I ate a live bug once, because I was told they were a local snack. That was probably pretty dumb, now I think back on it.
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

When I was six years old, I was down in the basement playing with the ping-pong table when I noticed water dripping down from the ceiling.  My sisters (11 & 12) were babysitting me while my parents were at work.  I ran up to the living room (1/2 level up in our split-level house) and told my sisters what was happening, but they didn't believe me.  I then went up another half flight to the kitchen and noticed suds about 6 inches deep on the kitchen floor.

Finally, one of my sisters came up and saw the mess, and they managed to get about half of it cleaned up before our mom got home from work.

Turns out they filled both of the dishwasher's soap trays full of Dawn.

Awww...I'm thinking of how awful my own 11-year-old daughter would feel if she'd done something like that...especially if she was only trying to do what she was supposed to do.

Last night as I was readying the Nom for bed, I stripped him naked before his bath. Then realized...whoops, I forgot to run the bathwater. No problem, I figured, I'll just put him in a cloth diaper for a couple of minutes and go fix the bath. I had forgotten he knows how to open the velcro ones  ::) I came back in to find the diaper on the floor, and the Nom with his arms raised in triumph, like woo hoo! freedom!

Fortunately, he had peed in the diaper before taking it off. Unfortunately, there was something more solid directly after. One minute of dumb and suddenly I'm doing laundry....

My middle daughter "drew" all over our minivan with a rock.  She got every single panel.  The insurance inspector asked "Do you have an enemy?"  I answered, "No, I have a 3 year old."  :-\

My sister once put laundry soap in the dishwasher, I guess figuring that powdered soap was powdered soap.  There were a lot of suds.  I laughed, because I'm a jerk.

If you have a mandoline slicer, always use the hand guard!

Preach on! I have a scar on the middle finger of my left hand that's a testament to that.

Annnnd this is why I won't buy a mandolin slicer....
annnnnd this is why i threw mine out. i never cut myself on it but i got so freaked out about the fact that i might someday cut myself that i set it free

Okay, I did something stupid.  Stupid stupid.  And it hurt a LOT.

I'm making chicken gumbo today, which involves, among other things, chopping up jalapenos.  I thought about what a few of you here have mentioned, rubbing your eyes and stuff, and was careful not to touch the insides of the peppers, and was doubly careful about not touching my eyes or face.  However, I did get a little jalapeno juice on my fingers, so I wiped them off (til I could properly wash my hands) on my opposite forearm.

Which was just tattooed.  Yesterday.

Cue a LOT of squealing and the Angry Pain Dance™.  I'm also pretty sure I scared the beans out of every living thing in the house.  Both dogs fled for the living room, all three cats fled to the basement.  Sorry everyone, I'm an idiot.

Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

I'm cringing and clutching my recent tattoo in horror.

Kevlar gloves. Not that I know the best place to get them but Alton Brown swears by them when using his mandolin.
