Ooh... exciting!


Perhaps the most exciting thing... ever... happened to me yesterday. Seriously. It is one of those first time ever.. never again type of things. I was drinking water fron the tap in the bathroom sink, as I sometimes do for the simple fact that the water is much colder and clearer (less aeration) than in the kitchen... After a few gulps, I choked and sputtered and the water I had swallowed came back up (yes, regurgitated water...nice.). Then the exciting part... as the water was exiting my mouth, it simultaneously spurted out my nose....  Never before had this happened to me. Now... normally I wouldn't share such a thing except perhaps with my nephew, who is about the only one who would appreciate such an event, but I couldn't contain the excitement. Today as I was reminiscing about it, I realized that technically, it is possible that I could have actually drowned drinking water from a tap. Exciting...  Yeah... I know... I need to get out more.

Hmm.... Now that I have thought about it a little bit more... perhaps it wasn't quite the adrenaline rush as having my hair on fire a couple years ago.  First time ever... never again...  exciting indeed.

were you really drinking from the tap? Leaning over the sink, lips around the faucet, fingers on the handle? Or did you use a cup???

Who the heck would use a cup to drink water in a bathroom when the tap is right there? So... no... I did not use a cup. Barbarian that I am.

You and your crazy, adrenaline-fueled lifestyle.

You'll probably be parachuting off tall buildings by the end of the month :-)

Heheheh. I would be more inclined to jump out of a helicopter with flippers on, into the ocean.
