So Lucy may have officially banished her resident ghost "do do" from our house only to replace it with "the hopper". "Do do" has followed Lucy since the early days, like when she first learned to talk which is why I think it was called "do do". "Do do" was pretty scary, the stuff of bad dreams and she'd see him almost everywhere around the house. I actually got a little freaked a couple times when she'd gasp and say (in a whisper) "momma, do do is right there" pointing to the ceiling or her dresser or a spot in the garage.
This morning the first words out of her mouth were "momma, the hopper bit me on the tummy", "the hopper have teeth" and on and on she went, even telling both of the cats about the incident.
She was very serious about "the hopper" but was unable to provide a description except that "it have teeth and it goes growl".
