Hey everyone. Been a while. I've been busy because I'm out-processing out of the Air Force so I've barely had time for anything. Last night a friend of my invited me over to watch movies and I brought The Conjuring to watch since she had never seen it. Mostly I just wanted to be entertained by her reaction, but we still had fun. It scared her half to death though and, though I laugh about it, I keep telling myself that some people aren't like me and haven't been through similar things during their lifetime, so I try to be compassionate toward them about it.
Anyway, after the movie ended, she went to turn on her small chandelier light and four out of five bulbs blew out. I didn't think much of it, but she was freaked out, because you have to admit that four out of five bulbs blowing out all at once is kind of strange. But the occurrence I am about to explain did not happen that night. It was early this morning when we both woke up and started getting ready for work.
My friend came to me freaked out saying, "The touch lamp in my room keeps turning on and off on its own!" I followed her to her room and saw for myself that the touch lamp was turning on and off randomly. I asked if it was on a timer and she said that she's had the lamp for a long time and it's never done this before. I tried finding a reason for it to be turning on and off like that, but there was no explanation. I thought maybe it was malfunctioning but it was just random. It wasn't at a smooth, timely motion. I turned it off myself and the second I did, it turned right back on, then right back off and I turned it on again and it turned right back off, then right back on. It wouldn't stop so my friend pulled the plug. It only stopped then. I laughed sarcastically and said, "It would be even more creepy if it kept doing it after pulling the plug." And she begged me to keep my mouth shut so it wouldn't get any ideas.
That's all I can talk about for now. I have had many more experiences in the last months that I've been gone, but this one is fresh in my mind because it was just this morning, only an hour ago. If you can think of an explanation as to what was happening, please tell me. My friend is freaked out so bad and I'd like to calm her down.
Shouldn't attribute paranormal to a malfunctioning electrical device.
If you had said that the touch lamp is glowing when there is no power supply, I naturally would have said "Hey! That's Paranormal"!
