NATURE CALLS and B&E

I had to pee.
Will just run out and quickly take care of chickens and cats first.
Wig-less, wearing pajamas.
Ran back in – second door inside utility room had locked behind me.
No problem, have key to den door hidden outside.
Get key.
Problem – deadbolt is locked also requiring another key that is inside (along with car keys, cell phone, and bathrooms and Slim the wonder dog.)
I have to pee worse.
I am not presentable to seek help from neighbors.
Try to pry open inside door with hoe.
Nothing.
Go to Ron's shop and locate crowbar.
Kittens are following me around tripping me every step.
Work for 30 minutes trying to pry open door while Slim sleeps inside.
Finally get in knowing what a great security door that USED TO BE:(
Two text messages and two voice mails and no one wondering where I am not even Slim.
Somehow I sense Ron laughing.

Key, Hoe, Crowbar
Result of my handiwork:(

  1. New definition to the phrase, "I gotta go."
    Ron would have asked about why the immediate problem wasn't taken care of first behind the chicken house and then get into the house.

  2. Cliff -- I knew somebody would mention that...should have known it would be you. Yes, I considered it but only as a last resort.

  3. Sometimes, when ya gotta, ya gotta, and ain't nothing gonna stop ya from completing that task.

    Yup, Ron would be laughing indeed. :D

  7. Nice job! I know somebody whose main requirement for a new house was that it had to have a private enough back yard so that she could pee in it. But she'd STILL hafta get into the house somehow, right?

  8. You're the second person who posted today about getting locked out of the house. Gotta make sure my "spare" key is where it should be. (You must have amazing bladder control!)

  9. Poor door, but the bottom line is that you got the job done and you should be proud of that....and that you sensed that Ron was getting a little laugh from your dilemma.

  10. So sorry for your predicament! But it did make me laugh. And it could have been worse. One of my friends locked herself out of her son's house in Mexico. He was at work, she was in her housecoat, didn't have her phone and doesn't speak the language!

  11. Oh dear! My biggest fear is getting locked outside! I never even go to the mailbox unless I have my plastic coil bracelet key chain on my arm But look at you, you got in!

  12. Annie, I'm with Cliff...behind the chicken house would've been a great option. It's good to know you work well under pressure. Great job, my friend. :)

  13. Oh, dear! What a picture you have painted here. It made me laugh, but also shiver--hoping it doesn't happen to me.

  14. Oh my goodness! You have me chuckling.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am so sorry, but I am sitting here cracking up, because 1. I think Ron was chuckling, and 2. that would totally happen to me!

  16. My husband had been in your situation several times so finally I made him a key for his wallet and taped in one of the card compartments.
    Also men are lucky, in their own way.

  17. I find your post most hilarious.These funny but uncomfortable situations sometimes happen.

  18. Oh my! I might have been tempted to pee outside, but I applaud your efforts in getting back in! Yes - I think Ron was grinning at you.

  19. Is it just plain mean to giggle at someone's misadventure? I love your ingenuity, Ann. Sorry about the damage to your door.

  20. If I need something done in an emergency, I'm going to call you.

  21. Now that's a dilly of a pickle. Isn't it good to know that you're strong enough to break down a door when the pressure's on? It was only a few months ago that you weren't even allowed to lift a laundry basket. Now you're breaking and entering! Awesome!

  22. Don't you live on a farm? I totally would have fertilized that farm land with my pee! LOL (I know pee doesn't fertilize but it sure sounded good! )

  23. I have a hidden house key taped under the house siding where no one else would ever find it- has helped me several times!

  24. You must have great bladder control.
    There is something delightful about peeing in the fresh air - I'm afraid I would l have done that. Love fresh air smells.

  25. I am like Pavlov's dog that way. I take out my keys and I have to pee. NOW!
