My friend, Tom, says that clothes must have an afterlife because ghosts are always seen wearing clothes..at least the ghosts I've seen.
A Ghost Story: Many years back I bought a pair of Super Cute Shoes at the Salvation Army. They fit me PERFECTLY. And they were Extremely Comfortable. It was like they were made for me! They looked a lot like these shoes:
So I put them on and headed out the door. Footloose and Fancy Free. I loved my New Shoes. But after a very short time they started to Hurt my Feet. I mean, REALLY hurt my feet. It was almost as if they had grown SMALLER. I could hardly bear it. I started to get blisters. Then my feet started to bleed. I have never had shoes that hurt so much. I had to hobble home in my bare and bloody feet.
A friend of mine had admired them so I said, "Here. Take them! They are YOURS."
The next day she wore THE SHOES. Midway into the day she started to feel unwell and actually fainted and fell down a flight of stairs. She was, thankfully, okay but she threw THE SHOES into the back of her closet where they mysteriously disappeared....
I'M PRETTY CERTAIN THAT THOSE SHOES WERE HAUNTED.
Too bad that we didn't know about the Vintage Store Psychic.
