Mister Ron’s Basement # 1798
Halloween is approaching, and in commemoration, we are presenting scary, but fun stories from Ambrose Bierce’s 1903 collection, ’Can Such Things Be?’
Today’s ghostly tale concerns a shopkeeper who never missed a day of work for over 30 years, and seems to have not let death break him of the habit. It’s called ‘A Jug of Sirup.’
This one should NOT be missed!
Time: approx seventeen and a half minutes
