An April Ghost Story

My mom has given me lots of advice throughout the years, some of which I’ve actually taken.   A good deal of her advice centered around social protocol, and practically since birth, she has been warning me about the dangers of discussing religion, politics, and money with strangers.  In my case, there isn’t much to worry about: I’m not rude enough to ask how much someone makes, I have zero interest in politics, and I don’t consider myself religious.  As ...
