Okay, so technically, today is not Friday. In my defense, I am so vamped for this contest that I just couldn't wait any longer. The blog has been in my head for two days, twirling around with all the other mad little ideas and it needed to be let out of the cage. Here we go..... da da dahhhhhh~
First off, this is an easy contest. There are only 2 requirements and both of those are easy.
1. Follow my BLOG.
2. Leave a comment answering the question in this blog.
Leaving me a comment saying "hi" doesn't count (although I love those and love when people talk to me... I am a very social creature). I am nosy... I wanna know what you think...
On Sunday evening at 6pm (central time) I will randomly pick 2 people to win a free copy of my debut book, A Fire Within. I will be using www.random.org for this so, trust me, it's more random than I am! lol At 7pm ~ I will announce the winner and send you a msg with the link to www.smashwords.com with a code that gives you a free book. That's it~ so are you ready? Let's get to it then....
Today's blog is on ghosts. Whether you believe in them or not, all of us have had a "spooky" moment at some point in our lives. Something has been moved from where you laid it down or maybe, out of the corner of your eye, you saw something cross the room. Have your dogs/cats been staring at the corner lately, growling softly or whining at the no-see-ums that have taken up residence there? Or was it the monster under your bed that would keep you awake for hours before it was time to go to school?
For some background info, I live in the same house I grew up in. My grandmother (who raised me) left it & all the property to me when she passed away and now, my family & I live in it. We are planning on building an underground house within the next 3 years so this works out great for us while we clean off the land. (Yes, I did say underground.. we have lots of hills here and more tornados than I care to admit to. They are beautiful, do have windows and are damn near tornado proof.. and I would love to live like the fairies in Ireland.. nuff' said) :) I know we have ghosts in our house. You can hear them walking through the house at odd times and have even seen a few of them walking around, both day & night. I am used to this because I was raised in this house for 18 years before moving out on my own. My husband? He believed in them... he was just a little surprised at the amount of activity in this house. lol
This brings me to my question you have to answer.
What is your favorite ghost "moment"?
Now, I have to poke a little bit of fun at my wonderful sister-in-law here. My absolute FAVORITE ghost moment happened while she lived with us for a short period of time. She was in hair salon school (she is AWESOME by the way) & had moved in with us. I will not go into the details of why the "ghost" or "entity" (whatever word fits here, you can fill in the blank) got mad at her but ,WOW, it was not happy! Almost every morning, her room would be destroyed. I don't mean the usual "single person" mess. I'm talking drawers would be pulled out of her dresser with clothes partially hanging out. I'm talking shoes pulled out from under her bed. The light being turned on after it was off... after she had gotten in bed. And the lights? It was actually moved from "OFF" to the "ON" postion.
She now refuses to spend the night in our house. Ever.... When she comes over, footsteps can be heard in our hallway, walking up and down the corrider. Of course, it doesn't do anything to her, or to us... it just lets her know it still isn't happy with her. lol... It's very funny to watch her face before she leaves the house.
He/She/They don't bother us at all and we have no interest in getting rid on anyone. They are a GREAT conversation starter at times (especially when the lights flicker) so what about YOU? Please, don't make something up~ be honest. Even if you don't believe in little wee ghosties, tell about an "odd" experience that has happened to you. And, don't forget, I announce the winner on Sunday @ 7pm here and I will msg the winners~ Good LUCK~~
