03:31 pm: Overheard at the Wright Household

 

I arrived at the door of Juss’s friend’s house. His friend, who is a couple of years older than him, met me at the door with the words:

“Juss told me about your ghost problem. I’ve started a Ghost Hunting business. I’d like to come over and check it out.”

Being a good roleplayer, I just nodded in agreement. (I knew my son knew it was a game…did this boy? God only knows.)

So, the friend arrived, and the two boys ran off to look for ghosts, inside and out. I was impressed at their diligence. It was COLD out there. I heard a few tidbits of conversation. Stuff like:

“It’s definitely not a vampire or a werewolf.”

and (with distain)

Juss: “There are no vampires in Virginia!” [which really made me want to write a short story that could include the line, "The red-cravatted vampire is spotted only south of Florida. While, the blue-spatted vampire is seen only along the Mississippi River."]

They asked if they could go in to the locked store rooms. I said okay, so long as they didn’t touch anything. They came running back to tell me that the laundry room, which is normally locked, was unlocked. They asked, had I left it unlocked.

I could not remember, but I said, “I don’t think so.”

They looked at each other and nodded simutaneoulsy. “Poltergeist!”

As they ran off to investigate, I heard Juss say, “It was definitely a poltergeist, or maybe a ninja!”

How interesting.

I didn't know ninjas were a form of ghost.

That was my exact thought. In fact, I thought of the world where ninjas run around with vampires and werewolves as kind of cool.

But when I questioned Juss a few days later, he told me that what he had meant was that if there were a ninja in the house, it might have unlocked the store room, rather than a ghost.

I hope not. The idea of the house being infested with ninja is a bit daunting.

That's the problem with Ninja. It's very hard to rule them out.

I'm wondering if the guys who spray for bugs can do something about ninja's, too.

Once they discover the culprit, I'm interested in their method of removal!

Alas, they didn't find anything.

A neighbor insists she really has ghosts. Maybe they'll try there.
