Those last two connected word balloons cracked me right up. I like the idea of him just going around with his PKE Meter checking the outlets because, when you’ve got a hammer, every ghost is a nail.

I’m not used to identifying with Reggie. It’s weird.

When I use the term “identifying with” I am referencing motivations, not actions. I don’t identify with Napoleon because he breathed and I breath, but because he wanted to take over the world. Like; every night,…
Reggie and I would both check the outlets, too. Not because I’m like Reggie, but because I’m OCD like that. “I can’t help it, I’m a born button pusher.”**

Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Give a man a volt meter and he will stick the probes into every single outlet to see if one makes the needle jump off of 0.

Wait… Reggie used an electrical device (and for that matter, one that you can easily hurt yourself with if you don’t know what you’re doing), and nothing burst into flames?

I’m not saying this place really is haunted, I’m just saying that something is up.

We have a long-abandoned building. *Why* does it have current in the walls? Those should have been long since shut off, no? It smacks of Rule of Funny that Reggie finds something and no one else twigs.
Also, we shifted into Daylight Savings last night, so half the clocks in the house are an hour(ish) slow.
