My parents have lived in their Iowa home for more than 16 years. Throughout the course of their residence we’ve noticed that a disproportionate quantity of strangely negative things seem to happen in that house. Water leaks, appliances break, people fall down stairs, and on and on.

It’s become a bit of a joke in that we now blame the bad things on the fact that their home must be built on and Indian burial ground, or IBG for short.

Me: Mom, I think you guys should consider moving out of that house.

Mom: Nah, what we should consider is having it blessed by a shaman, a holy man or a… what do you call that other one…?

Me: A real estate agent.
