Banana man has a little cut in his neck where the polystyrene balls are slowly seeping out…
“Quick! Recovery position, pressure on his neck and no giggles..” a friend exclaimed!
Another passerby stopped to stare at it, with her kids in tow who came running up to her to see what the matter was and she put her hands up in order to stop and protect them, shouting “Don’t touch it, don’t touch it!”
The poor thing….
Bananaman has since died a happy man and gone towards the light.
“Life has sadly, knocked the stuffing out of him.“
Not long ago, I was cherishing a cuddle with baby when I suddenly felt something tickling my neck. It continued so I tried to feel what it was. Looked at my hand and there was this spider hogging my fingers. Shock horror!! 😱 Shook my hand in terror 👋🏼 and jumped up off the sofa, 🏃🏽♀️clinging onto baby for security and reassurance – she was oblivious and carefree, 💪🏼 the most courageous baby ever. Whereas, 😳 shame on me! 😩😩😩
Last night I was sleeping 😴… blissfully. I think! My hand felt a tickle… I woke up in alarm and did a karate chop in the air 👋🏼 to flick off any 8 legged crawlies that did NOT have my permission to be on or near my body….😤 Was it the very same spider haunting me or my hair? God only knows – I don’t want to know! 🤚🏼
Today… 😬😬😬😬… I had to grit my teeth every time I felt a tickle on my neck. No, nothing to attack the air with for my hair is now short enough to fool me, to tease me. 😓😓😓
Just one of the challenges of having ultra sensitive skin, heightened due to being hearing impaired.
Tip – check between your bedcovers before you go to bed and always, I mean always! turn your shoes upside down and shake before putting them on! 😜😜😜
I only started checking my footwear because I had seen on TV, a scorpion that sought warmth inside someone’s slippers. I have caught several spiders that way so it definitely works! A hearing friend once told me that they can hear whenever there is a spider inside their footwear for it goes pop… Urgh.
Last but not least, a friend of mine whose boyfriend was going to throw a spider he caught, over their balcony and she told him not to because he would kill it. To flush it down the toilet instead. There I sat, puzzled! Go figure.
Apparently, if you tend to go out shopping, it is now considered the “old fashioned way”…
Excusez moi?! We aren’t old… Yet!
Shopping online is the thing these days, ordering food and clothes even. Teenagers and young adults especially, to try on clothes within the comfort of their homes and armed with the knowledge that they can post any unwanted items back because it is within their consumers rights. But, how boring?
I am most certainly sticking to “going shopping” because I consider it to be THE precious form of retail therapy.
