Speaking of Ghosts

I posted that last entry and thought about something funny that happened when we first bought our house four years ago. The two youngest kids were at my dad’s for the summer and Travis (ex husband) worked nights. So, it was usually just me and Smurf at the house.
One morning I got up to get ready for work and found Smurf laying with his body in his room and his head on his pillow out in the kitchen floor. I figured it must have gotten hot in his room and he laid there because there was an air vent in his room in that area and one right above his head in the kitchen. I didn’t really say anything to him about it cause well we all know teenagers are weird anyway.
The next day I woke up and he was laying that way again. I just shook my head and went on about getting ready for work. After a few days of this I finally got curious enough to ask him about it. He told me “Jennifer, I swear my room is haunted!” I just kind of chuckled and asked him what he was talking about. He told me that several times in the middle of the night his closet door would open and close all on it’s own. I was a little skeptical of this and went to play with his closet door. I found that for some reason it wouldn’t tightly close. You could just pull it open without turning the knob.
I talked to Travis about Smurf’s problem that evening and he just busted out laughing. Come to find out: The central air unit was housed in his closet when it would kick on and off it would push open the door and then suck it back in. We held an exorcism that night so he could feel comfortable enough to sleep in his room. Well, Travis fixed the door anyway.
