This made me think of other things that go boom in the night. My son has been certain the house is haunted because he has been hearing all sorts of sounds late at night. The same son who thought the lights were aliens. I stayed up late one night to find this source of booming in the night and found the strange creature that was causing it. It's amazing what a hamster can do with a squeeky wheel.
My brother lives in my old house and has told me he hears strange noises in the night. When I asked him where it came from he told me the basement. Why is it all creepy things hang out in the basement? So, I had him visit the basement to find the source. I stayed on the phone in case the goblins got him. It was a squeeky wheel in the furnace.
Now my daughter tells me her bathroom is haunted by strange sounds at night. I haven't found the source yet but I am really curious about this one. It seems her toothbrush moves all by itself. I am keeping a close eye on that toothbrush and will keep you posted when I find the culrpit.
Don't get me wrong, I believe there are strange things that go boom in the night.
