17 signs you might actually be a banshee

We know you’ve been wondering.

1. Your primary modes of communication include howling, cackling, and keening.

2. Oh and shrieking. You love a bit of shrieking.

3. You’re inordinately proud of your hair, taking lots of time to brush and arrange it just so.

4. You tend to leave things after you.

5. Your wardrobe is mostly grey and black, and you can’t resist a cape.

6. You’ve been known to sit and wail at people after a few wines, eye makeup slowly inching down your face to give you that cool demented look.

7. You cry at EVERYTHING. In fact you almost enjoy having a good cry? It’s cathartic!

8. You like to keep on top of your laundry.

9. People always seem to be surprised when you doll yourself up, as your day-to-day appearance could reasonably be called ‘haglike’.

10. You’re always cold. Mysteriously so.

11. Your singing voice is best described as “the blood-curdling yowl of a helldemon”.

12. But the word ‘shrill’ fills you with an eye-popping rage. You’re not shrill! You’re just an assertive woman with a horrifically piercing screech!

13. You have something of a sixth sense. Didn’t you once predict that Sharon and Neil would shift AND THEN THEY DID?

14. You often take agin people for no particular reason.

15. But you still can’t understand why anyone would think you’re ‘scary’ (the word most often used to describe you).

16. You’re nice! People just have to make the effort to get to know you!

17. Oh, and you’re a terrifying portent of death and destruction. That too.

Identify with all of these things? Congratulations, you’re a banshee! Welcome to the club, girl.
