Last night I had a really weird dream about having an endoscopy (i have never had one in real life). It was quite vivid, I could feel the scope going down my throat which was a bit unpleasant but bearable. Then the doctors left me alone and I started to gag and try to bring up the tube.

Then I woke up and I still had the feeling of having a foreign body in my throat. I drank some water but it didn't really go away. it felt like when you accidentally swallow something that you haven't chewed properly.

AIBU to think I've probably swallowed a spider in my sleep? <boak>

I had a fried spider in my fish and chips (chip shop) once. It wasn't very nice and I don't suppose the spider was impressed either.

My friend once found a hair in a curd tart from our local bakers.

We thought it was bad enough until tests were done on it and it was a pubic hair!!!

Needless to say my friend doesn't go there anymore and received a sizeable sum to keep quiet about it.

I had a glass of water near my bed and when I was drinking felt something go into my mouth, when I spat it back out it was a spider minus a couple of legs, one of those big ass ones as well.
I shuddered for about a month afterwards!

ChildofIsis I found a massive handful of pubes on an almond croissant in M&S once, when I complained the woman asked if they were mine!

I woke up to a tickling sensation on my face so scratched my cheek and squashed a big spider into my own skin............. <boak>

notso The same thing happened to me a few mornings back but with my cuppa tea. OMG I nearly hurled - only my two kids staring at me asking "what's wrong mummy" stopped me from vomiting in my sitting room....

It can happen to any of you <manic laughter>

<rocking back and forth>

Back when I was a teen, I was at a popular summer festival. I had opened a can of lager and put it down on the grass next to my tent. A few minutes later when I picked it up and drank some, a slug plopped into my mouth.

When DS was about 18mo he tottered into the kitchen with two GIANT spider legs poking out of his mouth. Still twitching.

FFS where were you lot when I talked about swallowing a spider in my sleep last year. I got flamed by someone who said it was impossible and I must have been eating toast or crisp crumbs in my sleep. Not one person stuck up for me.
Where were all you spider eaters then eh.

notso Tue 19-Jul-11 12:50:30

I was probably shuddering in a dark corner psiloveyou

<silent scream>

I'm an asthmatic and one night I woke up feeling wheezy, my inhaler had fallen onto the floor and the lid had come off. I switched the light on, grabbed my puffer and took a big PUFF. As I inhaled I felt something shoot into the back of my throat and then scrabble about. I COUGHED and a fucking EARWIG flew out of my mouth and ran off.


EARWIGS are much much worse and harder than spiders.

Earwigs are basically spiders with flickknives attached to their heads.

StealthPolarBear Tue 19-Jul-11 12:56:16

I have no more to say

Shirley - my mum once bit into a strawberry which turned out to be full of baby earwigs shock

<told that story on here before actually>

Salmotrutta Tue 19-Jul-11 13:04:50

Oh, and I once bought a pomegranate, opened it up at home - and it was full of maggots. I do believe I launched it across the kitchen.

<squirms at repressed memory>

Tidey Tue 19-Jul-11 13:05:30

Eurrrrghhhh earwigs are fuppin' horrifying.

ShirleyKnot Tue 19-Jul-11 13:06:23



That is just so bad. Salmo. So bad. sad.

If I hadn't have coughed the blighter out I might have died at the pincers of the evil earwigs. Death by Earwig. shock

Drinking a slug?!! That's horrific.

My hubby awoke one morning in a lounge after a party at someones house and noticed a 'snail trail' going across the carpet.

DH followed said trail and it lead to the open mouth of his mate that was sleeping on the sofa!

No sign of slug/snail.

Oh and I also drank a ladybird in a cup-O-Soup.
