The 'Ghost' Was Right In Front Of Me ... On The Wall!

The 'Ghost' Was Right In Front Of Me ... On The Wall!

I stood in the living room looking at our three precious Pups. Each one was asleep ... one on the couch, one on the love seat ... the other asleep on the big ottoman.

I heard something ... it was a ghostly, breathing sound. Ever so often, I heard this sound. I was alone ... the Pups were asleep.

Standing there, I tried to place 'where' exactly the sound came from. I knew it came from toward the hallway ... in my art room? in Skip's study? bedroom? bathrooms?

I walked through the house, cautiously. I was ready to run, if I needed to. Strange, the Pups didn't wake up to the sound. I never did discover the source of the sound.

A week went by, I heard the sound at different times of the day. I told myself that this house wasn't haunted. But ... what is that sound coming from? I was truly puzzled.

I'm not the bravest soul when it comes to something I ... can't see. If I can see something, I will face it off. I don't like hunting for where strange sounds come from. One never knows what can happen ... I watch tv ... I know what can happen. :)

You know how a woman will hear something in the dark part of a house. Your mind screams at her ... 'don't go, you fool, don't go'! It always happens on a movie ... the woman is too brave for her own good. I'd rather prepare ... wait in one place ... take a stand ... and go from there. I'm going to win because I want to live.

I thought to ask Skip if he'd been hearing an airy, breathing sound that seemed to have a little 'wheeze'. He said yes, he had. I was so glad to know he had heard it, also.

I was standing one day near the entrance into the hall ... I heard the sound very close to me! I turned around ... I didn't see anything. I tiptoed through the hallway to my art room, peered inside. The sound was coming from between that room, and the entrance to the hallway.

I waited, I didn't hear it again. I knew 'where about' the sound was coming from! I heard it again the next day ... I walked quickly into the hallway ... stood. Where was that sound coming from?

I was looking at the walls, thinking about how pretty they'd be with soft color on them. My eyes stopped ... my mouth fell open ...

Oh my goodness, I'd just discovered where the 'wheezy breathing' was coming from! It was on the wall right in front of me!

It was the white dispenser that disperses the air-freshner into the air! It was out of the air-freshner ... and whenever the automatic thing would work ... an airy, breathing, wheezy sound would come from it!

The house wasn't haunted at all! I am so happy to discover the source of the 'ghostly' sounds. I didn't have to get killed, stabbed, knocked out, kidnapped in the process of locating the 'ghost'!

The 'ghost' was right in front of me, on the wall!

  1. I am glad you found the wheezy sound! I am also glad it wasn't a "ghost"! I could have told you that your house isn't haunted! Halloween is right around the corner so somone might try a prank on you. That kind of prank----I don't think is funny. Love, Ms. Nancy
