I don't know what it is. Perhaps the stars were out of alignment. Perhaps Mercury was in retrograde. Perhaps something was in the water.
The fact is, the Ebay Jinx has not been put to rest. See "The Dreaded Ebay Jinx!" post.
It makes me think of Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors where Amanda Krueger
(Sister Mary Helena) says:
"The unquiet spirit must be laid to rest. It is an abomination to God and to man."
I must defeat the Ebay demon before it is too late.
There is only one way to start.
I'll be going to Ebay now and you know what I'll be shopping for...
So as I venture off to parts unknown I will leave you with these words:
"You are about to attend a funeral...one that's long overdue"
(Nightmare on Elm St 3 - Dream Warriors.)
Die Demon Die!! The Ebay Jinx will be laid to rest!!
