*Snort* That's classic. Did he say it sarcastically or just pointed it out kindly?
my kid sarcastic, are you kidding?
he was trying to prove his innocence by pointing it out. he didn't do it sarcastically because he'd get punish for his attitude even if he wouldn't get punished for the chocolate. it would have been a win and the lose situation for him.

I don't know that I can top that, but I did swallow a pill dry once because I was too lazy to leave my desk and get water. My chest started hurting, and I thought maybe it was stuck somewhere, so I drank hot tea trying to "melt" it. It turns out that one of the side effects was burning/ulcers of the esophagus! It had to be taken with water. It was days before the pain in my chest went away.

I stuck a peanut up my nose. But I was 5 so I think you've got me beat.

I once put canker sore medication in my eye! It burned and then it made my eye very numb! In my defense, it was in a bottle identical to my allergy eye drops and I had my contacts out.

I also found a missing contact in my ear. I still can't figure that one out - and there was no alcohol or prescription drugs involved.

I gave myself two concussions last year in short succession from standing up too quickly and hitting my head on things.

I pinched my finger two times with the lid of a vitamin bottle - once when I closed it and then again when I reopened to release my finger and closed it again.

Lauraloo! I remember the nerd up the nose! HA! I feel better now (except for a certain part of me which still thinks it makes perfect sense to stick a zinc capsule up my snoz) (I'm not on ambien)

I was once wearing a belt that was too large, so I was trying to add another hole to it with an ice pick and stabbed myself in the stomach.

I had a mix of valium and ibuprofren in a baggie. The valium was for my daughter who had had her wisdom teeth taken out. I had dumped her medication into the baggie with my medication so we could take the container in with our water to have it tested for hardness. I had forgotten all about her medication being mixed with mine & one morning I woke up with a headache. I thought I was taking ibuprofren, but I took valium instead. The dosage on valium was 1/2 tablet & I took 2 of them. I felt wonderful for about 30 minutes, then started getting dizzy & puked my toenails up for the rest of the day. Unfortunately, I was at work when the pills took affect.

Once I accidentally used nail polish remover on my face instead of toner. They were the same color and I wasn't paying attention. I don't recommend it.

I went to work one morning (on the bus) with a shower cap sticking out of my collar. Got distracted when I was dressing and forgot to take the darn thing off so when I put my shirt on over my head it ended up in my collar. Didn't even know it until a co-worker pointed it out. Well, at least I didn't go to work with it still on my head!

Don't have Zicam at work.

But I do have zinc capsules! So I take one.

Still feel sick.

Genius idea: why not stick a zinc capsule up my nose and let it dissolve there? Same as zicam nose gel, yuh-huh!

Only not so much, because the capsule immediately shot up into my sinuses and was well on its way to my brain. Desperate dash to the (unfortunately PUBLIC) restroom. Frantic attempts to do a sinus rinse without a neti cup. Consternation spreads among all ladies present, which turns into disgust when I start snorting and hacking up water and snot.

Finally half of the capsule came out and now I REALLY feel sick and my ear hurts too.
I was feeling bad about sticking my foot in my mouth.

I hope your nose, sinuses, and brain recovered and your cold gets better soon!

The women on this board really crack me up!

You had my laughing so hard that I was crying. I'm still sniffling and bursting into random fits of laughter while seeing this mental image.

ETA: I commented on political threads! Why did I do that?! I swore that I would stay out of it! Stupid, stupid...

I debated whether or not to post that earlier! I'm passionate about the things I think we should be doing to help our country, and others. And so I end up posting in politics threads when I think... geesh... maybe I shouldn't do that...

Nah keep doing it I appreciate your posts.

Besides the political threads are too addicting. Like bad TV. I try not to let them get me too upset but I just can't help reading them.

As for my stupid thing. I once had 2 contacts in one eye and one in the other. Yep I had in 3 contacts. I have NO idea how I accomplished this and I went thorugh most of the day before I discovered it.

My nurse supervisor at work tried Ambien because he had insomnia. He ended up driving to walmart in the middle of the night and spending 500 dollars on odd stuff, like two massive jars of pickles, 4 copies of the same CD, a jumbo box of mousetraps and 4 fishing rods. (he doesn't fish) He then went home put everything on the kitchen table and when his wife asked him about all the junk in the morning he didn't remember a thing, not even leaving the house and driving his car!!!!


I think the stupidest thing i have ever done was driving the wrong way down a road in the middle of town. There was a small town i had driven to so i could go shopping. The road was a two-way road all the way into town and then split into two roads (both are one way streets) with townhouses and businesses between them so you have to actually drive through an alley if you wanted to turn around and go the other way. The roads then came together in a two way again after going through town. Well, when i pulled out of the shop i forgot all about the road split and starting driving back home on the road i came in on. I saw a couple of people waving at me so i waved back and kept driving. I thought people were being friendly and waving to me...but they were actually just trying to get my attention so i didn't cause an accident. Thank goodness there was no heavy traffic. I eventually figured it out and got my stupid butt on the right road going out of town. The hubby thinks i need medicine for ADD.

Ate unhealthy food a few meals in a row. I took zantac like a good girl, which often prevents a problem... But not this time. My stomach issues are great. I'll be awake and in lots of pain with my stomach making loud noises for about two hours now. I'd rather if I had one major stomach symptom, but no- I just get massive pain which make me wonder if my insides will let me sit up straight ever again....

On a positive note, I generally have a pretty low fat, low grease diet, with a healthy balance of veggies, proteins and carbs, and have great incentive to keep it that way!

Eta for anyone who moght be alarmed: don't worry, my doctor and I are very well acquainted. I don't have a bleeding ulcer or tumor or something killing me quickler then I'm meant to go just a history of stomach problems/healed ulcer which leaves me sensitive to unhappy tummy problems if I'm dumb.

Regular Ambien does that for me. It's only meant to get you to sleep, so it wears off after about 4 hours. I now have to take Ambien CR to get my full 8 hours. Though I think I'm bagging the Ambien all together. Randomly going and spending money is not in my budget. Nor is eating a whole bag of chips, a whole container of cookies, or a whole sleeve of Ritz crackers in my weight-loss plan.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

You can I should hang out at night. I'm an insomniac and can keep an eye on you to make sure you don't get the cookies or spend the rent money.
