Your House Is Haunted... Or Maybe You Just Have Children

This Saturday morning as I lay in bed, listening to a faint "scratch scratch scratch" sound on my bedroom door that eventually went away, I started to wonder if my house could possibly be haunted.

The more I thought about this theory, the more it made sense. Paranormal activity would explain a lot of occurrences around my house, such as:

1. Unexplained footsteps in the middle of the night.

2. Finding lights on in rooms when I'm absolutely positive I turned them off.

3. Mysterious writing on the walls. Instead of 'REDRUM,' though, it usually looks more like this:

Your House Is Haunted... Or Maybe You Just Have Children  -- Paranormal activity would explain so much at my house: all the unexplained noises, things disappearing all the time... I'll bet it could make sense of a lot of things happening at your house, too.  {posted @ Unremarkable Files}

4. Objects in the house disappear all the time, and I find them later in strange places where I didn't put them.

5. Pictures on the walls are all hanging at an angle, even if I straightened them just a minute ago.

6. Electronic toys sometimes start up when no one's in the room or even awake.

7. Hearing muffled voices and whispering upstairs after bedtime, but when I go to check everything is quiet.

8. Several times I've walked into the kitchen to find the refrigerator door wide open. (Dramatic drops in temperature and doors that open by themselves are both signs you have a ghost.)

9. Peculiar handprints keep appearing on the walls. If I scrub them off, they're back the next day.

10. Sometimes I wake up from a dead sleep with the creepy feeling I'm being watched; a small apparition is at my bedside with an ominous message, like "My finger hurts."

Is your house haunted, too?

  1. Bwhahahahahahha. The ghost in our house first stands at his door and screams "MY LIGHT IS ON!" when his alarm light comes on, then appears next to my bed saying "I want to go downstairs." It's a thing with the ghosts.

  2. One of my ghosts is a narrator, telling everything going on all the time (even getting out of bed to do so. I recently had a writing on the wall problem too.

  4. Oh my!! Too funny! You never know...what if the theory of paranormal activity was all brought on by the delirium of motherhood from the very beginning of time!! ;) #thetruthabout

    1. Wouldn't that be funny if that was how it all began?

  5. I love your reinterpretation of all these phenomena Jenny - much more mystical and romantic than the real truth of the matter :-) Thanks for linking up to this week's #thetruthabout X
