A door slammed, breaking the too-silent silence that had pervaded until then. The floorboards creaked, and cupboard hinges gave off variable-pitch squeals. It sent a chill cascading through me; I live alone. Others might think these sounds were ghost sounds, but I knew better.
Contrary to popular belief, ghosts can't open doors, don't have footsteps, and couldn't intervene in the affairs of something so corporeally mundane as a cupboard even if they wanted to. Most of us are way over the physical realm. That doesn't mean we don't get the creeps when paranormal sounds are heard in our houses.
