The other week I indulged a longtime idle curiosity to find out if there was anything for 'afters' as it were, and purchased a Ouija board for £7.99 on eBay.
It arrived a couple of days later.
My friend and I read the instructions and tried it that weekend.
After declaring the board 'open' and politely asking - 'is there anyone nice out there who wishes to communicate with either of us?' we waited,
We repeated the request, alternately staring at the planchette our fingertips rested on, the lighted candles, and each other, until it became embarrassing.
Eventually I asked 'is there anybody there at all who would like to communicate with either myself or Terry?'
Not a sausage.
Proof positive that there is no life after death.
I am seeking a refund. (for the Ouija board as well).
Though upon reflection, perhaps asking if 'any body' was there
was the wrong question! Or perhaps an ethernet search is as exacting as an internet search. Or maybe I just don't know enough dead people.
