Don't try this at home, kids!
Yeah, never piss on bleach in your toilet either. They tend not to teach these kind of life skills in schools, which is a shame
Wow! I'm going to print a bunch of bright yellow "Procrastination Can Be Fatal" warning stickers and plaster them all over the house. I bet my productivity will skyrocket. I'll do that right after I climb up on this folding chair and clean the ceiling fan. Thanks for the warning.
Trying to get your life together vs. casually making lethal gas? Who among us has not been there? Glad you're safe!
That which does not kill me makes me stronger. Or bides its time and tries later. Or something. Yay for good coffee and fresh croissants.
A fine and dandy bit of humour arising out of the miasma. Cheers!
I'm a chemist, so I saw this one coming. I prefer not to have bleach in the house!
Rest assured I was entertained, enlightened, and glad crisis was averted 😅
I am glad that things didn't go worse there! But also, it really does make for a hell of a story.
Very glad you did not end up on Darwin's short list, Summer.
Love your idea for rehoming a Pning. If only!
Hugs, try to get through the rest of the day *without* making any more weaponry at home.
So glad you got out of there alive! Sometimes our procrastination is productive and necessary for percolating ideas through I find, other times it's like working out, we put it off, but then when we go to do it, we feel so good afterwards. I feel your block.
While rehoming your pning, be careful not to weld galvanised steel. Thank you for inventing a lovely new word. We can now all be aware of the effects of a pning, and take appropriate precautions.
Gotta admit that was pretty funny. I'm glad your alright
Glad you’re okay, Summer! Incidentally I learned about this chemical interaction when I was 10 or 11 from an episode of Starsky and Hutch. Lol.
What a terrifying and fun read (sorry). Definitely the whole affair can be blamed on the Pning, aka the procrastination fairy who’ll go to any length to distract and create chaos... then a croissant.
Oh my, flashbacks to my moldy 1986 NYC bathroom, where I made the same mistake.
Can still feel the fumes ... glad you had a cafe to repair to ...
Very glad you are still among us!
I suggest a reframing to citrus products -- for household cleaning and for spirit boosting. Rosehip tea! Orange segments! Marmalade!
Oh gosh thanks for this PSA! Glad you are okay! I have been procrastinating left and right on a project so I feel you...I have been cleaning, too!
