RDP Saturday: Luminescence

The lamp looks quite harmless. It is in our living room in the apartment. You switch it on when it begins to get too dark and switch it off when you retire to bed. Simple really, but I think this lamp is possessed.

Every evening at approximately 7.00 p.m. it begins to flicker. Not just flicker but on an off constantly for about two minutes. I know that two minutes is a short time, but when you have on and off all the time it seems quite a long time. Dark-light-dark-light and we do not know why. Of course this is only during the Winter months. Otherwise during the Summer it begins around 9.00 pm. due to daylight saving time with a two hour difference. The lamp waits for it to get dark enough to be switched on.

Is there a genie in the lamp? Is it cursed? Did something happen in our apartment at this time once to cause this reaction? As far as we know no-one has ever been mudered, or disappeared. We just watch it happen every evening. The electric bulb has never been replaced, it has never exploded. We are keeping an eye on it and waiting for the evening when it does not happen. Although perhaps that would not be so good. Perhaps it has to happen to keep the spirits happy.
