Haunted House Update

The window game is still alive and well.  It opens by itself, I close it.  Not exactly chess, or even Chutes and Ladders, but if it keeps the spirit amused, I'll play.  Something else...I'm not sure if it's paranormal.  It is weird, though.  Our bathtub drain was working just fine.  Then a few days ago, it got very, very slow, to the point where the water would be up to your ankles at the end of a shower.  We plunged, we poured goop down the drain...nothing.  Finally, my partner went into the basement and took the pipes apart.  What did he find?  A pretty blue rubber ball (we used to call them superballs).  Now, I'd seen that ball in this house months ago but no where near the bathroom.  How did it manage to find its way down the drain?  Excellent question.  We talked about it and couldn't come up with anything that made sense.  I did wonder if a certain game-loving spirit might be having a bit of fun with us.  It's a stretch, I know, but I thought it was worth mentioning. 

By the way, if you are a regular reader of my blog, it would be awesome if you could do the Follower thing (over on the left there).  Also, check out the free short story and novel (also on the left) if you have a spare minute or two.

Thanks for your interest in my words.  I really do appreciate it. 


  1. Does the spirit play cat and missile, or just cat and mouse?

  2. I'm not sure who'd be the missile and who'd be the cat...
