View Full Version : A lightbulb exploded on my head today.

I was in my bathroom getting ready to go out earlier. Tarting myself up. Hair, makeup, you name it. So I put the light on, as it was raining so much outside the sunlight had simply disappeared and the whole room was dull.

With a fizz and a bang and the sound of glass shattering everywhere, it happened. The light bulb popped out of its socket and broken, burned glass went everywhere.

Luckily my pretty little face wasn't cut but I was in my bare feet and couldn't get out of the room to fetch a dustpan and brush without stepping on some damn shards. :( Poor me.

Finally a lightbulb went off for her...

Aren't they supposed to light up above your head, not explode?

Aren't they supposed to light up above your head, not explode?

Not if it's a really great idea.

My idea was, "I'm going to wear my hair up today, and put on some makeup before I leave for work."

Not exactly earth-shattering, but it worked for the light bulb...

Well, did you write it down?

The light bulbs usually explode if you don't write it down right away.

12-07-2007, 05:59 AM
No, I didn't write it down. I was too busy putting my hair up and slapping on the war-paint.

Next time that happens and you're putting on makeup, at least scribble something onto the mirror with lipstick.

Dear God, what are they teaching you kids in school these days?

You stepped on shards? Thank Dog for universal health care.

Why does your avatar get scarier and scarier each time you change it?

Because he's eating ground-up light bulb shards.

It's Christmas time. Get with the spirit.

Well it seems pretty obvious to me that the light bulb came to the realization that its light could not compare to the light of your beauty and committed suicide. May it rest in peace(s).

Damn, that was some smooth talking.

Damn, that was some smooth backpedaling.

Was this the lightbulb you stuck the potato into before?

Perhaps it's just getting even.

How would you like it if someone stuck a potato into your socket and rotated it?

was it doing this in its last moments? tell the truth, you were doing more that putting your hair up...

Did you check your bathroom window for a bullet hole?

That's double hard. English light bulbs just quietly die. Scottish bulbs explode.

I think there must be something going around. My bathroom bulb exploded last week.
