As Halloween fast approaches everyone wants the big story on ghosts, goblins, and unknown entities. I thought it would be the perfect time to take the plunge and brush-up on my interviewing skills.
The underworld agreed to release him on the signed contract that I would supply them with candy from the living.
It was an easy enough deal – I just went to the local Wal-Mart and dropped a couple of bags of candy down the well. It was no sweat!
I followed the instructions from Death and waited in the opening of the hollow. I waited with such anticipation! I couldn’t believe my luck! I was going to meet a celebrity! And a celebrity ghost on top of that!
My handsome dark knight came out of the hollow through the fog striding on his horse. He was larger than life! If only he had a head! He would have been quite dreamy…
As he rode up to me I held back my breath and stepped out of his reach.
You can never be too careful with a hungry head hunter!
“Good Evening Sir!”
“What is that sir? I can’t hear you!”
Another heavy grunt!
“Sir I must say it is very difficult to speak without your head! Is that why you steal so many?”
He slams his fist against the horse.
I take the hint and back away slowly! ” Oh! I see sir!”
He gets off his horse, raising his sword, ready to strike my head!
I duck! Jump out-of-the-way! And Scream! This is when I began to second guess my decision for a one minute conversation with the headless horseman. I think I may have even dropped my bottle of water on my pants!
I look-up and he faded back into the fog.
I look at my hands and place them around my neck. “Phew! It’s still there!”
I guess that is the last time attempting to interview headless entities! Someone always wants a piece of something whether it be candy or body parts! Next time I make a deal with the dead I want to talk to Marilyn and get the whole story on the Kennedy affair. Now that would be a story!
If you had the chance to meet with a spirit who would it be?
I am the head clown in my family's circus act! Most days I can be seen with my noise stuck in a good book, spilling coffee down my shirt, and aimlessly wandering about wondering where did I put my glasses.
