How to talk to a wanna-be ghost hunter

7 December, 2011 // 0 Comments

I noticed that someone linked to my blog over on the SGU forum, in a post where the author was asking others for advice about a potential partner that wanted to join a ghost hunting team. They were wondering what they should do because they’re a skeptic and their potential mate wanted to join a team that goes out looking for ghosts, and [...]

No doubt I'll be told I am wrong for what I have written, or that I don't 'get it', and that's fine because you're all entitled to your own opinions just as I am mine. However, for what it is worth, you'd only need to ask me for forgiveness to get it. [...]

Suddenly the countdown to Halloween is upon us and I’m vaguely aware of the fact that I’ve been planning for this month for a long time because of the various talks I have coming up.
