DO YOU BELIEVE IN GHOSTS?
Personally, I had two strange experiences. One I suppose can be explained away as a dream, but it sure felt real at the time. I was very young, maybe two or three. I woke up in the middle of the night, scared for some reason, and got into bed between my parents. I distinctly remember waking up a little later, and feeling compelled to look out into the hallway. What I saw was a black apparition floating by the door. I jammed my head back into the pillow and forced myself to go back to sleep. The next morning I mentioned it, but everybody thought it was just a dream. And maybe it was. Or the lights of a car driving by outside. Or Agnes.
I freaked and did exactly what you never want the guy in horror movies to do: I grabbed something heavy and searched the house. I looked into every nook and cranny, but found nothing. Nobody else was in the house. And that was no dream. My theory is that it was old Agnes…and she didn’t appreciate Jimi Hendrix music. Or maybe it was my playing. Who knows?
