I’m a very skeptical person. I don’t read my horoscope. The only reason I read my fortune is because it is inside of a delicious, delicious cookie. I have never had anything “paranormal” happen to me, except one time I was having relatives over for dinner and before those awesome “no-boil” lasagna noodles were invented I was boiling pasta, and when I went to assemble my lasagna I noticed that one of my noodles had a perfect imprint of a very angry looking skull on it! I showed everyone, and put the noodle into its very own tupperware container, and forgot to keep it damp so my skull vanished. Sad face. But I did get to say I had a “Death Noodle” and that was pretty exciting for about two hours. I do not think my pasta was possessed by an angry demon, but it was a super cool fluke and it made me feel my lasagna was super hardcore. Cool story bro! Anyway, I ain’t scared of no ghosts. I don’t believe in ghosts.
However, I do realize that many people do believe in ghosts and past lives and all of that voodoo and good for them. And if you are one of those people and you have a kid who walks around telling everyone that they see dead people or have a dead person living inside of them, you can put them on reality TV! Get ready for your 15 minutes of fame little spooky kids! From The Huffington Post:
A Los Angeles production company is currently holding a nationwide casting call for children who claim to have, or have had, past life memories for a new reality series, “Ghost Inside My Child,” scheduled to air on the Bio Channel later this year.
A pilot episode of the series aired a few months ago, with three kids who had gone through various steps of recovering memories of their alleged past lives.
Now, producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina – who are married to each other — are looking for other families with kids who, as the request states, “have inexplicable memories and experiences of another life.”
“We were pregnant at the time when the idea first came to us,” Fincioen told The Huffington Post. “We thought what would we do if this happened with our daughter? It really was a phenomenon. We wanted to tell these parents’ stories without trying to prove or disprove them.”
This is just me, but I think if my child was telling everyone that they had a ghost inside of them or were the reincarnation of someone else, I would probably take them to a therapist instead of calling a casting director to put them on a TV show. I’m sure they are reincarnated kids or at least kids who believe they are reincarnated, but there are also kids who go through phases where they believe very strongly that their imaginary friends are real. I would be too worried if I put my haunted kid on TV their jerky school friends would see it and tease them and call them “Ghost boy” or something.
I’m not saying all of your parents who believe in ghosts or believe your kid is reincarnated are wrong or liars or anything, it’s just that I tend not to believe things like this unless I actually have the experience happen to me. I’ve never seen a ghost and my kids have never spoken about seeing ghosts. All I have ever had is a delicious scary noodle.
