The most terrified I've ever been was was the time I got called to do a home energy audit of the haunted house-as-a-system down the street. I still shudder when I think of that night. Yes, it was nighttime. The caller who hired me, a woman with a sultry voice, said that was the only time I could get into the home. The money was good, and I had no idea what perils awaited me there, so I agreed. Once I got into that house, though, I thought that was going to be my last night in this mortal life. I'm lucky to be here now, telling you this story.
