Writing Prompt Project – Day 16

We’re halfway through the writing prompts!

Day 16 – If we assume ghosts are real, what type of ghost would you like to see?

Assuming ghosts are real, I don’t want to see any of them. I’d like to quote the Ghostbusters theme song and say “I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts”, but dude, ghosts are dead. In all honesty, if you’re dead, there’s no way that I should see you. That’s just against the laws of nature, science, and everything reasonable. Ghosts give themselves a bad name by hurling stuff around, slamming doors and making loud noises, and scaring the shit out of people. If they made more of an effort to have educated conversations or give meaningful advice, the thought of paranormal encounters may not be so bad.

Imagine a cool conversation with Abe Lincoln or some other historical figure. How cool would that be? I’d totally have a sit down with Harriet Tubman, toss back a few glasses of scotch with Frederick Douglass, or take a bite out of a massive chunk of mutton with Genghis Khan. That would be so much more insightful and productive than random plates flying through the air and my room being trashed. So assuming ghosts are real, they can do their thing, and I’ll do mine.
