Laughter and books make life a little easier

The advantage of having strange things happening to you…

Status update: My feet hurt. I didn’t even know you could get blisters on your foot soles. Well, until I got them, obviously.
Eating: Nothin’.
Drinking: Nothin’!
Listening: “The Last Dragon Slayer” – DragonHeart soundtrack ~ Randy Edelman
Reading: “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” ~ James Joyce. Yes, still this one. Actually I’m reading several books at the same time at the moment – such is your fate if you wish to study literature.


… is that you then have more interesting things to blog about!


Hello, readers. Now that the threat of Traitor Bill has successfully been averted, perhaps I can again do the kinds of posts that I signed up to do.

I was planning to make this a complicated post with an intricate plot and lots of drawings, but then I decided, why not keep it simple?


This happened to me at school, when I was probably about 16 years old…


I was walking along next to the building. Over my head was the science-floor and next to me the biology-classes. The corridors were open, which meant that there were like railings on the open sides of the corridors to keep people from jumping. Okay. So, I was on the ground-floor, and there was one of these balcony-corridors just over my head:

Milk carton


Then, suddenly…

Milk carton2

A carton of milk came flying over the railings from the floor above!


Milk carton3

Splat! Yeah. It narrowly missed me, only to splat on the ground. Now, argue: isn’t that the most random thing ever to seen thrown about at school?!


I swear honest-to-goodness that this really happened. Would I lie to make up for lack of things to blog about? Well, maybe I would. But I’m not making things up now! Promise!

And I still don’t know what anyone was doing with a carton of milk on the science floor, much less throwing it over the railings.


What kind of unexpected, memorable things happened to you at school? No, your boyfriend does not count as unexpected. Winking smile


I hope I never run of these kind of anecdotes to blog about! Well, I do have quite a store, luckily. And I could always tell you about that time I fell off the hand railing…


I hope y’all have a great week, and check back next week!




PS. This made me laugh so much just now! Nerd smile

  1. Good thing you didn’t get hit! A friend of mine was walking to uni one day and these people passed by in a car and threw an egg at him. It could have been a very sticky situation but he looked around him to find that he hadn’t been hit…and not only that but the egg had landed neatly in his jacket pocket! I think fate was on his side that day!

    • Wow! Seriously?! 😀
      It feels so weird to think of eggs in terms of something that did not break when thrown! And what a surprise (and relief 😉 ) to discover it unbroken in your pocket! 😛

    I’d share my weird school moments, but you already know all of them, so the point is moot. 😀 Or something…

    Seriously, hoeveel keer was daar melk en stuff op mense af gegooi? 😛 Anyway, funny post. Probably een van die few kere wat school actually amusing was. 🙂

    • Hey! You managed to comment! *hig*

      Yep, I already know all your secrets! Mwahaha! 😉

      Ja, partydae was die melk-war nogal woes! 😉 En dis darem die een ding van skool – ons het ‘n paar goeie funny memories gekry! 😀

        I KNOW, right? *g* 😛 Cleared my cookies and browser and everything seems fine. 😀

        *looks at you suspiciously* That…doesn’t sound very good. Nope. 🙂 I need to get some new secrets, it seems.

        Soos daai ‘Hey jy met die wit hemp!’ line. Dit was crazy funny! 😉

      • Dis ‘n reminder om nie vir WordPress met cookies te probeer omkoop nie! 😛
        Heehee! 😉
        Of wat van… “Jy met die blou trui!” Of… “Jy met die hare!” Uh… 😀
