Hello everyone, I am at wits end trying to deal with this problem I am having. Last October, a friend and I traveled to Mexico on a joint business/pleasure trip, where we stayed for two weeks. Quite naturally, I wanted to bring back a reminder of my vacation, and scouring through a local flea market I found the perfect thing; a sombrero! At the equivalent of $12 in pesos, I counted out my coins at which point I was given a nearly 50% discount, as the older gentleman running the booth declared that the object was in fact cursed. Naturally, I laughed and shrugged it off as superstition and I was now the proud owner of a sombrero. How wrong I was..
This is where the trouble begins. On an almost nightly basis, an entity projects himself from the mystical bounds of the sombrero and spends the early hours roaming the halls of my condo. At first I didn't mind it, as mariachis accompanied him, and the sound of the ghostly strings lulled me into sleep.
This went on for several weeks until the spirit grew irate and no longer did their sad song fill my condo with the enchanted lullaby. Instead, I found that liberal amounts of hot sauce was seemingly added to my food and drink when I supped at home. This was not exclusive to myself, as guests often thought I was playing a cruel trick on them. Irritated amusement soon transitioned to shouting, arguing, that inevitable left my social standing in tatters.
The hot sauce was just the beginning, as the sound of coyotes filled my nights, prompting angry letters from neighboring units which eventually turned into visits by the police and mounting fines.
I now fear for my life as this.. this THING continues to control my life, and now.. during the deepest, darkest portions of the night, I can hear him whispering to me.. his bristly whiskers brushing against my face as the ghostly apparition hangs over my bed, mere inches above me.. eventually disappearing in a flash of brilliant light, the words 'Gringoooooooo' echoing in his wake..
Is there some sort of spell, or ritual I can utilize to be ride of this creature? Can I break the curse? Please help me, I don't know who else to turn to..
