The Ghosts

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about today’s story, because admittedly, I didn’t warn you yet, but I’m about to:

it’s a scary one. Frightful! It might cause you to go to sleep with all the lights on, and even then, you might suffer nightmares. You might find yourself short of breath, or you might get jumpy when a rat rustles a garbage can while you’re walking the dog in the middle of the night. In fact, you know the warning signs on roller coasters? Same rules apply here– you shouldn’t listen if you have high blood pressure, epilepsy, don’t like roller coasters, or are under four feet tall. For the rest, to further simulate the experience, why don’t you wait for two hours prior to listening, then after 45 seconds, throw your arms in the air and scream. It’s -that- scary.

And now, don’t say I didn’t warn you, because I just did!
