Freaky Friday

For my first Freaky Friday – I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite ghost stories.

I was telling ghost stories at a local event and I invited members of the audience to share stories too.  A woman in her sixties stood up and explained that she had just returned from visiting her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren in their home in Pennsylvania.  She said they lived in an old house, at least two hundred years old.

One night, after eating dinner in the dining room, they moved to the adjacent living room to sit and visit. Her chair was positioned so she could still see into the darkened dining room.  Suddenly, she saw a movement out of the corner of her eye. She turned to watch. To her astonishment, a young boy dressed in old-fashioned clothing glided across the dining room and vanished into the wall.

Her surprise must have shown on her face, because her five-year-old grandson walked over to her, patted her comfortingly on the hand and said, “Don’t worry, Grandma. That’s just the attic people.”

Happy Freaky Friday.
