Things that go WTF? in the night

About 02:30 this morning, while dead asleep, I was awakened by some noise. The cats all leaped up at the same time that I sat bolt upright. (The cats were all curled up around me, so it wasn't one of them — which it usually is — which made me worried that perhaps someone was breaking a window or something.)

I got up and proceeded to turn on lights all through the house trying to figure out what noise had awoken me.

After five minutes of this, I finally "mentally replayed" the sound I'd heard and thought, "Gosh, that sounded like something falling in a bathtub or shower." I checked the bathtub — nothing. But in the shower, there was a conditioner bottle lying on the floor.

How does a conditioner bottle that sat, stable on the shelf, for 19 hours, suddenly fall off in the middle of the night?



(This is why I'm a little groggy today. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

Well now, come on. You know how slowly conditioner moves/settles! Like, even slower than molasses!! In fact, the cliche should really be about conditioner.

I knew you were the creator of the Learn Telekinesis Training website!

Learn Telekinesis Training? Doesn't that mean you learn how to train people to be telekinetic?

Kristin -- conditioner may settle slowly, but shampoo leaps!

Colorwheel -- imp? I would say gremlin. :-)

i'm going to be wasting a lot of shampoo tomorrow.

If you do it right, you can just use a funnel and put it back into the bottle. :-)

Okay, I think I have a shower imp. I'm sitting here reading teh Interwebs, and suddenly the shower starts making gurgling noises -- because a small puddle in it decided to start draining into the drain.

Maybe the shower tilts back and forth? It's haunted!

It's not an imp, it's a zower in your shower. (Yes, Cecilia loves Dr. Seuss these days.)
