In Six Words: What’s Your Caregiving Ghost Story?

As a kid, I LOVED Casper the Friendly Ghost. (Okay, I still do!)

Monday’s talk show with ghost-writer Kristi Petersen Schoonover (you can read the recap and listen to the show here) made me think about ghost stories. Which always leads me to a six-word story.

So, even though Halloween is over, let’s tell caregiving ghost stories. But in six words.

Like this:

Under the full moon, I howl.

The walker moves–owner-less–toward me.*

As darkness comes, incontinence supplies disappear.

Please share your six-word ghost stories in our comments section, below. Have fun!

*A six-word story rule: A hyphenated word counts as one word.
