I keep getting really strong whiffs of smoke, pipe smoke to be exact. Which to be fair, isn't all that unusual except that no one else can smell it. Either I've discovered a new superpower or I'm going crazy. Unfortunately I think it's more likely to be the latter.

Am I alone in this or do other people smell random smells occasionally too?

Did you know that one of the most common phenomena associated with hauntings is the strong smell of pipe smoke or cigar smoke?

I kid you not. You're haunted buddy...

Nah, my left side is tingle free.

Seriously, it's *really* strong, I'm having sneezing fits. I'm actually beginning to think that this is all part of some elaborate practical joke.

People with brain tumours smell random things apparently.

I've smelled pipe smoke in our house too, and so has the missus. I kid you not, it always used to coincide with our baby daughter saying "Hello, there you are" to the doorway when there was nothing there.

Yeah we're not trying to worry you Mike, but you have a brain tumour, have just had a stroke and you are haunted.

Here's to a better afternoon.

Oh fucking DON'T! My niece used to stare fitfully at an old chair we've had in the family for donkey's years and say excitedly "Boy! Boy!" to the chair. She was 2 years old, and had learned to say a few things so she knew the difference between a boy and a chair.

She would just do this spontaneously. Really freaky.

Well, the nature of of the spirit usually depends on who Yvette brings with her. If it's Derek, then it's probably the angry spirit of a chimney sweep who was burned alive in the line of duty.

Should David Wells be the medium at hand you will find that your niece was mistaken and that it is in fact a little girl.

The night of our daughter's third birthday, she just wouldn't settle. I had to keep going upstairs, maybe a half-dozen times. Each time she would say "flowers". Got really annoying, until the final time I went up... and the whole room stank like a florists. Really pungent, too. As I'm tucking her back into bed, she does that look past the shoulder thing... and then smiles.

That'll shit you up. I actually woke my partner to verify the smell of the flowers, but she had a nasty cold and couldn't smell anything.

The next morning, we're telling this story to granny. Granny whips out a perfume bottle and asks if that was the smell. It was. Exactly. She then gets rather upset and tells me that this was the perfume favoured by her dead best friend.

Shortly after this revelation, the house smelt - just a little - of shit.

ahem.

Heh, I get it all the time. With a nose like mine, I'd be kind of disappointed if I didn't have a good sense of smell and I can smell a hawk on a cloudy day, etc - but sometimes there's no accounting for the things it picks up.

Strawberries, fish, cannabis smoke and my grandmother's powder are the most common inexplicable nasal attacks. I don't think my nan is visiting me, though. Surely she'd have found a way to moan about the state of my room if she was.
