The General Body Meeting

I looked at the resort lovingly. I had finally arrived for THE event that I looked forward to the entire year.

Acres of landscaped gardens and water bodies, peppered with exotic art installations and at the center of it all, the majestic heart of the resort, the Convention Center. It couldn’t get better than this.

I walked into the boardroom for the meeting and looked around. I could see no one else there.

Satisfied, I cleared my throat, and in a grave, raspy voice, announced,  “Let the 3561st Annual General Body Meeting of the International Association of Ghosts & Spirits(iAGS) begin.”

    Nicely done, Anurag. Lots of people have gone with the ghost take this week. Is there something in the pic that I missed?

    Great take on the prompt. I like the idea of ghosts having their own Association.
