476. Monsters Like Sticking to the Increasingly Unaffordable McMansion Market Even Though All Their Friends are Downsizing

Think about this. When is the last time you heard about a haunted tiny house? Never. Tiny houses have one room where you sleep, cook, and shower basically in the same room. There are no haunted tiny houses. Ghosts like to spook around mansions and big houses with attics and basements and many bedrooms and creaky doors and fireplaces and hidden staircases. Tiny homes have none of these things.  

A ghost in a tiny house would be less of a haunting and more like living with a spouse that shares the same bedroom with you. Everywhere you look, there’s the ghost. It would be kind of cramped.

We monsters are going to skip the downsizing. Sure. It probably frees up much more time and money and worries.

But until they build tiny houses with hidden passages behind grandfather clocks that lead down to dungeons, we’ll just stay where we are, in this big, drafty house on the hill with an electricity bill that would make Dr. Frankenstein scream.

Monsters like haunting large houses
