Today’s prompt reads

Would you buy your dream house if the price was right BUT you also were told it was inhabited by ghosts?
Okay, I have a confession: I’m living in my dream apartment right now, and I’m convinced it’s haunted by a ghost.
It’s brand spanking new.
At night I sometimes hear strange noises. My soap dissolves really quickly in the shower. Things fall off my walls in the middle of the night.
Okay, so maybe none of these things point towards ghosthood, but, in my dramatic way of thinking, I like to think that my apartment was buried on an ancient burial ground. Or that perhaps a ghost is trapped in my wall. Or maybe even that the headless horseman lives within the sole of my roommate, Bartholomew Bones.
It was Bartholomew’s turn to cook dinner.
Okay, I’ve clearly reached the brink of insanity. I blame a lack of sleep, an over-abundance of grading this week, and not having enough coffee in my system.
Back to the prompt…
If I was simply told my house was inhabited by ghosts, and the price was right, I’d definitely buy it. People might just be saying shiz to guarantee they don’t get a weird, red-headed lesbian neighbor with an affinity to sing showtunes at the top of her lungs at 6am while walking to her car. (You know, theoretically, because I totally didn’t do that this morning….)
Now, if Bill Murray showed up, I might have a completely different answer…
After this post, I want to say a) thank you for reading this far, b) why are you still reading this?, and c) if I’m currently educating your spawn may the Lord have mercy on them.
