I recently discovered the hilariously wonderful Instagram account "Peeing in Portsmouth", which highlights the number one places to go number one in our charming lil' city!

Perhaps you're not fond of toilet talk, but you must admit that going to the bathroom is the ultimate equalizer. It puts all humans on the same playing field. Even Oprah pees! Sure, she might do her business on a porcelain throne made of 24 carat gold, but she goes through the same motions.

I was so drawn to the Peeing in Portsmouth page because I always notice if a bathroom has a noteworthy feature such as a painting of a heron hanging out on the shell of a tortoise, a blue velvet couch and lounge area, or...a ghost who keeps you company while you pee! HEAR ME OUT:

Everyone knows Portsmouth is REALLY old. She was settled in 1623! So, the idea of spirits hanging around some of the the restaurants and theaters we frequent is not inconceivable. A few members on the (un)official City of Portsmouth Facebook group mentioned that the Black Trumpet, a charming bistro on Ceres Street, has a HARMLESS ghost that hangs out in the bathroom. I like the idea of munching on the best charcuterie board in town and maybe encountering a ghost all in one visit. Talk about a one-stop shop.

OF COURSE I pried for details. What's the ghost's name? Do they frequent the ladies or men's room (or both)? My questions went unanswered. I was told I need to go on the ghost tour in October to find out. Done and DONE!

Have you ever encountered a ghost in Portsmouth? If so, where?
