A couple of days ago a fellow slicer wrote about a noise in the house. I, along with several other readers, thought it was going to be the smoke alarm sending out a warning beep that the battery was low. It wasn’t, but it seems like an odd coincidence that last night as I headed into the bedroom, something caught my eye, and I glanced up to see the smoke alarm dangling by its wires from the ceiling. Now how did that happen? The ceiling is steep in that room. When I change the battery in the smoke alarm, I have to drag a dining room chair in there to stand on. I still can barely reach it. So really, how did that happen. It’s a mystery to me!
Nobody was home all day except the cats. One of them is quite a jumper, but I can’t imagine any way he could have jumped up there, even if he got on the chest first. The distance is too far. It would be a long free fall back down to the floor. And how hard would he have to bat at the smoke alarm to make the cover come off? Could it really have been the cat? Or did it just get loose over time?
Have any mysteries happened in your house like this? Crazy, weird things with no apparent explanation?
