Would you buy your dream house if the price was right BUT you also were told it was inhabited by ghosts?
Two words: Absolutely Not!
Let me start off by saying that I’m not convinced that ghosts exist, but I’m afraid to truly admit that because of fear that there’s a ghost reading my blog who will prove to me otherwise. So if you’re a ghost reading this, then I totally believe that you exist, so you don’t have to come haunt me to prove your existence! If you know any ghosts, don’t tell them that I’m not convinced. The reason I am not convinced is that I’ve never been confronted with a ghost or know anyone reputable who has. I have the same stance on aliens, too.
The closest ghost experience I have had is something that I don’t remember but was told happened to me. My mother’s mother died when I was 6 months old, so I never knew her. My mom told me that when I was 2 or 3, I woke up one morning and told my mom that my Nanny had come to visit me last night. I think mom said that she had heard a strange noise in the night, but now I want to know why she didn’t investigate the noise. I’m pretty sure that my Nanny hadn’t come to visit me, and that I had a very active imagination at a young age. If she did come to visit me, I wonder why she never did again? I mean, who visits close family just once in 35 years?
So back to the actual question, I would not buy any house to live in for any price if I was told that it was inhabited by ghosts. I just can’t imagine that there is a house out there that is worth the hassle of dealing with angry ghosts breaking your stuff, keeping you awake at night or bothering your guests. I’ve watched enough horror movies and read enough ghost stories to know that ghosts who haunt houses are rarely helpful and friendly. I mean, I suppose if this ghost cleaned my house and did my laundry then I might be willing, but I’m sure a house like that wouldn’t be priced right. You know what I mean?
Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever had an encounter with one? Would you be willing to have a ghost for a roommate?During the month of November, I am participating in the National Blog Posting Month, also known as NaBloPoMo, hosted by BlogHer. Most likely I am following these suggested prompts, but I might just get crazy and change things up every once in a while. I’m one wild and crazy gal!

I love your sense of humor. You made me laugh once again 😉 Ever thought about writing more humor style like this regularly? You are pretty funny! I hope for your sake no ghosts are going to haunt you now, but I seriously doubt that ghosts can read blogs anyways haha. I would never want a ghost as a roommate. Nope! I don’t believe in ghosts or aliens, but I do believe in some supernatural experiences or unexplained things. I have never seen a ghost (thank God cause It would most likely scare me to death), but I have had some unexplained experiences. One was an unexplained super loud noise that woke both me and my dad out of a sleep years ago. It sounded like a person..and it was an ever increasing loud wail that started out low in pitch and got louder and higher. Kind of like a WOOOOOOOAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH sound. Dunno what it was, but it was at around 2 am, and I could not get back to sleep for like a couple hours after that. Mostly because it was so loud and human sounding and it sounded like it was coming from inside the house. Yet no one but Dad and I heard it. The dog didn’t even stir at the noise. Was it a ghost? Who on earth knows. It was some kind of weird thing! The only experience I have had with being visited by people who have passed on is in my dreams. I have had it happen with 3 people , but the most with my grandma that passed. I don’t think it’s a ghost thing, but it was an interesting experience. She told me a message to give my dad in a dream. When I woke I remembered it and I told him just out of humor, and it turned out to be a true thing that I never knew about and he totally thought it was a message to him. I really don’t know, but it def. was cool that this thing she told me (which I never knew before) was something true that my dad knew about.
