Really, though, who wouldn't with these impressive faces staring down?
Yes, the one on the right is a woman. (I'm hoping that the artist was less than illustrious and that she didn't really look like that...)
I do like this couple, though. I would wear a dress like that. (Maybe not in our current drought... but hey, I'm sure back then she was all the rage!)
The bottom photo here isn't even my relative. My mother saw this picture at an auction and decided that, since my father had so many interesting (read: icky) pictures commemorating his family, she ought to join in. (And, again, the one at the top right is a woman... I do feel sorry for her...)
Yes. I am actually related to these people. Lucky me.(Hopefully this doesn't mean that I will one day look like a man.) (Although come to think of it, the reason they're haunting me may be due to the fact that I insult them so frequently. Hmmm...)
What happened, you ask impulsively? Why do you think your house is haunted by these illustrious characters?
Well, for one, no one who looks that grumpy (I exclude the younger couple from this. Although... maybe they just LOOK innocent? Hmm...) could possibly witness the joy and excitement of our household (...we read a lot. That's exciting, right?) without being inspired to mischief.
In addition, I have had some experiences that cannot be fully explained. Like the time I woke up in the middle of the night after being slapped. (My face still hurt in the morning, and my hand was nowhere near.) Or the time that I saw floating lights all around my bedroom.
Or the time I was almost pushed over our staircase railing.
Now, I am naturally klutzy (I fully admit this) but even I do not flip over banisters without reason when facing completely the other direction. Nor can I explain the time I felt myself being literally PULLED down a set of stairs. (I was alone in the house, so it couldn't have been my parents and their dubious sense of humour.)
Let's just say, if you come to my house, stay away from staircases.
Have you had any haunting involvements, or do you simply think it's all inanity?
Oh, and in case you hadn't guessed from the insane number of I adjectives, this is my entry to Jenny Matlock's I linkup!
