The Pinch

This event took place sometime in the early 80’s after my uncle’s accidental death. I would also like to say that this happened to my mom.

It was probably a year after my uncle’s death that my mom and her mom went to visit his grave. My mother at the time was around 10 or 11 years old and did NOT want to be there.

She kept complaining that she didn’t want to be there and how she wanted to go home, and I think she would regret this later.

As she and her mom were heading back to their car, my mom was still complaining when all of a sudden she cried out.

"What’s wrong?" her mother asked.

"Something pinched me!" my mom answered.

Later on my mom checked her back (where she had been pinched) and found a red mark that you can only get when someone pinches you.From then on she never complained about going to visit her brother’sgrave.

If you hadn’t guessed, it was probably her brother who pinched her for her complaining, at least that’s what I believe. So be sure you don’t whine when your at a cemetary, if you do, the spirits may not tolerate it!

Thanks for reading!
