It was after 8 p.m., and I was watching the pre-recorded episode. Now that it is full-blown Autumn, the sun sets at 5:30 p.m. That means it is nice and dark outside. The darkness outside only added to the fright! My comfortable chair sits next to the fireplace. On the mantle above the fireplace sit 3 electric candles, each of different heights. They are there more for décor than anything else. However, they do work, and that is where this story really begins!
The candle closest to me lit up! All by itself, as if someone had taken the tiny remote and clicked ‘on’. I quickly looked up. Awestruck! Mesmerized! Frightened! And to be honest, a little taken aback! I am not a big fan of things that go pump in the night. So, the very fact that this candle turned on by itself made me a little uneasy.
My response to this incident was immediate. I stood up, found the remote, pointed it at the candle, and turned it off.
The candle to the left turned on ten seconds later!
Please, someone tell me that did not just happen. So, I did the same. I moved over to the second candle, pointed the clicker at the base, and turned the candle off. Ten seconds later, the third candle – the one furthest to the left – turned on.
