Stupid House Tricks

Our house is 80 years old. It's had many owners. Each one has probably done one (or more) slightly odd thing to the place. This makes for a lot of slightly odd things. So far, the funniest one is the plug in the bathroom.

We kept trying to figure out what was wrong with it. You plug things in, and nothing happens. Other times, you notice it is working. We couldn't figure out the correllation until we're both standing there saying, "It works sometimes, but not others, and there doesn't seem to be a pattern." At that moment, the obvious pattern of being attached to a switch occurred to us. Rick turned on the bathroom light, and both toothbrushes dutifully lit up. He turned it off. They turned off. Um, yeah. Not sure why, but the bathroom light has to be on for the plug work. Yeah. Okay. Rick started getting all mad. I just laughed really hard. I nearly spit toothpaste everywhere.

Maybe we'll call the place Kooky Kottage. Or something.
