What do you think of when you hear the word GHOST? Does a person covered in a sheet come to mind (Casper) or do you think more of the voice in the TV (Poltergeist)? Do you feel that ghosts are loved ones who haven't crossed yet (GHOST) or are someone with unfinished business?
Most of us have a pretty positive perception of ghosts. We are fascinated by them and some people even go on hunts to see them with their own eyes. I had a ghostly encounter at a historic hotel in San Antonio a few years ago. Nothing too scary. More comforting.
But what if the ghost was dangerous? Or if the ghost wanted to steal your man?

Having discovered and identified her often invisible roommates Elisabeth and Jonathan Wilkerson, Morgan knew she would have to come to terms with no longer living alone and adjust to the nocturnal habits of other-worldly roommates.
But living with ghosts was not nearly as easy as it sounded. For one thing, they had no regard for personal space or time of day. Oddly, they also had boundless energy. These issues frequently kept her up at night and she often had to report to work at the hospital more tired than when she’d left the day before.
As the charge nurse in the Good Samaritan Hospital Emergency Center in Metro Detroit, Morgan was often exhausted, hungry, and tense when she got home from a ten-hour shift. The last thing she needed or wanted was to witness their ghost parties in the middle of the night, or their excessively romantic public displays of affection in the kitchen and back yard for all the world to see. Although, as of yet, no one on the block had complained about seeing the Wilkersons, she could only hope they were invisible to the folks in the nearby houses.
She concluded that the best way to manage the situation was to accept their existence and establish rules about alone time and personal boundaries. To her surprise, the Wilkersons also had concerns. After a lengthy, yet civilized conversation, a compromise was reached in order to keep a happy home for all occupants. It was resolved that Morgan would have no interruptions from the Wilkersons while entertaining unless she specifically summoned them to appear. She would also have absolute privacy in the bathroom and bedroom. In turn, the Wilkersons requested that Morgan stay away from their parties and she was not to interrupt them when they were dancing inside or outside the house. So far, so good and the formal agreement was working.
