Okay this is a creepy thing to wake up to on your bedroom floor.
Charlie McCarthy. With his eyes that follow you....that monocle...the mouth that mocks you. Really, really creepy.
My grandson had to camp out on my bedroom floor last night because he 'was afraid' of ghosts in the "red room" (to be fair, we do think of Stephen King and redrum when we say red room. Read The Shining if you don't get that. ) It's my grandchildren room, and he has slept in there many times. Okay--to be fair again, I usually lay with him while he falls asleep in there, or we turn the TV on to the cartoon channel. It was my youngest son's room when he lived at home and he and his girlfriend (who is now his wife) painted it red one year. We have softened it up with two white walls and some Americana looking quilt on the bed. It now also has a crib and a pak and play and a child's table and chairs. A bunch of Raggedy Ann dolls on a shelf. More shelves filled with hundreds of children's books (including his favorite Goosebumps ) What is there to be afraid of?
But he is, and yet, brings CREEPY CHARLIE MCCARTHY to bed with him?
I had the willies as I got out of bed this morning and had to step over old Charlie, who was right there on the floor looking up at me with his mocking eyes--they followed me to the bathroom, I just know it.
I hightailed it out of there fast and came downstairs to make coffee, grab my book and I kind of fell asleep in my chair again.
It just wasn't a good night with Charlie McCarthy in my room.
