Becoming a Convert.

Maybe if I stopped watching paranormal documentaries just before going to bed I might stop dreaming about black doors with brass knockers…

Tonight’s had an intro provided by one of those actors who is all voice and no talent. His voice is a deep dulcet (as they usually are) – intended to be creepy, but mostly redolent of laughable B movies that we thought we’d got over by now. We’ve come a long way in sixty years. He had a line:

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it can’t be denied that the dead outnumber the living.

Strong stuff. I’m convinced.

(The name of the ghost was Fanny, by the way, which produced a rash of meaningful comments on YouTube from men aged 25 going on 5. I’ve read worse.)
