New Orleans voodoo.

My cousin and her husband are spending Mother’s Day in New Orleans. They’re both doctors and they had a seminar or something in town so they decided to stay the weekend. Their hotel? A haunted one. But, that’s not what I’m here to talk about (not really).

 Here’s the link to the hotel’s history.

See, my cousin has expensive and unique tastes so she decided to do some shopping in New Orleans. She went to a doll shop. A hand-made doll shop, filled with traditional voodoo dolls and the like.

Out of hundreds of dolls, one in the back caught her eye. She immediately took her into her arms and set her on the check out counter and told the lady she wanted that one but that she was going to look around, in case she liked another one more.

Moments later, the doll fell forward from the counter onto the floor. My cousin thought nothing of it but the lady running the store told her she needed to stop looking because that doll wanted to go home with her. Still, my cousin paid for the doll and left the store to go back to the hotel.

Her and her husband were going out to eat so she sat the doll down on a chair and left. Upon her return, she found the doll sitting in a different position. A little freaked out, she went down stairs to the concierge desk and told them what happened, they said it was probably housekeeping but if it wasn’t, they reminded her that the hotel was haunted.

My cousin returned to the room.

The next day, before leaving, she set the doll down on the couch and placed a telephone book on her and cushions around her so she wouldn’t fall. She also left the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door so housekeeping didn’t come in and move her.
Hours later, she returned to the room and upon opening the door, she stood there, crying and refused to enter the room. Why? The doll was no longer on the couch. The doll was almost TEN feet away from the couch, on the floor. She went back downstairs to the front desk and told them that she had the Do Not Disturb sign up and that no one had permission to go into the room. The concierge told her that she shouldn’t worry, that the hotel is known for their child ghosts and that they are most likely just playing with the doll.

As if that wasn’t freaky enough, my cousin has taken numerous pictures of the dolls to send me and her brother to show us the doll but none of the pictures send, from any phone or to any phone.
