...we all went out to lunch with the in laws. When we came back to the house, I put kettle on to make tea and DH took himself off to bed. In laws left, DH still in bed. He has surfaced briefly (to take 2 nurofen - "too much champagne") and has gone back to bed again.

I have spent the afternoon a) entertaining his parents, b) taking DD2 to a party c) baking cakes with the DDs and d) putting dinner for tomorrow night in the slow cooker. He is still in bed.

Would it be unreasonable of me to pour boiling water over his bits as he sleeps?

  • ice cubes then boiling water??

AS long as you do it slowly.


VeniVidiVickiQV · 04/02/2007 21:16

Not at all.

In fact, shave his bits first. Just for good measure.

happy birthday !

yes, you should sound a klaxon at the same time, just to teach him what pain is really like

i am surprised you need to ask


TeeCee · 04/02/2007 21:17

Pour away.

However you may want to consider boiling candle wax.

I can't believe how many posts there are on MN on this topic.


MrsSchadenfreude · 04/02/2007 21:43

Candle wax sounds good. There is, I suppose, a slight possibility that he might wake up if I shave him.

I shall leave the kitchen (which is a complete tip) for him to clear up in the morning.

Yes, Moondog, you are right. We don't have everything. We just bloody do everything. I have filled the freezer with home-cooked food for the children. All he has to do it take a foil container out in the morning and heat it through at night. But he forgets, and so they seem to live on fish fingers and frozen pizzas...

Happy Birthday (from a complete stranger) I would be absolutely seething if my Dh did this. Please put it in your diary so when its Dh birthday drink too much champagne and then go to bed(honestly dont drink too much just pretend and enjoy)
