Have You Looked Under Your Bed Lately?

My friend Kelly suggested to me a few weeks ago that I should listen to a podcast she stumbled upon called Haunted AF. She learned how much I enjoy podcasts on our last drive up to GA; it’s a great way to pass the time.

This Haunted podcast is basically two hosts who talk with real people and their ghostly encounters. Some are your regular run of the mill ghosts, you know, Casper the friendly one, but some mention encounters with demons. Regular ghosts frighten me, but demons, devils & satan? They scare the BeJesus out of me.

I just drank holy water after I typed that.

I was hanging with the podcasts and this kind of being scared stuff until I listened to a podcast where people who were listening TO the podcasts were saying that they were starting to have MORE ghostly encounters and they thought it was BECAUSE they were listening to the podcasts. As if a ghost can travel through a podcast. Right? I mean that is preposterous!

Can we blame a haunting on my bad hair in 7th grade?

Earlier this week I had some time in the car, so I gave it a try. I was enjoying it in a kind of scared, but still interested type of way.

Literally the hairs were standing up on the back of my neck as I listened to a few stories from podcast listeners who were having said encounters. So, I immediately stopped listening to the podcasts because I was not taking a chance on my ghost trying to invade my life again. No flipping way Jose.

That post/link right up there is 100% true and I pray to never relive something like that again. If you care to read it, this is part two of that link up there.

I still get chills reading it, because it’s so vivid in my mind it could have been yesterday and not 40 years ago.

If you’re into scary stories and you aren’t afraid of them coming to get you through your speaker, take a listen. BONUS: they feature a “Dead Pet Of The Week” too; who knew pets could haunt you? I’m gonna have a seance and see if I can bring back my Cocoa bean.

Have any of you had any ghostly encounters?

  1. Oh my. I am going to have to come back and read those other two posts. Racing around like a nut job at the moment to clean the house because Ed’s college friend is coming and we haven’t had ‘company’ in FOREVER. Dust starts to appear normal if left unattended. I have to squeeze in allergy shots – oh, maybe while I sit and wait for 30 after shots. I have another major errand to run at noon, so I have less than 2 hours. I’ll be back for the ghost stories.

    Um, I remember doing a ouija board back in high school with my sister. We got FREAKED OUT, but no other ghostly encounters. Thanks goodness.

    “BONUS: they feature a “Dead Pet Of The Week” too; who knew pets could haunt you?” I DID! My cat HRH has been haunting me and my blog for years now. YEARS.

    And you can’t blame that Grade 7 haircut on “haunting.” I’d say the culprit was Farrah Fawcett-Majors, that bitch.

    I did tell my one friend about it because she loves the hell out of this stuff.

    I do love when you share your old-timey pictures. I can say “old-timey” because they are the same time period from wherest I come from. I think we shall useth this language whenst referring to olden pictures of yore. And so it will be.

  4. I haven’t looked under my bed lately and now I really don’t want to. I don’t think I’ve had any encounters with ghosts, but maybe I did and the trauma caused me to forget them? Oh dear, now I’m going to worry about this because I don’t have enough to fret over this year. So thanks.

  5. My youngest son still maintains that there was an old lady who used to pat him on the back in his upstairs bedroom at night.

    My husband inherited all his grandfather’s woodworking tools, and they are in the basement. When we first got them, there were a couple of times that a lathe or a saw would suddenly turn on. It was terribly unnerving, obviously. Finally, I went to the basement and said, “Grandpa, please stop. You’re upsetting the children.” It hasn’t happened since.

    My husband was extremely close to his grandparents his whole life. When they died, it was worse by far than when his parents died. I like to think they were around. They always did say they loved our house and wanted to trade homes with us.

  6. I think I’ll take a pass on listening to that podcast! I get easily freaked out like I am now after reading your ghost story! If you ever want to continue the creepy feeling just go to Reddit and search “what is the scariest thing your child has said to you” or something like that. It will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up!

    1. Jeanette, I’m gonna skip that reddit thankyouverymuch.
      When Linds was a toddler, she would tell me that she wanted to go SEE GOD. I was all, heck no and stop saying that!

    I read the two posts and wow, what a freaky experience!! Your story reminds me of when I was 10 and I had a friend who lived in a ground floor apartment. We’d hear footsteps and dragging above them, but the unit up there was empty! Her mom would hit the ceiling with the broom and it would stop for a bit. A few times we felt brave and would go bang on the front door and again it would stop. I guess you could say I’ve had a few unexplainable experiences too.

    I think I had that same hair at grade 8 graduation! I love that the people think they’re having more ghostly encounters because the podcast is haunted and not, ya know, the power of suggestion? I am both way too cynical to believe in ghosts and absolutely convinced that I have seen or heard one a time or two. Shut up, I’m complicated.
