Is there a goblin in the house?

Have you seen them? They are small,  around 3 feet tall, and they look disgusting. Mucus drips from their noses and mouths. When this snot gets on people, it burns the skin. Their eyes are small and beady, black in color. Their skin can appear any color from black, grey, and even green. One of the scarier features of this thing is its teeth. They are ragged and sharp. Often something like little pieces of meat hang from the teeth edges.

Okay, I am not saying this next fact to be funny, but when they are around, they smell like farts. I know what you are thinking, but a few people have told me this. They have described it like the worst fart you have ever smelled. The reason I mention this is because one man told me that he and his kids kept seeing this thing in his house at night. It stunk. Without fail, the next day, the family dog would go to where the goblin had been and poop on that spot. This was not typical. The dog was fully house trained. Another woman said something similar.

Personally I believe these little monsters lure pets to a certain spot in your house and entice them to go to the bathroom there to mark their territory. The little terrors get a big laugh out if it.

Goblins make life miserable for everyone. They are nothing but trouble. While not as malicious as a demon, they are mean and want to do mischief. It’s like having a spoiled rotten brat in your house who purposely leaves toys on the stairs so you trip and fall. That’s the kind of thing these creatures will do. 

They make a low groan, kind of like a bullfrog. Their vocalizations tends to be deep in tone. Occasionally, they make a quick set of sounds which is a little different. It is like the ticking sound when your engine won’t turn over. Now the most weird thing is that some people report that goblins will talk. If you catch them when they don’t want to be seen, they will engage in a conversation. It is as if since you caught them, they owe you the courtesy of a talk. 

Last, goblins steal. They are greedy and will take small items. Unlike most poltergeist situations, the items taken do not come back. A talisman has been known to ward them off. Sometimes they will accept an offering of food in order to leave you alone. If they really don’t like you, they will make your plumbing act up, and your toilets will never work right. Your house will always smell as if the little jerk was there laughing at you.

All kinds of strange creatures exist. We may laugh or make fun of such stories, yet people of all backgrounds report these things. They are not all crazy. And you know that legends always come from somewhere. Too many people are quick to dismiss the supernatural. Even some in the field scoff at the strangest tales when they should know better since they have seen so many unusual happenings themselves. Don’t blow off someone who tells you these stories. They may very well be telling the truth.
