who's moving it?!

It was dark.  We really had little choice of it, since there was no electricity.

We lit a candle.  I don't remember where it came from.

We didn't have any furniture yet, just a few boxes.

There was a bag.  A paper sack.  We ripped it into individual pieces.

On each piece, we wrote a letter of the alphabet.  Two more pieces for "yes" and "no".

We arranged the letters in a circle on the bare countertop.





Then there was this cheapo piece of metal, like a disposable ashtray or something.  We bent it to fit our needs.

I don't remember the questions.  

The answers, though, were getting creepy.

Then "we" started to spell something.

Midway, Guano blew all the bits of paper sack, scattering them off and around the countertop.

We all shook our hands about, as if we'd just seen a...

SH*T!  Turn on the lights!....  CRAP!!



I'm losing it with Mama Kat again this week.

2.) Spooky! Tell us about your encounter with a Ouija board!

...not that I believe any of that Ouija stuff... heh....

I've never used a Ouija board but I always think the stories about them are SO scary!

I love October... except for the scary stuff. I could never bring myself to use a Ouija board, or watch scary movies, or go to haunted houses.
This was a fun story, but I must admit, I was a little freaked out when you yelled.

I remember usigng Ouija board once. I was in 4th grade and a friend had one in her game cupboard. I don't remember ever feeling as if anyone or anything else was in charge of the spelling.

I read Mama Kat's Ouija board story. Gave me chills!

I like a good scare every now and then. I wasn't too scared until I realized my big brother was scared! Sorry about the yelling, it couldn't be helped.

I remember someone bringing one to a slumber party once. I don't think "the spirits" wanted anything to do with us.

ONE time did I allow my friends to get me to play with a Ouija board. They freak me out!

We used to do that when I was a kid - standard Halloween stuff!

Of course, someone was clearly pushing the glass...

I had some friends when I was young whose parents wouldn't let them mess with Ouija boards. Until then, I didn't have much interest. But say something's not allowed and I wanna try!

Abby said...

Yeah, it's all in the presentation. I think our candle-lit scraps of paper made it more spooky than pulling something out of a Hasbro box.

It was a box from a deck of playing cards. We opened the flap and folded it to make it a pointer.

Skeptical, the jist of the first questions were to establish a modicum of credibility.....a test, so to speak. To my surprise, it seemed to have passed.


I remember two answers in particular. We stopped as the last answer was still forming....

Abby said...

OH yeah - a deck of cards box. I remember the establishing of "a modicum of credibility", but don't remember the questions specifically. I DO remember the last question, and the last almost answer!!

That's actually a pretty cool idea for things to do when you don't have power. Although my "experience" with that game was basically torturing my little brother, who was 14 at the time. I think the board said he'd be a virgin until after college.
