A funny thing happened to me on the way to give my daughter a bath…..
I cleaned the tub….Normal
I checked the water temperature….Normal
I plugged the tub…Normal
I ran the water…Normal
I turned my back for a minute to check the towels..Normal
I turned back around to check how full the water was….Normal
The tub looked like Amityville Horror….Not NORMAL
At first I thought the tub was filling with blood from the faucet. I had recollection of the old horror movie Amityville Horror and so my brain saw the color RED.
Upon further investigation it was actually a weird color of orange. I emptied the tub, hoping that something must have been in the tub that changed the water that color. Of course I logically knew that was not true, because I had just cleaned the tub.
I plugged the tub and I ran the water again, hoping it was my imagination….Normal , considering the circumstances….
It ran orange again and this time I looked at the water coming out of the faucet. It was orange….Not Normal???
So, repeated this a couple of times…..I do not know why. What would you do?
Yes, what would you do?
So, I went upstairs and told my daughter that maybe I was asleep and having a weird nightmare. I asked her if I was asleep and she said , “MOM…What happened?”
I said, “Did you ever see that movie Amityville Horror?”
She got wide eyed and said, “LET ME SEE!” and quickly followed me downstairs to the seen of the crime.
I ran the water for her and she was like “WHAT the HECK?!”
So, she suggested we check the water in the sink. It seemed to running clear, which was weird. We went upstairs and decided to just wash up in our sink.
At first the water ran clean and I washed a few dishes, to get them out of the way. I figured we could wash her hair in the kitchen sink. Everything seemed to be going fine with the new plan until….
Ugh and Yuck….the water turned that freeky orange- red-brown color that looked kind of like blood, and if you did not know better…you would think you were in a weird horror movie…
It was actually a little browner this time
Yeah…so then I realized that I had just washed the dishes in it. And what is it, anyway?
I don’t know.
