a ghost in my nest

i have a ghost. or my house has a ghost. either way, there is an apparition lurking around my living space. and you know what? i really don't mind much. my ghost seems relatively harmless and might even be good company now and again.

i had come home a few times to feel that someone else had been in my space, which was naturally a little disconcerting, but i figured it had something to do with the upheaval of my life and not knowing my own nest just yet. then i had a friend over for dinner and when i realised the tap in the bathroom was running, i just assumed either he or i had left it on after washing our hands.

but then one time, when i was all alone i found the bathroom tap on as high as it could go and as hot as it could go so i knew that even if i had left it on, i would never have had it at full blast such as it was.

and then last night, i was having a chat with my sister on the phone and noticed that my upstairs light was on and i had distinctly remembered turning it off earlier when i was surprised that it was on, so i think my ghost was at it again.

harmless, i am sure, but i hope that it knows that i recognise it is there so it can stop turning things on that i need to run around after!

Lu, you have the most unique experiences. Was there any notification from the previous owner that there might be permanent visitors?

lu said...

nope, so maybe it is my ghost and not the nest's ghost??

ceeeeeepy!

kind of cool... have you named it yet?

i thought about that, especially considering my propensity to name things, but then figured it probably had a name once so i shouldn't be going around giving it a new name. i would imagine if there is a way to tick off a ghost, that is it!
