I’m A Screamer

OMG yesterday my neighbors must have had several heart attacks because of me.
I discovered Nancy Drew on Prime.
Binge watched yesterday and am still not done season 1.
Sure as hell hope that there is a season 2.
Set in today’s time the story follows Nancy and her 4 friends.
Bess, George, Ned and Ace.
Mystery.
A little romance.
Great characters.
Ghosts.
Possession.
More mystery.
I admit to one small stumbling block.
Scott Wolf from Party of Five.
I watched that show in my 20’s and he was played a teenager.
Now he is playing a father yet he only looks 10 years older than her.
Also the ages of the kids is indeterminate.
As T asked last night ‘Mom how old are those kids?’
Not sure but I must have told y’all that I love to be scared.
T and I scare one another with great delight.
When he got home last night I was still watching.
He wanted to know if I was aware there were books that I could read.
I started to say I read when I was a little girl but stopped myself and said I was younger.
He than told me I was old.
I was telling him about my screaming and how the neighbors had been outside.
Did not tell him I nearly lost my dinner when I jumped at one point.
T: Oh mom you obviously have not watched enough scary movies.
Me: I have watched a lot of scary movies. This is not scary she just appears.
T: Who is she?
Me: Shhhhhhhh there is too much going on for me to explain to you.
T: What are the kids doing?
Me:
T: Mom what is happening?
Me: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
We are sitting there and the ghost appears again.
I scream and look at Tember.
I thought I saw him flinch but he looks over at me cool as a cucumber.
I howled with laughter.
Me: I love being scared you know that.
T: Mom I gotta admit that one got me. Does she often just appear?
Me: T you are going to have to go back and watch from the beginning.
T: Are you crazy? And then spend all night worrying crazy chick is coming to get me?
I was not about to admit to him that I had some fair concerns about scary ghost lady.
But seriously if you get a chance and you like a strong good story line with mystery built in, this series is amazing.
That is me though.
But c’mon Nancy Drew!
We finished the episode and T went to set up his Xbox and I got ready to crawl into bed.
I was laying there playing Clockmaker on my phone and I felt my pillow dip.
Figured it was Lucky or Thomas coming to lay by my head.
Suddenly this dark shape flies over me and hits my shoulder.
I screamed bloody murder.
As I only saw the dark shape I am assuming it was Loki.
I hope it was Loki.
And then cried I was laughing so hard.
T was not impressed.
I laid in bed laughing for a good five minutes.
Tears rolling down my cheeks.
And as I drifted off I reminded him that this time if he hears me yelling in my sleep to please come and wake me up not hide under the blankets like last time.

  1. Well dang, that headline was a bit deceptive no? Here l was getting the popcorn ready, nestling down to read some sordid little story of deviancy in the buxom boudoir – but alas no – hahaha 🙂
