This is a question Horrible things I've done to a loved one

You shat on her Justin Bieber poster because you adore her. She cleaned the toilet bowl with your toothbrush for the same reason. Tell us of the times true love has not been as true as it should

I didn't do it, honestly
When The Exorcist was unbanned, it was released at various cinemas. This would've been about 1993 I think. Now, I'd seen it before it was banned in the early 80s, along with several other soon-to-be-banned films such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Driller Killer and Cannibal Holocaust.

However, Mrs SLVA hadn't seen it so we went to the pictures at a midnight showing. She didn't see what all the fuss was about, and to be honest she had a point. It wasn't even scary, except for one bit. One of the earlier scenes where the loft hatch rattles about and she goes up to investigate. That creeped her out.

A few days later, we were at home, I was downstairs playing Space Harrier 2 on the Sega when I heard a scream from upstairs.

"Eeek!, Sandettie come up here". So I ran upstairs, expecting a mahoosive spider or a rodent or something, but no. She was on the landing and pointed up to the loft-hatch on the landing ceiling. It was all askew and partly open.

"Did you do that?" she asked with a wavering voice.
"No, it wasn't me" I replied, and hand on my heart it wasn't. I did have a good idea what caused it though, it was really windy that day and I reckon when we opened the front door earlier when we came in, the pressure was enough to jar the hatch.
"Hang on, I'll go get the step ladder."
"Nooooo, don't! I don't like it. It was you wasn't it?" she said, now quite unnerved.
"No, really it wasn't. We've been out all morning and I haven't been upstairs." I got the ladder, pushed the hatch to one side and peered in. I did a good 360 view inside the loft, saw nothing and came down again. I put the hatch back and pushed the bolts across.

I was fairly sure it was the strong wind and that I most likely didn't bolt it again last time I went up there to put the Christmas decorations up there. If it had have been me, I would have played it up more by pretending I'd seen something up there, or act as if something grabbed me and was trying to pull me up, before frantically dropping down and bolting the hatch shut quickly. However she wasn't so sure. She blamed me for scaring her, probably hoping it was me pulling a practical joke.

Just recently we were watching Paranormal Activity. There was a scene where they find the loft hatch askew and slightly open. She actually gasped and looked at me. "It was you wan't it, all those years ago."

"No, really it wasn't, it was the wind" I maintained. This is probably where you expect me to admit that it was me all along. But I won't, because it wasn't me.

Yes that's the only bit I find scary in that too.
The trailers for it, however - they're something else.

We got round to watching paranormal activity the other day. That night I was in bed texting or some such, and the door did that slight open itself thing, paused, then a bit more! I'd usually blame it on the cat, but he was out down the pub or that old biddy with the fleas. Scared the life out of me!
On a simar note, my young lad did the same to the wife! Same night, before I went to bed he creeped up on her while she was reading. Cue much terror! (Little git did the same to me watching the weeping angels on Doctor Who. The statue gets closer and closer to the screen, I turn around hearing a slight noise and there he is, inches from my face. I'm going grey early!

Well done for raising him.
Sounds like he may be pretty clever too.

Isn't this a horrible thing you haven't done to a loved one?

It is really
But I doubt there'll be a QOTW that it would fit.

Are you trying to win a bet
by mentioning a megadrive game in every post?

No complaints from me, mind, the MD was pure aces.

I only finally got rid of mine
It went on eBay earlier this year. It did quite well for a 20yo console.
