“Your house is haunted,” are Carl’s first words when Jay asks him for his opinion. “Spectacularly haunted,” are his second words, and everything after that is just evidence pointing out why his opening statement is correct.
Jay’s first house is big, has heating and air, and a water heater he would happily trade his soul for. Most importantly though, it’s affordable. So what if it is a little bit haunted? Jay can think of worse things for a house to have than a good looking ghost who seems to like hanging out in his bed.
