Urg... My nana always told me "It's god trying to contact you" when I mentioned anything
she would deny demons and spirits to the end, then suddenly turn around and say "yes they are real" >< So I do not really tell anyone anything. My bf knows of what I tell him though :p he says it is really creepy but he has seen worse.
Apparently his friend P'Od something off, messing around in what he should have left alone. He took a fire poker to the shoulder, and then off to the looney bin because 1. the doors and windows were locked 2. the alarm was on 3. they do not have a fire place or fire pokers in the house. so "obviously" he was batty. :/
On a second note, ouch. That would hurt.
