White Dragon, great post.

Agreed.

I want sausage!

Same here.  I love sausage.

My husband is officially not allowed to make sausage at home until we remodel our kitchen. :-)

White Dragon, there used to be a show called The Generation Game where contestants undertook various challenges after being shown how to do them by professionals (approx. 2 minute demo) about once a series they would do sausage making.  I suspect there are multiple generations of Brits who watched that and said "Well I'm never making sausages", I did a quick search and couldn't find any videos but it was always truly disastrous.  If anyone has better Google-Fu than me they might be able to find an example for you.

This one's from DH.

If you are a guy who likes to shave using a straight razor, make sure you shut the bathroom door.  It's sweet but slightly worrying when a quiet cat slips in and rubs against your legs, causing you to almost cut yourself.  It's frankly terrifying when the 5-month-old kitten has an attack of the Kitty Crazies, comes flying through the bedroom, ricochets off the door, the toilet, and the shower and ends up hanging off of your behind with all four sets of claws AND his teeth.

Fortunately, DH was wearing pants at the time.

Even more fortunately, nobody was hurt.

Unfortunately, I did not get it on video.

When your housemate (me) tells you the dishwasher is playing up, giving error messages and flooding the kitchen floor, it doesn't mean that you should run a dishwasher cleaner through it.  If you do you end up with another flood, and a cranky housemate who has to try to disassemble said dishwasher and unblock it, clean up the flood, and ends up late to work.   ::)

When you are housetraining puppies and they are down to one little pad in their area, don't walk around barefoot or in socks only. I knew it was there, it's on the other side of the board we use to keep them in their little pen. I have still stepped right on the pad and into a puddle. More than once! You'd think I'd learn.  ::)

Or when you know exactly where the cat hork is, but can't clean it up at the moment for some reason, don't proceed to then step in that exact same spot when you can finally get up to do so... ::)

When working with poster board, be aware that it can flop around.  And the edges can flop into your face.  In particular, your eye.

Walking around last night with blurred vision in my already lazy eye was fun, let me tell you.

Do not try to make coffee without actually putting water in the coffee maker.

Doing it the other way is profoundly counterproductive and delays access to caffeine.  :o

Oh the horror!  ::) ::)

Don't forget that you pay for emergency roadside assistance as part of your car insurance.
