Chalk It Up to a Ghost
“When I was about 10 years old, I was convinced that there was the ghost of a little girl in my room. I would talk to her every night, and even though she wouldn’t respond, I always knew she was there.
One night I decided I wanted her to respond to me, so I looked all over my room for a piece of paper, but I couldn’t find one. Instead I pulled out an old, tiny, dusty chalkboard from my closet and set it on my bed next to a piece of chalk. I wasn’t quite sure what to ask, so I just said, “Um, so how many years have you been dead? Write your answer on the chalkboard if you are really here.’ Not thinking it would work, I fell asleep.
The next morning I got up, and looked at the chalkboard. There was no writing on it, so I picked it up to put it back in my closet. When I was walking there, the chalkboard hit the light. You could clearly see, written in the dust, the number 111. I don’t try to communicate with her anymore.”
