My husband had to be at work early this morning for a meeting. And, since I hitch a ride with him, that meant I had to be at work early, too. When we left it was kind of dark and very cold. Frost everywhere. Foggy. Creepy (but cool creepy, not creepy creepy). I thought of the Paranormalist. And that Doris Day movie - - the one that takes place in London - - I forget the name. But I remember being creeped out by it. Anyway, my husband dropped me off at the dark stairs which lead down to my office and watched me go in. I am in the corner of the basement and, when it's dark, it's very very dark :) I was the first one in the building (it's a relatively small, one story with a basement). I turned on the light and immediately locked the door behind me (I never do that). But my imagination was starting to act up.
I love scary movies. And a scene from every single scary movie I have ever seen in my lifetime came to my mind. The Shining - "Come play with us . . . forever and ever and ever." I could see Linda Blair pushing a priest out of the window. AND I could see a stringy haired dead girl climbing up my wall. Sure, all of those are just movies. BUT I believe that there are spirits all around us, and a few of them are not as sweet as Linda Blair! So, I thought of that too, and was really creeping myself out. I was just about ready to call my husband to have him talk me down from my self-imposed creeped-out mode . . . when I heard a voice . . .
"Good morning Judy! Happy Friday!" Okay, I can unlock the door now!
