Something Hauntingly Disturbing and Professor Poof

It’s gotten colder the last couple of weeks and I’m not complaining.  I love the cooler Fall weather and always have been partial to Fall and Winter than the hot, sweaty Summer.  As it’s turned colder the time is changing as well, the moon is still out as I start on my commute to work.  Of course, that will change once the stupid time change takes place in November to “fall back” one hour.  Seriously who thought this up?  I mean I know who did and why but we’re in the modern age and farmers/ranchers don’t need the extra day time to work.  Anyway, when I get to the office it’s still dark and cold, and apparently during the winter it’s colder than a witch’s titty inside.  We adjust the thermostats in the office constantly to keep it from getting too cold.  But yesterday myself and Phoebe came in and it was like a meat locker in here.  Then we went to check the thermostats and both of them had been changed to 66 degrees.  It took an entire two hours for this place to warm up.  Thank goodness we have space heaters to use because apparently this place constantly goes through this in the wintertime.  Today, same thing it was freezing in the office when I got here. I mean we waited outside for a bit to warm up in 58-degree weather.  Yes, I’m sure my friends up in Canada and Alaska are laughing at this Texas girl working in New Mexico complain about 58-degree weather.  But I’m not complaining we were warming up in 58-degree weather because the office was so cold.   Anyway, I asked Phoebe if she’d adjusted the thermostats before she left the day before and she said no.  While we were having a meeting with my boss the men’s toilet flushed all by itself.

We all looked at each other and my boss went to go check the men’s restroom and it was empty.  Then Phoebe laughed and said maybe the ghost is flushing the toilets and changing the thermostats at night.  My boss and I looked at each other and I freaked out.  Phoebe just laughed it off but now, I’m not so sure that these things aren’t just happening.   Another thing that’s been happening is that my office chair is always by the filing cabinet that’s behind me every morning.  Phoebe said that the night cleaning crew probably just leaves it there after vacuuming the office every night.  But then the cleaning crew changed their time to come into the office to early morning.  And one of them told me they only vacuum Tuesday’s and Thursdays but that they always put all the office chairs back right by the desks.  So, now I’m thinking we’re being watched by some ghostly prankster who loves to change the thermostats, flush the toilets for the fuck of it and move around my office chair for kicks.  

Ghost Horse……YES, GHOST HORSE!!

All of what’s going on in the office doesn’t help, especially with a story I heard from one of the agricultural students last week about a black horse that appears at night on campus in the equine lab/training/housing facility and the road behind our office.  I started laughing and told him to stop pulling my leg and the other student said that it was true.  Last year they put in night cameras to keep on eye on the horses because one of them learned how to open the latch to its stall door (I’m telling you animals are smarter than humans sometimes. ) Apparently the camera caught a dark shadowy horse like figure running around the training ground and she showed me the video they caught last November.  Now I’m even more freaked out because what comes to mind is the horse belonging to the Headless Horseman from the story of Sleepy Hollow.  That motherfucker was an evil horse with red eyes.  Okay no it wasn’t but that’s what I think of when the students tell me (and showed me) there’s a black ghost horse roaming around behind our office building.  I’m creeped out just writing about it, thinking it’s the ghost horse that’s turning our thermostat’s down to 66-degrees (but like how if it has hooves rather than fingers?) and randomly flushing the toilets and messing with my office chair!

Professor Poof

Remember the agriculture/livestock professor that hit my car a few weeks back?  Well he’s disappeared because I haven’t seen him for over a week and a half.  So the other day I went out to the capra (goat) dairy/lab facility next door to ask one of the students if they’d seen Professor Wonderful.  Then another instructor came out and told me he’d gone back to UNM (University of New Mexico) Agri-Extension facility in Albuquerque because he was only a visiting professor and had completed his year of instruction here on campus.   I was…. saddened to find that he just left and not even an email or a in person goodbye.  Or to even tell me he was a visiting professor and he’d be leaving soon, but whatever this seems to be a theme with men in my life.  So, it turns out Professor Wonderful turned into Professor Poof and just disappeared on me.  Speaking of stupid men, JMR as it turns out, is still trying to sneak his way back into my life…… be continued.

Until next time……this is the Huntress, saying…”Don’t be a Moth Around a Dim Yellow Bulb, Be a Moth to a Flame, Make it worth the Burn!”

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. Pity about the Professor. What is wrong with men? A simple wave even. Truthfully, it’s for the best because if it had been at the beginning of his visit, he might have broken your heart when he left. But he is still slightly dickish for not having mentioned it in the first place.
    We’ve got another 2 months at least before we see temps in the 50’s – if we’re lucky. I just want to be done with the 90’s soon!

    1. I suppose your right but still dickish nonetheless as you said. I’m so glad we’re out of the 100’s and 90’s here already. It’s hell out there when your commute is 40 mins long in the heat even with air conditioning! Hope you see some relief soon Barb!


      1. Restraining orders aren’t worth the ‘poofer’ they’re written on if the subject of the r.o. is an a.h. No doubt your son and a rottweiler or pit bull would be much more convincing.

  2. I told you JMR wasn’t done. ::SMH::

    I’m sad to hear about the profesdor though—he seemed so dang promising! 😢

    Put a camera up in your office and find out what’s going on. I’m sure there is a logical explanation for all of it.

    1. Thanks Heather, I feel kinda dumbed about Prof. Poof. As for the camera, I’m not sure I want to see the black ghost horse….”horsing” around in my office….lol. As for JMR, that dude just needs to get the hell out of my path!

  3. What creepiness! Perfect for the season. I like the cooler temps too, but I don’t like feeling cold. The self-lowering thermostats are a little odd. I’d blame the horse for that one and the flushing toilet. Could the cleaning crew be moving chairs to empty trashcans? Just a thought. And you have to watch the film of the black ghost horse… if you dare! 🙂

    1. Creepy for sure! I’m still not convinced that what’s going on around here isn’t supernatural. I just don’t want it to happen while I’m alone in the office. Which occurs about once a week. There’s a film of the black ghost horse?!!

      1. Oh, yes…lol. The video and although I saw it on the students cell phone, was no less creepy. I mean I could clearly see the silhouette of what looks like a pretty big horse galloping around the training area. It looked like a dark grey shadow of a horse. And there are lights from the back of the lot too. But that was clearly an apparition of a horse. I came in this morning and my desk chair was in the hallway…..I’m even more creeped out now!
