What is the weirdest thing that ever happened to you?
This video from former British gas apprentice Sarah really made me laugh (and squirm a bit too) She is telling the story of the weirdest thing she ever saw whilst out on a visit, take look it is very odd!
I think I would have fled …all those eyes looking at me!
Sarah however was a farmers daughter before she became a technical engineer with British gas so is far hardier than me (and more used to lots of animals!) You can read about her story and her apprenticeship here
It made me think about the weirdest thing that I have ever seen in a house and I have to say I was a social worker for a long time..I saw quite a lot of odd things but none of which I can talk about!
In my own home however the oddest thing happened when i was pregnant with my first child. My lovely cat Zeke, who had never shown any interest in hunting, suddenly started chasing after birds and mice and on odd occasions was bringing them in for me (ick.)
One day Zeke must have found a frog and very gently bought it indoors. As I climbed the stairs both my cat and this little frog sat totally still across the top step just staring at me. I absolutely screamed the house down. Frogs completely terrify me and this one was just STARING. I had to get upstairs as I needed to wee (pregnancy hazard) and I was alone in the house. Neither cat nor frog even flinched as I neared them and I had to climb over them. I was absolutely petrified.
Both had disappeared when I eventually and nervously came out of the bathroom, but the staring froggy face is imprinted in my memory forever.
