The Shower Killer – Ethan’s World

Posted by

My neurotic son is always scared to shower. So while in the shower, he gets startled over nothing and starts screaming. I don’t know what he thinks he sees. To remedy this, he tries to talk to me or his mom while he’s in the shower. He’ll yell at us from the shower while we’re in the living room. He’ll start saying “Dad, Mom, how was your day? Um… What did you do? You know what happened to me today?… etc.” Just random bullshit to distract him from his fears. It is honestly really annoying.

So recently when he was frightened to shower on his own and needed me to talk to him while he was in the shower my natural fatherly instincts kicked in. I did everything I could to ensure him that he is safe and warm while I stood right next to him, coddling him and patiently waiting while he finished showering.  … ….

Is it the kind of lawyer who died during his last case and now his ghost goes around murdering children while they are in the shower?
