scaaaaary. Good thing we're dead and way past this human foooooolishness.

Has Wes Craven covered that one yet? I'll start a script...

So how about YOU?
