it’s always like this

adventures in the w.c.

Filed under: maybe it's me — notsojenny @ 9:34 am

have you ever gone into a bathroom stall, carefully placed your two strips of t.p. down on the seat so as not to risk any unwanted cooties, then gathered your dress in your arms, turned around and lowered yourself onto the seat only to do it with so much enthusiasm that the second your butt hits the paper you go rocketing backwards and in that fraction of a second you freak out enough that you drop your dress that’s gathered at your chest, partially dropping it into the water, and throw your arms wildly into the air in an attempt to grab onto something but instead you just slam your hands into the t.p. dispenser and sides of the stall causing a raucous that’s loud enough for coworkers outside of the bathroom to come running in to see what’s wrong and in the same instant you realize you’ve now got one side of your butt hanging into the bowl and your feet aren’t even on the ground anymore ?

oh, me neither.

it’s just one of those weeks folks.  chaos abounds.  i got my electrical bill which is 4x what it usually is (don’t be too alarmed, i usually use almost no electricity and my bill is mostly fees).  but it still sucks and teaches me a lesson about leaving 3 ACs on over the weekend just so i don’t come back to a stuffy place. 

oh and it’s a weekend at M’s but when i come back there will be a ceiling in my bathroom so that’s exciting. 

have a great weekend everyone!  maybe i’ll get a life and have something to talk about next week.  fat chance.



~ today i learned… we’ve only had one red headed president ~



  1. Last summer, when my friend L got married, she was really determined to not cry when she was walking down the aisle. She said she didn’t want to look like she was sad to get married. So she kept trying to get me to make her laugh all morning so she could think about that in the back of her mind as she walked down the aisle. Normally I am a pretty funny person, but when forced to be funny on the spot, I am a little lacking.

    About an hour before the wedding, I went to the restroom. We had hot pink tea length dresses that were very flowy (think Marilyn Monroe white dress). I gathered up the dress, as to make sure no toilet water got on it, sat down and started going to the bathroom. Immediately I realized something didn’t feel right. And then it hit me, I forgot to pull down my underwear before I sat down so I had just peed right threw them.

    I told L the story and we laughed till we cried.

  3. Yikes! No, never done that, shockingly and thankfully. I do hope your weekend is a lot better than your week!

  4. I think this has GOT to be the last bad thing involving collapsing building structures/mishaps to happen to you for like a year. At least.

    Have a great weekend, and tell me who to call if things don’t start looking up. I’ll come beat ’em up.
