My name is Susan and I’m a Haunt-a-holic

I give in. Time to confess and come clean. I’m addicted to Halloween, ghost stories, and spooky places. My name is Susan and I’m a Haunt-a-holic.

I’m not proud of this dirty little secret… oh, heck – who am I kidding? I’m like a kid with a new Sleepy Hollow bedsheet set, glow-in-the dark Svengoolie tee-shirt, who’s high on Count Chocula. Seriously. It’s not a secret.

I’m not alone. My BFF is just as addicted. We recently won a silent auction prize for a photo shoot. Guess where? Cemetery. Of course. Dressed in the gothiest best we could muster for women with zero-level goth closets. Lots of black eyeshadow helped.

Movies. Knick-knacks. Cheesy tv shows. Trips to haunted insane asylums – oh baby. All true – especially that last item. My summer vacation this year is a long girl’s weekend down to Louisville, KY for the Waverly Hills Sanitorium tour. Guaranteed to freak ourselves out but good.MV5BMTM4NDk5ODA4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTg3MDAwMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR1,0,214,317_AL_

The point? It’s time for you and me to stand up and be counted! Admit who and what we are. No more hiding in dank and musty shadows pretending to be a poltergeist. Or is that just me? Eh, it’s a hobby.

Are you a Haunt-a-holic? Solidarity Sisters and Brothers of the Night. Raise your candelabra high and repeat after me, “I am one with my childlike glee at watching “The Haunting” every few months (or insert your favorite ghoulish indulgence here).

I’m done asking why. Finished with wondering if it was a flaw in how I was raised. If I’m actually just a morbid person living a double life as someone cheerful and lighthearted with respectable hobbies like pinning dead insects to a board, framing and displaying them in the parlor.

We need a salute. Something like Michael Jackson’s Thriller zombie pose. We can vote on it at our next meet and screech.

Bwahahahaaaa!!!
