Ghost slamming doors

Straight Up Ghosts


Underground Seattle space at Yesler & Occidental, below Trinity Nightclub, 5/1/2013

When I worked for the Underground Tour, as part of my training I had to walk around the underground spaces solo and practice my spiels. In a space that was once a prohibition-era saloon, I was practicing my monologue and cheesy jokes when the hollow metal door (that was quite heavy) suddenly swung shut and then all the way back open, and I swear I heard something whisper in my ear. There was no one coming down the stairs, nor had anyone open the upper door yet. There was a tour group ahead of me in the next space so I wasted no time running to catch up with them, as it did not feel like a benevolent presence.
