Our office mate Jack has a rather unusual living arrangement; he’s sharing his flat with a real live (or should that be real dead?) ghost.
When Jack first told us about his supernatural experiences, we immediately decided he was off his rocker and started the process to have him committed to an insane asylum. Unfortunately he was able to prove to us that The Ghost was real (unfortunate because I quite fancied his desk; it’s got a window and everything).
Now The Ghost is invisible, intangible and unable to talk, however, it has found that it can use a touchscreen computer. So, now Jack and the Ghost type away to each other on Skype instant messenger chats.
After their initial good humoured exchanges things have gotten a little darker. Jack, you see, has a sense of humour with all the subtlety of a half brick. While the ghost has a rapier wit, but all the self-restraint of a sweet-toothed kid with a fist full of cash let loose in a candy shop.
This clash of personalities has led to their banter getting more offensive… hooray, all the better to write Skypes from The Ghost posts about. We don’t want nice fluffy-wuffy cuddly-wuddly chit chats do we? No, my friends, we want down and dirty bantering with threats and insults galore. And that’s exactly what we’ve been getting…
Is all this hostility between Jack and The Ghost getting you down or are you enjoying the cut and thrust of their verbal jousting? What do you think about The Ghost’s poltergeist powers getting stronger? Leave a comment and let us know.
