Kelli’s Ghost Story

Kelli is my two year old niece, going on three, and I’m her favorite Uncle.

I’ve read to her since before she could talk. Books and being read to is part of her upbringing.

Whenever we read to Kelli from a children’s book, we encourage interaction by asking her to describe the pictures.
When Kelli wants to tell me a story, she expects that same verbal interaction from me, otherwise I’m not paying attention, right?

She knows her Uncle and knows I like scary stories, so today…

Kelli: “Uncle want to hear a story?”
Me: “Sure.”
Kelli: “It’s a spooky story!”
Me: “Ooh! Okay.”
Kelli: “Once was a scary ghost! RAARRR!!!”
Me: “Whoa!”
Kelli: “But they’re no ghosts.”
Me: “Oh.”
Kelli: “But this ghost was real!”
Me: “Whoa!”
Kelli: “That’s weird, huh?”
Me: “Yeah.”
Kelli: “This ghost was afraid of SNAKES!”
Me: “Huh!”
Kelli: (shaking her head No) “He couldn’t scare snakes.”
Me: “Ah!”
Kelli: “… and …”
Me: ” … ”
Kelli: “And … The End.”
Me: “That was a good one.”
