Dearest PM -

How about headless mice, squirrels etc. in your bed from said cat present leaving?
Or realizing dog just kissed your face and he's got kitty litter crispies on his beard.

River said...

I was going to answer each and every question, but there's too many, so here goes...
What could be worse than all those things?
Having them all happen in the one day.

Hi Lady from Delaware,

Yup - that's pretty bad - pretty bad!

Hi River,

Indeed! To be fair, one or two of them did happen in the same day (to certain people who shall remain nameless).

Cheers

Oh PlasMan, I feel for you, I really do, but it didn't stop me heaving with laughter reading about your sufferings!

Mine:

* Sleeping peacefully and deeply. So well that I was lying near the edge of the bed, hand drooping over the side and mouth open... only to be woken by the dog who had just slurped me right across your gob and, judging from the feel and smell, had only moments earlier been giving her own arse some careful attention.

* Having an attack of diarrhoea as a ten year old during a family camping holiday. Dad was intent on driving home with as few stops as possible and I eventually, well, 'erupted' is a good way of putting it. The orange fountain exploded over the back of my jeans onto the car seat and snuck over to my horrified younger brother. Some was splattered on the stereo speaker in the door (this was in 1978 and they were the latest thing) and..... the piece de resistance......a tiny mustard-like blob had settled on the back of my father's neck.

Naturally, we *did* stop, mercifully near a flowing creek and somehow Mum managed to sloosh out the worst of it and bury most of my clothes so that I made the rest of the trip back home entirely nude and wrapped in the picnic blanket. But I never told them about the spot on Dad's neck. He didn't want to stop, he got left with the spot!

G'Day Kath.

Trust you to write a comment that makes me almost choke with laughter.

:0)

That diarrhoea story is fabulous.

I have to say that around half of the things in the post happened to me (I'm not saying which).

I'd think having coke thrown over you would be slightly worse than throwing coke over someone (regardless of the feeble wasp excuse), but what would I know.

The Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Mark,

You could be right.

It's almost as bad as actually thanking the guy who threw Coke all over you, I guess.

I mean - come on! Who would do something like that?
