5 – so this happened last night…

3 Jul

I was lying in bed last night trying to write an EPIC blog post (serious business over here people), while Brian watched TV in the other room. I decided it was time to call it a night and get ready for bed (I was boring even myself with my epic blog post). I got up, walked to the bathroom, peed, washed my face, brushed my teeth, and then it happened- I knocked our toothbrush holder into the toilet.

As it was falling (in slow motion no less) into the open toilet, I remembered the many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many times Brian has explained that this would happen if I wasn’t more careful about putting the toilet seat down AND  how terribly wrong it would be if it happened…and in that moment HIS toothbrush fell straight into the toilet and MINE landed safely on the ground.


I panicked.


there was only one thing to do- wash his toothbrush as quickly as possible in the sink…

But the minute I turned on  the faucet, I felt horribly guilty imagining him washing his teeth with this toothbrush and stopped (reason washing over me) and it was then I heard him yell, “What happened, honey?!??!?” and I knew he was on to me (it reminded me of this night). He came bounding through the bedroom door and into our bathroom as I stood there red-handed with his toothbrush in hand, an open toilet, the water faucet running and a guilty look on my face.

I tried to explain.

It wasn’t working.

So I grabbed the fallen toothbrush holder to reenact the scene (and plead my case) and when I picked it up, I threw a cup full of toilet water (my face included) on myself .

Brian just stood there laughing hysterically

We both did actually.

Karma’s a bitch, my friends.

Happy Tuesday.

    this reminds me of the funny story of the mom who did her best to hide her lip balm from her 2 year old but walked into her bathroom one day to find said two year old applying it to the ‘super dry, mommy!’ butthole of their cat. she stood there wondering if that was the first time the kid had moisturized that particular body part or the 100th. awesome. just say no to trying to fix a toothbrush that has been in the toilet.

      OMG!!! This is HYSTERICAL. I’m sure it changed the way you felt about your lip balm…forever:)

    Oopsie…there are, in the end, no secrets between soulmates. Brian seems so excellent for you and vice versa. It is one more episode in a fantastic life. Thanks for sharing. :}

    Gross! Haha!! So sorry about that one. But thanks for making us all laugh. Who needs epic when you can take a bath in the toilet?

    Toooo funny… I guess we all have things in the toilet stories… I’m not sure I want to share them with strangers just yet… Mine was much worse… much more gross…
