Thinking silly things, nothing bad.. its a fun thread people!!

For me, its the choice of two incidents.

1) Discovering my SIL had left the lid off the Vivarium her Tarantula lived in and that it had escaped somewhere in the house... it took 3hrs to find it, 3hrs i spent in the garden btw!

2) Just now i went to throw nappy in outside bin and stood, bare foot on a farkin GIANT SLUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes, i shrieked like a girl, then spent a few minutes trying not to <boak>

I havent' decided which is more traumatic yet....

that went from 'eew' to EEEEEEEWWW!!!

What is it about PE teachers being freaky?

the time I discovered that I had washed a dead mouse in a hot wash in the washing machine. Not at all a pretty sight.

oh and the time one of the cats (see above) brought in a (deceased) very small baby bird and I trod on it heavily and squishily before I realised what it was <<faints at the memory>>

empty swimming pools......if i so much as see one (there is a tv advert with one) ugh....an early childhood memory features one,but i can't work out why i'm so scared of the things!

shock @ shineon's PE teacher - male or female?

My dad once caught me shagging my 24 yr old boyfriend when I was 16; I was on top as well, lol. I think that traumatised all of us for life.

Have done the barefoot dead bird thing. <boaking and shaking foot violently>

The very much alive (but badly, er, chewed) bird trapped in the living room was 'exciting' too; you know, blood splatters up the walls, flying at your head etc

Glad new cat is a wuss frankly.

One otherwise lovely bloke I was once seeing called me mummy during sex.

<shudder>

StripeyOss OMG you have removed the obvious mental block I had put up. I had just finished reading dd a story and my new bf was in the living room. I came out of dd's room in my alluring new pj's only for him to say, 'err, there's a spider on you.' Cue me jumping around like a girl, screaming 'get it off, get it off!!!' We didn't last long...

ChippingIn Tue 12-May-09 23:32:57

StayFrosty - OMG was your Dad blush or angry??? Did the boyfriend survive??

Shine - EEEWWWW

Lockets - can understand that!! Ours was hidious!!!

Tiger - how do you know you washed a 'dead' mouse? Poor little thing had a sorry end either way didn't it!

For me - it's probably the 2 girls one cup thread and I didn't even look at the link... just the comments were enough to make me almost puke...

StripeyOss Tue 12-May-09 23:33:59

DH & I left some meat under a plate in the grill part of the oven.. cooked meat.. we remembered it was there two days later and had MAGGOTS!!!!!!!!!!

smurfgirl Tue 12-May-09 23:34:36

Scooped up a load of laundry and was carrying it to the kitchen and a MASSIVE spider ran across my body. I nearly had a heart attack.

My mate vommed on my hand/arm once, that was pretty grim too.
