a man we call "Jeremiah"
You can call me pink and glittery, you can call me wishy-washy, and you could call me Al, but you may call me crazy after my story today. Do you believe in ghosts? This morning I found myself alone in our warehouse as Jay claimed to be at the dentist(it took him half of the day at this "dentist" hmmm). As I busied myself doing this and that, I caught the image of a man crossing the back door. At first I thought it must be Jay, but as I called his name, there was no answer. I realized it must be Jeremiah. Jeremiah is the name that Jay gave to our spirit that lives in the warehouse. It all started about 3 years ago when we noticed a shadowy figure that would move across the warehouse. At first, neither of us knew what it was or whether we should ask the other if he had seen it too. I finally gave in and asked Jay, "Did you just see that?" We both decided that our spirit meant no harm and we should probably keep this to ourselves(people already think we are little looney)! Time passed and we had a friend of ours visiting one day. As we stood talking, she suddenly turned and said, "What was that? Did you see that?" We explained our spirit situation and she firmly agreed that it was there! One afternoon when Jay was feeling down and in the warehouse alone, he had a conversation with the spirit. He believes that it told him that his name is Jeremiah, so from that day forward, our spirit has been Jeremiah. He comes and goes and never bothers us any more than to move an object from place to place. I kinda think that he may actually like us a little bit. Today, his presence moved back and forth in front of the door as if he was keeping guard for me. I told him "thank you". Do you believe in ghosts?
