|Cadbury factory in Dunedin|
I've harbored sneaking suspicions to the contrary ever since.
Today I feel bad about that because another, much more logical explanation than alcohol for the stumble has come to light.
It was ghosts.
I'm sorry to be writing about Dunedin ghosts two days in a row (see post below). But one goes where the news is. Today the Otago Daily News reported that two tourists claimed to have been pushed around by ghosts at Larnach Castle.
The man said he was standing in the music room with his wife, when "something came in between us and pushed us".
Though Larnach Castle has long been thought to be haunted, Amy and the boys reported no otherworldly experiences when they stayed there. Amy was quick to mention, however, that they stayed in the stables. I've never heard of an unhappy horse coming back to rattle its reins at people, so she probably has a point. Still, perhaps the ghosts of Cadbury - thinking they hadn't done the job properly - hitched a ride with them in their snazzy rental car.
Or it could have been the wine.
