"From Oct 1995-Aug 1996 I shared a semi-detached Edwardian house with 3 other guys on Macdonell Avenue, Parkdale, which looks down Seaforth Avenue. Often on Saturday mornings we would hear children playing on the stairs that went from the kitchen to the second floor, like laughing or a ball bouncing. We thought nothing of this because the house was a mirror image of the semi-detached next door, and the residents there had 2 children under 9. However, that family moved out in January and in February we still heard the noises on Saturday mornings, even though the house next door was empty. We were all four of us single guys in our mid-20s living in Toronto for the first time, and on Friday and Saturday nights we would often go out together. There were two bathrooms on the second floor, side by side, and we would get ready in here and listen to music loudly played from the front 2nd floor (master) bedroom. On more than one occasion, however, if a couple of us were in the bathroom or middle bedroom, the CD player in the front bedroom would spontaneously start up on its own, with no one in that room."
