I've always had a slight fascination with all things paranormal. Granted, I'm not in my bedroom conjuring up spirits with a Ouija board or anything like that, but I can listen to ghost stories and watch shows about hauntings all day long. My slight fascination started when I was a young lass, about 8 or so. Two simple words, uttered by a diminutive child, would be my first glimpse into the afterlife...
Poltergeist, my friends. This movie scared me to death. This movie made me have nightmares for weeks. This movie is one of the reasons why I refuse to live next to or near a cemetery. This movie is why I don't like unfinished swimming pools. This movie is what made me crazy enough to do what I'm about to do.
Can you guess what I'm about to do?
I've decided to become a part of the TAPS/Ghost Hunters team and do my own ghost hunting at one of the country's most haunted homes - The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana. Jason and Grant contacted me personally and asked me to help them out since I'm such an expert in the field.
Nah, I kid.
I'm not really going to be a part of the TAPS team, I'm just going with some of my fun family members to see if we can be spooked enough to leave out of there in the middle of the night. According to the stories we've heard, not many people make it through the night in that place. We shall see.
I talk a big game while I'm sitting in my unhaunted house, but methinks I'll have some fun (and scary) stories to share with you all once I get back - maybe even some pictures. Either that or I'll just find some ghost pictures online and pass them off as my own. That's the honest thing to do.
So, anyone else out there fascinated with ghosts and ghost stories? Have you ever had a paranormal experience? Care to share? Leave a comment and let me know. I'll be following up once our trip is over to let you know how it turned out. That is, if I'm not in therapy 24/7 to cure myself of the scare.
