Ghosts, graveyards and cemeteries came to mind when I juggled with this week’s Trifecta challenge …….. don’t ask me why!
So many balls to juggle. So many plates to keep spinning. It’s a nightmare. Only need one of them to come crashing to the ground and the whole thing could fall apart.
I knew it was going to be difficult when I took the job on but nobody warned me how chaotic the whole thing would be. If I could, I’d resign tomorrow, let some other fool take over but I can’t. I’m only a hundred years into a five hundred year tenure.
With hindsight I should never have agreed to the position but, at the time, it seemed like the right move. If I’m honest I was flattered. It’s not every day you get offered the job of Chair of the International Ghosts and Ghouls Association. Mind you I should have guessed there was more to it when I heard that Headless Harry and Bloody Mary had both turned the post down.
Well, best get on, moaning and groaning like this isn’t going to help. Now where was I?
I see there’s another incident of vampires taking over a graveyard with a petition here from some very disgruntled ghosts. More complaints about ghouls in our stately homes not being scary enough. Then there’s this request from Buckingham Palace asking us to remove Henry VIII as he’s been upsetting some of the female visitors. Best tackle that one first.
Oh, what I’d give for a nice quiet lie down somewhere, preferably a very deep grave, in some far off cemetery.
