  • One of my mother’s ghosts has been hanging around the house lately. The last time he was here, he got on my nerves and I told him to go home, so he sulked back to my parents house. Which may be why this time around he’s been avoiding me. He has taken to skulking around in rooms that I’m not in, and amusing himself late at night by turning faucets on and off to annoy me.

    There’s nothing worse than a prankster figment of the imagination.

    Excerpt from an old journal of mine
