A Ghost Tale for Tuesday

I was in the car this morning, dropping my daughter off at before-school chorus practice, and heard an interesting ghost story... on NPR's business news. I thought I'd share, in case you missed it.

It seems that there is a woman selling ghosts on eBay.


She lives in a (formerly) haunted house, where there were two spirit presences bothering her. One was an older "distinguished" gentleman, the other an "obstreperous young girl." (Those were the words used in the business report, really.)

She was (supposedly) able to capture the ghosts and put them in bottles, using a liberal application of holy water to contain them.

And then she decided to auction them on eBay. Bidding ended at $2,000 for the pair. The seller claims the proceeds will all go to charity, minus her exorcism fee.

There's a book in there somewhere...
