It wasn't like all of the spirits she'd found bound to her were huge hassles, but lately, most of them were. Case in point, Carlton Taylor.

They could cheat death and lift fully decked out monster trucks over their heads.
"Carl, are you sure there's no one who would remember where your great-grandmother, Augustine Rhodes, is buried? It sure would be a lot easier than exploring every cemetery in the county."

"I can do that. So long as there ain't no protection around the place. I can look as good as you."
