Player Ghost Stories: “It definitely *wasn’t* a Blue Light Special…”

Posted by

As we wrap up another outstanding set of ghost stories as remembered by our players, we finish with one that involves a wee child, her twin sister and a mysterious old lady engulfed in blue light…

1. What is your name:

My name is Mitzi.

2. Are you in a Club. If so, which one?

I am in the Freakytikis. Everyone is laid back and fun. As a rule, there is great communication between players.

3. Who is your favorite Solitaire TriPeaks character?

Gotta be Poi, love my four legged friends (arf arf)!

4. Okay… Tell us your story…

When I was nine or ten I shared a bed in the same bedroom as my twin.

Once night, in the middle of the night, I woke up and the room had a bluish tint. I looked at my sister and laying next to her was a little old lady. She had white hair up in a bun and had on a white high-necked ruffled nightgown. She was kind of blueish too. After a minute or two I got freaked out and went running to my parents room. I told them why I was scared and my dad asked where my sister was. Mom said that she should be right there cause she saw her right behind me when I came into their room.

Well, she wasn’t there so my daddy walked me back to my room and there was my sister snoozing away, but no little old lady. Dad convinced me I must have had a dream and I went back to sleep. The next morning my sister and I went to my Grandma’s house, who lived right next door and who watched us while my parents worked. The first thing my Grandma said was “What was that blue light in your house in the middle of the night?”

I have been convinced ever since (and I’m now just shy of being 75 years old) that ghosts exist! (BTW I moved into another bedroom after that night!)

5. Would you say this experience changed your life? If so, how so?

For quite a while I was a scaredy cat, but eventually came to the conclusion that there are spirits among us and that not all ghosts are harmful. My little blue lady must have just needed to rest or may have been someone who died in that room.

6. Would you want to have the experience again?

Actually no. It creeped me out at the time and still does when the memory crosses my mind. The spirit caused me no harm, but it was freaky.

7. Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Just to wish everyone a Happy Halloween and caution then about little blue ladies!
