Everyone must have those moments when they wish the ground would swallow them up on the spot, surely? I had one last night and im still mortified about it. Im terrified of spiders..yeah i know they cant hurt you (im in the uk no deadly ones) but i dont care..they are evil.
So im sitting in the dining room filling out some risk assessments for work in my dressing gown having not long got out the bath, when i notice movement out the corner of my eye..a large house spider working its way up the sleeve of my dressing gown....so i did what any normal person would do...pulled off the dressing gown all the while screaming like a banshee (what the hell is a banshee?..pass) and there stood in the doorway is my son with 2 of his mates ...and im naked.
So what to do? well i cant pick the dressing gown up obviously..its contaminated by a spider..so i run past them (still naked) up the stairs into bedroom to hide my mortification, my son is far from impressed which i can understand but i can hear his mates laughing..bastards!
Im meant to be taking them rugby tonight, oh god! im not sure i can face them all..especially as to my sons horror (and mine) one of the mates relayed the 'incident' on facebook, and well the amount of comments even from people i work with!..i know everyone is meant to have their '5 mins of fame' but i didnt anticipate this being mine....the idea of becoming a hermit is getting more appealing by the minute.
