Yes i know this is going to have a few people laughing, but this has been bugging me for few years now and i thought this was the best place to post
Mainly because the term "paranormal" is often used to denote unusual experiences that lack an obvious scientific explanation. There are a lot of
scientific brains here on ATS so thats why i'm asking if this is normal or not.
Ok, long story short, a few years back, i'm having a bath in my old house. Being a 35 year old child i like a few suds in the bath.
Now and again bubbles would float above the water if i moved, and burst on the surface after a few seconds in the air (I did'nt have wind by the
Then this bubble, about 1cm across in size, floated up and around the bathroom, nothing abnormal about that i know. However it then floated out of the
bathroom door and along the upstairs landing. It turned and floated into my eldest daughters bedroom and then back out of the door.
At about head height for the entire time, the bubble then floated back into the bathroom. Then it went back out and into my youngest daughters room
and out again until it hung in the air at the top of the stairs.
By this time i had gone from thinking that it was pretty cool, to thinking it was a bit weird in a freaky way. The bubble hovered around the landing
for approximately a couple of minutes before making it's way back along the landing, back in and out of the girls rooms and into the bathroom where i
was still in the bath. I was leaning over the side watching this thing on it's journey.
Each time it entered the kids rooms, and it did this couple of times in each, i was shocked to see it emerge again out of the door. I thought it
would burst and disapear in the room.
Finally it settled down on the side of the bath where i was and burst.
Now i know some will be sitting there thinking "what a fruitcake" lol, but it was something i'd not seen before. The whole incident, from me seeing
the bubble rise from the bath to when it burst, took about 10 minutes in all.
I did'nt have any cameras to video it or snap it, but even if i had have done i think i would'nt have bothered as i honestly thought the thing was
going to burst any second like any normal bubble.
The main thing that freaked me was that it did'nt float around randomly, it acted as though it was "looking around" the upstairs floor of my house.
At no point on it's journey did it hit any walls or door frames, just passed by them as you or i would.
The only other strange goings on prior to that, were both in my daughters bedrooms when they were tiny. My eldest told me on a couple of occasions
that she had seen the nice lady smiling at her on her ceiling when she was about 3 years old. The lady she described was the image of my dead nan.
The other was my youngest when she was about the same age, sitting up in bed pointing at all the lights that were floating around her room, and going
in and out of her cupboard. I could not see them myself, but you could see her head and eyes following them and she was pointing at them.
So there it is. Got it off my chest anyway and i guessed this was as good a place as any to do it.
What i wanted to know really, was scientificaly, is it possible for a bubble made from just ordinary bubble bath to last this long? Would'nt the air
around it affect it after a short while and burst it?
We did'nt have a draughty house, so i can't see it having too many air currents to ride about on either.
Just a bit curious thats all.
