And then before bed last night, I was shocked to see that it looked all jumbled and messed up. It's hard to explain, so here is a photo:
I asked Jerry why the heck he did that, and he had no clue what I was talking about. The kids were in bed, and we knew it wasn't them who did it. We were completely stumped. I don't believe in ghosts, or spirits, or any sort of paranormal activity, but seeing this happen on the mirror was freaky! I took the photo and called a few friends to ask their thoughts, but nobody had a clue. I had thought maybe it was from condensation, but that wouldn't have made the letters rotate the way they did. Besides, Jerry and I have been writing these notes to each other for 11 years, and this had never happened before!
I couldn't sleep at all last night, because I was racking my brain trying to come up with other explanations. I couldn't think of anything at all that would have caused it. This afternoon, I called Thomas, and he was thoroughly convinced it was from condensation. I could understand condensation causing streaks and smudges, but not rotating the letters! Jerry had written, "WHO ARE YOU?" on the mirror last night, only half-jokingly, in case it was a ghost--and my brother drew some symbols on the mirror to just see if they shifted over time. So I decided to prove Thomas wrong by turning the shower on as hot as it would go, and see what happened (or didn't happen) to the things Jerry and my brother wrote.
Well, Thomas got lucky, because he was right! Here is a before and after of the symbols my brother wrote:
When I turned off the shower, I actually took a time-lapse video (a feature on the iPhone 6 that I never knew would actually come in handy!). In the video, you can see the letters move. I filmed for about three minutes, but the video is only a few seconds long. Watch the letter 'A' in particular.
