Since my last post was pretty depressing and the A to Z Challenge is over, I figured that I'd start doing Funny Story Monday posts again. We all need to laugh right?
When I was in high school, I studied all the time. I worked on homework for hours and hours every evening. On one particular evening I was sitting at the kitchen table doing my homework with headphones on. Listening to music helps me get into the zone and I can tune out most distractions.
I was working hard, listening to music and heard a weird knocking sound. It was coming from behind me - the wall that bordered the garage. I couldn't really tell what the sound was because of the headphones. So, I took them off and heard, not only pounding, but screaming. It was my mom.
I ran into the garage to find my mom sitting on the washing machine with her butt stuck inside. She was actually stuck and she was kicking her legs against the front of the washer. I can't remember if I started laughing or was so embarrassed that I was in shock. If it were me now, I'd totally be laughing.
Why was she sitting in the washing machine? Because our neighbor's pet ferret ran into the garage and scared the living shit out of her. She is terrified of small critters. It wasn't until somewhat recently that she got over her fear of cats. A ferret running under her feet in the garage - she just couldn't take it. I guess that she was trying to get to high ground. She just didn't consider the outcome of jumping on the washer without closing the lid first.
