This is weird.
We put up some lights outside this year. We had a tree that forks to ways so we put white lights on the one fork and colored on the other. For some reason the color went out so I went to investigate. I saw that a bulb was gone. I, stupidly, put my finger in where the bulb should have been, while the cord was plugged in. ZAP!!! (No not really, just a little shock.) Today, my dad found a bulb on his dresser and plugged it in.
My dad just told me to look outside. The whole thing is blinking... and they're not even blinkers.
