We think we have a ghost. We’ve named “him” Zachary. Don’t know why. We’re not sure if it’s a spirit or not — I tend to not believe in such things — but some odd things do happen. For one thing, both of our cats will stare at a certain spot near our den’s door for lengthy periods of time without moving. We think he’s there then. They’ve also done this in front of the fireplace a couple of times and twice in the dining room. For another thing, lights often flicker on and off, especially in the kitchen area. Don’t know why. It’s not the wiring. The bulbs are new. Also, at night we often hear strange sounds that we can’t account for. Hard to describe, but we hear things. Gretchen also misplaces things constantly. Now that could just be her, or according to the things I’ve read, it could be a ghost. Lastly, Gretchen saw a shadow form by the fireplace last year, just for a moment. Who knows? She has a rune something or other and broke it out recently to ask some questions. I don’t know how much stock I place in such things, but it indicated we do have a spirit here, just one, and male. We don’t know anything else. Our house was built in 1960, but it’s in a nice residential neighborhood, so I doubt it was built over an Indian burial ground or anything. The previous owner’s husband died 16 years ago, but we don’t know if it was here or in a hospital or where. Other than that, we don’t know anything about the house. We think Zachary is a “good” ghost. Nothing bad or evil has happened. But we’d like to find out. I’m considering bringing in a paranormal team to see what they come up with. In the meantime, I took a funny little online test. Here are the results:
What do you people think? Do we have a ghost? Is there a way to find out legitimately? Cheers!
Huh. Apparently my wife has heard voices and felt touches, as well as experiencing disappearing items. I didn’t realize that when I wrote this. I have retaken this quiz and here are the results:
