Vege Pakoras

Conversation with my daughter about the ghost in my house. “Back from yoga! You know what’s weird, Clare? Almost every day, if not every day, it looks like someone has slept or sat on the the guest bed here. And I close the door at night! What do you think?”

 
Clare: “Whoa…. Weird. Animal? Person? Lock it.
 
At least they’re making the bed! Lol!”
 
Me: No, it’s closed and has a screen. Even while I am here. sending a pic.
 
Geez.
 
That’s not ok!
 
I’d go stay in there with my machete and wait for them. Lol…. But I’m wreck less like that.
 
I smoothe it down daily after the ghost sits or lays down, and sometimes, often, the pillow area is depressed quite a lot.
 
 
The outside doors were locked and Tiko was inside, today, and every day when I leave.  It’s a spirit.
 
And it’s always in a different way. Sometimes it looks like a whole body was there, and the pillow area indented.
 
That looks like an animal!
 
Like a cat
 
Or a ghost
 
its literally impossible to get in there. It’s a ghost.

The doors were locked and Tiko was inside. It’s a spirit.

    1. It can’t be tiko because I leave it locked and closed during the day,
      and thus it is still when I return home.

  1. How about leaving the guest bed unmade so it appears the room is in use? And put a half empty cup of tea next to the bed.

  2. Step1. Saute stuff
    Step 2. Scoop out the dough

    What dough? How did we get here?

    And, it looks like it could be such a tasty dish!!
