Totally Spooky

Disclaimer: This story is told based facts and the language and comprehension skills of an 19 month old. Believe if you will....proceed if you dare.


Yesterday evening I was still feeling a little under the weather, so Matt and Carter went on a walk and left me there lying on the couch with my blanket, the remote control and an Oprah I recorded from earlier. (Breast Cancer Awareness special...very important and well worth watching) Besides the point and back to the story. I was lying there, all was quiet, Oprah turned down low when all of a sudden one of Carters toys from the loft starting singing the alphabet "ABCD.."...kind of spooked me at first since nobody else was home. It stopped so I didn't think much of it, until that is when the two of them got home from their walk about 30 minutes later. Carter crawled up next to me and Matt sat down and then that stupid toy started singing again from upstairs in the loft. I looked at Matt, Matt looked at me, and he asked Carter jokingly, "Carter, do we have a ghost?" And Carter replied, "yeah", which totally sent chills down my spine. Matt probed more questions, "What does the ghost say?" As Carter answered confidently, "Rrrhhh". I freaked. Then Matt asked, "Do they say anything else?" I really didn't want to hear the answer but before I could cover my ears Carter said, "BOO"! I screamed! I mean really how does a 19 month old even know that is what they would say, you know, hypothetically?? I mean this is only his second Halloween season and it isn't like we sit around talking about ghost and so on. So to me, this totally seemed real. So about 30 minutes pass and Matt and Carter start going through the mail from the day and in the mail we got a little Halloween magazine with tons of costumes and little fall decorations. As they were looking at it, Matt opened it to a page with like, I am not even exaggerating, 50 costumes on one page. They included animals, people, ghost, Dracula, and many more. Matt asked Carter, "Do any of these look like the ghost?" Totally thinking he would pick like the cow or the chicken since those are the ones he would recognize we were surprised to see what he did point to. THE SKELETON!! Not even a ghost, only a skeleton, all bony and spooky! That was it. I am now forever convinced that my sweet little child has seen a ghost, skeleton whatever you wish to call it. Completely true story. Totally Spooky! The house is now on the market...any buyers??? Happy October!!
