Happy Monday, awesome Moxie-Dude readers!
And while I’m perfectly aware that the words “happy” and “Monday” should never be put in the same sentence together – never mind RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER – I remain hopeful.
Did you know that today is a full moon? Yup. And it explains the following conversation I heard between two women in their early 20s while I was writing at a coffee shop on Saturday.
Woman with messed up haircut (although I think her hair was on purpose): Do you believe in ghosts?
As you can imagine, this got my attention and although I continued looking at my laptop screen, the focused look on my face was more about straining to hear every word she would say next than about what I was actually working on.
Her friend: Only when I’m alone in my apartment at night. Why?
Messed-up hair woman: I think I saw one this morning.
Her friend: Get out!
Messed-up hair woman: I’m telling you. I was jogging by the cemetery and I’m sure I saw a little boy dressed in a suit sitting on a tombstone.
Her friend: And you think he was a ghost?
Messed-up hair woman: Yeah.
Her friend: Hmmmm. Are sure? I mean, maybe it WAS a boy.
Messed-up hair woman: No I’m pretty sure it was a ghost. It’s like one second he was there and the next he wasn’t. It was really creepy.
Her friend: Hmmmm. So I’m thinking of breaking up with Alex.
I need to ask: who goes from talking about seeing a ghost to breaking up with their boyfriend?
Clearly people today have the attention span of a traffic light. Speaking of which, that’s when I lost interest in their conversation and decided to pack it in and go home – only to find my dogs lying on the couch, watching the movie “Psycho”.
Usually they jump off the couch as soon as they hear my key in the door but they were at the shower scene so naturally didn’t hear me come in.
Coincidence? I think NOT. Especially since no one else was home and I NEVER leave the TV on when I’m not home.
Now THAT’S creepy.
