Things That Go Bump In The Store!
There are times that I even catch myself in a sudden jump or gasp. Anyone whom has visited knows that there are more than enough creeps hanging around. Lifesize Leatherface, menacing Darth Maul, the cloaked Count...I can't tell you how many times I catch these out of the corner of my eye and jump when I know nobody should be in the store!
In the same fashion I was waiting on some self-guided haunt cd's to arrive at the store. They were hand delivered on a chilly Sunday afternoon. Thanks Bob of Reaper Madness! I took the newest editions to the store down into my office to retrieve a request slip for a customer whom asked to be contacted when they arrived. I came upstairs from the Galerie, called the number and asked for Joe...to my surprise I heard a voice from the back of the store answer and say "This is he." WOW did I jump!
It turns out he and his wife arrived while I was downstairs. What makes this serendipitous haunting even spookier is that he came in from Crowne Pointe Indiana only because hiw wife wanted to try the delicious Depot Diner down the street and he figured he would stop in since he was in the area!
Remember "When A Stranger Calls"...this was more like "When A Stranger Answers!" & when it is 5 feet away from where you are standing it's all-the-more creepy!
