Funny/stupid things we do when flaring

Sep 09, 2015 9:12 AM

Just creating this thread for a laugh as some of the stuff I did literally was so stupid and funny and also somewhat very embarrassing. I hope others can share some funny stuff here too.

1. I finished doing my poop. Was flaring so bad I couldn't twist to properly wipe my ass 😂😂. Instead, I stripped off and jumped into the shower having so much more trouble putting on clothes lol.

2. Literally sit on my back whole day even when visitors come visit. They are like wtf...I couldn't care less as that was the only comfortable position I can find lol. I couldn't be bothered explaining myself to them.

LOL, Octobot!!! I would have the same problem twisting around in the shower washing. Then I would end up falling. I listen to music in the shower.. Don't do it!! See, listening to music makes you sing, singing makes you dance, dancing makes you fall and then falling leads to the whole fire department seeing you naked!! Don't listen to music in the shower! (I say this from experience! Without the FD thank God!!)😁

👆🏻😱😱😱😱😂😂😂😂😂😂 omg that's so funny. Just imagine you really couldn't get up at all, even if it was family not the FD, I would never be able to show my face lol.

Okay, so I've got one and only one so far.

Was attempting to clean the bathtub on Monday evening. Flaring a little bit but was controlled. Attempted to stand up and got stuck in that position. Had to literally sit down on my butt and wiggle out of the bathroom, scooting backwards on my ass. Shall not be doing that again ever!

Well... I bent my own rules, took the phone Jim the shower and was listening to music. Started to him, was swaying side to side a bit and Then started belting out these songs full force, started to dance and really rock it out. I got a bit overzealous, slipped and fell OUT of the tub (Taking the shower curtain all straight off$. It sounded like a sonic boom came!! My Mom was like screaming WHAT THE HRLL IS GOING ON IN THERE?!? So, I lied...LOL!!! I said I slipped sad knocked over all the shampoo bottles and body wash. I jumped up,'fixed the curtain, put back what I knocked over and got back in to finish my shower!! I can only imagine how funny it looked to see this hippo come flying through the curtain and land on the floor!! Right now, I'm alright right now. Will prob be sore as hell later!!

Don't know about anyone else, but my brain plays tricks on me!!!! Was helping my 10yr old in the shower and told him, not to forget to wash his shoes while in there. Needless to say he looked at me strangely then laughed his head off saying Mum why would I wash my shoes in the shower? ?? I'm supposed to was my hair and body. Apparently I looked him quite stupidly then laughed as I realized what I'd said.

Ouch, i'm with you on the trouble speaking!!
Just yesterday i told my husband we have to delete(throw away) the chicken.
When i put my car in reverse i always say rewind in my head, and one time a coworker asked me the date and I said quarter after September (Sept 15th) LOL
It makes other people smile, so it could be worse I guess :)

Yes I'm with you on all counts there. I am constantly getting words and phrases muddled not to mention getting names mixed up!! My other half says it's all ok just as long as I remember his name and what he looks like we're good!!

My hubby fused because I'm always saying the opposite direction of where I'm pointing. I really do get the directions flipped around!

Sep 09, 2015 10:25 PM
