Okay, so a friend of mine dropped by tonight to buy one more nativity-- I told her, the house is very messy and i am in the middle of studying (and i had just gotten back from fernbank- yay 10 points!!). she said, no problem-- i'm in a hurry, i'll just pop in and get it and give you a check, then i'm out of here. Okay. well, she's awesome and we always talk too much (me??), and she came inside and ended up staying for a little while. the thing is, the christmas tree smells funny. i'm serious. it's dead, dead, dead and not taking the water we put in the base, so the water has something funky going on. it's just started today, but of course i notice it like crazy when a friend comes over--- a friend who has a 13' tree in her house, which is perfect in every way. anyway, we laugh about the smell and sit down to look at something, and as we're talking, i hear something. something in the tree. friends, i did not know what it was, but i was about to fall over. i couldn't believe it. i didn't say anything, hoping it was nothing. half hoping it was just a fire and not a mouse :). all of a sudden, my friend looks at the top of the tree--- dearly beloved, it was a ROACH. OH MAN!!!! i ran to the bathroom for toilet paper to get it out, and apparently missed because a few minutes later, here it came again.
well, we just laughed and laughed, but it was so embarressing. i told her not to tell anyone, and here i am telling it myself, but it was just really funny.
i welcome all other embarressing stories...
