Best Do Not Do This

I have been sick and only getting sicker. Last night I either saw a ghost in my apartment or dreamt that I saw a ghost in my apartment and I forgot about that for most of today but then remembered it tonight. The bizarre sleeping patterns of the homebound ill found me up at 3:30 this morning, thinking about the ghost I may or may not have seen in my little room last night and this lead to my googling (do not do this) "I think I saw a ghost in my bedroom last night" which lead me to this site called "yourghoststories.com" a clearinghouse for the posting of real life encounters with ghosts. Great. People, do not go to yourghoststories.com at 3:30 in the morning when you're feeling feverish and ill and sitting alone in your dark room, especially if you have the slightest bit of an imagination. I will never sleep again. Ever. Right now all I can think about is that if I turn off the light and try to sleep for sure some cold spectral hand will grab my ankle as it dangles off the side of my bed. The good thing about my ghost is I'm pretty sure it was of the sort that go away if you close your eyes in face the wall AND it doesn't have the power to penetrate the airspace of my mattress, either. So I've got that going for me.

That's it! I'm spending the night tonight. I'll bring my UV cameras and my fish net. That thing is as good as caught!

You basically just described my dream night. Ghosts. So awesome.

Laughed a lot at this. Mainly because when I am sick I get delirious and fixated on something so the picture of you up at 3 am looking up ghosts and thinking ghosts and feeling afraid to turn off the computer because of ghosts resonates with me.

Jeff's dream = Collin dressed in fish nets wrestling a ghost.
