Three times the charm?

The other night I awoke in the middle of the night. I got up to go to the bathroom (well, I am a girl). Sleepily I walked into the bathroom which was dimly lit by a pink night light (I like the warm pink glow that it gives off).
Immediately I noticed something on the floor and stood still. I thought to myself, I wonder why Howard left his belt on the floor. Then I started thinking how it looked a little different than a belt. I flicked on the light....OMG!!!!!!!!! It was a snake! On my bathroom floor! I dashed into the bedroom screaming "baby wake up wake up wake up"....as I jumped onto the bed and curled up. Howard opened his eyes and said "what?" I started crying and saying there is a snake in the bathroom...and continued to cry HARD. Then he started laughing and said it is fake and continued to laugh. I continued to cry....I cried for five minutes. He went and got it and started to bring it into the bedroom, I made him take it in the other room. Then he said I ruined the fun by crying! Well my gosh....so sorry to ruin the fun!!!





I finally got back to sleep.


First thing in the morning, I got up to go get a shower. I went into the bathroom, turned on the water in the bathtub to warm up and got myself undressed. I brushed my teeth then went to get into the shower. I pulled the shower curtain back and stepped into the tub....only to STEP ON A SNAKE!!!! I screamed bloody murder!!!!! Howard came running into the bathroom and grabbed me and held me. I again started crying... it scared the cr*p outta me. My throat still hurts from my scream. He again started laughing. I told him that was enough, I couldn't take anymore tricks. He then laughed and said I was a big baby for crying.






After I got dressed, I went to the kitchen to make breakfast.


I am not going to be tricked anymore. I asked him where he put it this time. I said..."It is probably in the fridge", so I opened the fridge. "It is probably in the freezer", so I opened the freezer. "Hmmm...I bet you put it in with the pots and pans", so I opened the drawer with the pots and pans. The whole time he is laughing and telling me he put it in his backpack. I told him that I didn't believe him. So I looked around and could not find it. I went back to getting breakfast prepared. I opened the package of english muffins, took two out and got a ziplock storage bag to put the rest of them in. I took them to the sink so the crumbs would drop in the sink...."AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" there it was, in the sink. This time I only screamed at the top of my lungs (I don't think I cried). He came running in the kitchen and I pounded him on his chest...."NO MORE!!!!!", I said. He laughed so hard. I can only say I am glad I could be his entertainment for the weekend, but my throat hurts and I don't want to see that damn snake again.





Ugh....


Fool me once....shame on me
Fool me twice...shame on me again
Fool me three times....OK that's enough.

The damn thing looked so real. I told him if I were outside camping or something, I would be scared, but I would almost expect it. But not in the bathroom, bathtub or kitchen sink!

Have a good day!

We guys are so lucky, being able to pee in bed.

I do like the new blog colours here, very cosy and classy. Your photos have the same colour cast.

Lee Ann - Awwwwww that wasn't nice. But after you do have to admit it is a bit funny. You should plot a rebuttal. ;)

Peace & Hugs,

I have killed many snakes in my time here on this glorious earth (aka, my ranch), even a pygmy rattler. Saw one crawling out of my bathroom once, as I sat there helpless. I ran into the bedroom and woke my wife (luckily, she's gone now, like the snake), and told her about the snake ... she screamed and sat hunched up on the bed while I looked for the snake. I never found it. She was scared all the time after that, always looking over her shoulder, but no harm ever came to her. I found many of them slithering around my tack room when I would go to feed the horses; once I even found one in the feed itself. Tasty stuff, that horse food.

Next time, call me, I'll dispose of the snake, and Howard too! lmao

Peace and hugs to you Babygirl!

I think my wife would have slugged me after the first time. The third time she'd probably have shot me.

coach said...

hotboy said...

What an odd story! I bet it doesn't seem weird to Americans somehow. But here in chilly jockoland, that counts as super weird. Hmmmm. Weird! Hotboy

MyUtopia said...

DaMasta said...

When I was a kid, my brothers took a rubber tarantula and placed it in the kitchen sink where my Mom started washing dishes after dinner. We were all seated in the playroom when we heard my Mother scream. My brothers got a big kick out of this. Eventually, my Mother laughed too. I'll pass on snakes. lol!

Ouch ... Take care of your throat.
Find out what is his fear and do the same with him. Maybe he will enjoy his own fear too.

In return, you should have left a fake positive pregnancy test on the bathroom sink. That's always good for a laugh and what a payback!

If he's cruising to not have sex for the next year, he's doing a masterful job.

Tina said...

Spoke said...

Well, that sure as hell isn't displaying love is it? Ask him how it feels to be thought of as a predator instead of the protector!
Whatta childish tool!
That's how I see it!!!!!!!!!!

OB Juan said...

This is hilarious. My wife is the same type of person and I think I will have to go buy a fake snake now....
