An object just appeared from nowhere in my bathroom.
Something Very Strange in the Bathroom....
I do not expect you to believe me. Mainly because I think there is a rational explanation for it too, but at the moment I cannot seem to find one. See what you think and post a comment. Maybe someone will have the answer.
I don't think I have ever had anything like this before in my life - at least not that I can remember anyway. This object has just appeared out of nowhere and I have never seen it before. Of course, I don't expect you to believe me. You will probably say that it came from somewhere close by and was just a natural occurrence, but when you hear the circumstances, you will admit that it is certainly strange. I used to be a spiritualist and there were tales of things called 'apports' which are items that appear from nowhere. I was always rather sceptical when I heard these reports, and took them all with a pinch of sale, but now, maybe I have my very own 'apport' - who knows? Somehow, I doubt it!
I was the only one at home today. I was working on my computer in the passage and suddenly I heard something sounded like it dropped or fell from above. I thought the sound came from the lounge which is at the end of the passage, about 12 feet away. There is no door to the lounge and so the noise was fairly loud and I heard it quite clearly. I went to investigate in the lounge but could not immediately see anything that had fallen onto the floor. I thought maybe something had fallen down from the ceiling as there is some plaster loose around some pipes that go through the ceiling. I could see nothing at all, so I walked around the lounge looking for things that could have made the noise and eventually sat down on the sofa wondering what could have caused the noise.
I have to say that the noise spooked me a little because I was the only one in the apartment and when I walked into the lounge all the hair stood up on the back of my head. Normally I am not spooked by things like this and sudden noises do not make me jump.
Anyway, a little while later I went into the bathroom which is between the lounge and my computer desk and there, on the far side of the toilet itself, on the side away from the door and down on the floor was the object. I had never seen it before and it was completely out-of-place in the bathroom.
It was grey plastic about 2 inches in length. It was obviously something that you pressed on because there was a thumb-shaped and thumb-sized press which was like a lever. You obviously push this down on one end to do the action and the other end lifts up because there was a hole for a piece of wire or rod running through the plastic from side-to-side somewhere near the centre of its length. On the other end of the thumb-press, there was a small black rubber pad about 1cm x 1.25 cm which was curved in the shape of a semi-circle - like it was supposed to rest on a round item. It looks as if the round item would be about an inch to one and a half inches diameter from the curve of the black rubber pad.
Now, there is absolutely nothing in my bathroom that has this kind of lever. It is the kind of lever you find on a machine, and I don't have any machines in my bathroom. (Does anyone?) There is nothing nearby it could have come from, and I was at least 12 feet away and around a corner from it, when I heard it fall.
Still, I am looking for an explanation and one will probably come eventually, but you must admit, that it was a strange occurrence. Oh, and - in case you are wondering, this is completely legit. I am not making this up or pulling your leg at all.
Ahh - All is revealed!! I have found the answer to my mystery, and it is not as interesting as the mystery itself. I was taking a shower last night and I found that the device was broken that keeps the shower head where you place it on the bar that runs vertically up and down.
Normally it is something that you squeeze and move up and down according to your height, so that the shower water hits you at the right level. This about 2 inches from the wall and fairly large so I have never looked behind there - consequently I did not recognize the object as coming from my bathroom. This object that I found on the floor, obviously comes from there. I have to say that I am a little disappointed that I could not report a ghost or some other kind of unexplained happening.
So, I suggest we all wait 24 hours after some kind of strange occurrence, to see if the real logical reason will be found out. Of course, make some notes about what happened, so that you don't forget the details(just in case it is a real ghost, alien, or strange event), but don't do as I did, and "go off half-cocked" as the saying goes.
I will post a photo when I have connected my camera to the PC.
