I had a SG moment yesterday too. The drip pan under my burner caught on fire 🧯. Thank goodness I was right there and the baking soda was handy. It went up fast. In barely a minute the flames were about 6 inches high. I'm usually good about cleaning those drip pans. I guess I missed it this time.

My SG story from today:

I am at work and the only one on my floor. Other than the cleaning lady, haven't seen a soul on that floor all morning. She left about a hour earlier and I went to use the ladies restroom. Get in there and start doing my business in one of the four stalls. Then one of the toilets in the unoccupied stalls starts flushing, followed almost simultaneously by another one. :shocking: Granted, they are auto flush toilets but they are motion activated, and there isn't anyone else in there! So I finish, wash my hands, and go back to my desk. Start working again and about 15 minutes late, another toilet flush! I go and check. Yep, still no one in there nor in the men's restroom next door. :jameo:

Just very weird and a bit creepy. :eek:

Today's :doh: moment happened when I threw out my back getting dressed this morning. To add insult to injury, young rookie Officer decided to put a 15x10x6 sized box full of ammo on the top shelf of the overnight evidence locker for me to haul out to process. And I only got about 3 1/2 hours of sleep.

Things have been a little dull in my household lately. I did set the smoke alarm off twice fixing dinner, but that's about the highlight of it. Saw lots of lightning walking this morning and a couple of bats when I sat outside with tea. I don't like bats, I don't care what they say, they do attack humans and they were a little too close for comfort this morning. They're plotting against me RareBreed; I can tell by the look in their beady little eyes.

Anyhoo I expect things to pick up a little when I take Joey back to ER this morning to get the packing removed from the hole in his neck that wasn't supposed to close up. I'm hoping I can get in with him without an argument - little on the cranky side this morning - that does mix well with no you can't.

I had a bat in my bedroom once, flying over me while sleeping. Because I had ferrets that weren't confined to a cage, I used a night light in my room. I woke up and saw a shadow go over my head. I stared a little longer and it did it again. I thought maybe it was a bird. I commando crawled out of my room and downstairs to tell my Mom that I had a bird in my room. She came upstairs and flipped on the light. She screamed, "oh my god, it's a bat!" At that point, I was ready to just shut the door and let the bat have my room.

My mom told me to run downstairs and grab a frying pan and a broom. She smacked the bat to the ground with the broom with one hand while she beat the ever loving snot out of it with the pan. My mom is pretty bad ass in my opinion. :lol:

I think I'd just move. Sometimes I dump the garbage early and leave the door wide open when I go out there. I don't know why I do this especially in the summer because I see bats all the time by the light a few feet away from the door. I've had lizards inside, frogs, toads, a squirrel once (that was hilarious) and a snake that my father described as a worm when he came over and caught it.

Had a frog jump onto the wall just inside the door once. Must have been on the outside of the door and I spooked it. Came home from work once and found a bird had been in our basement all day. Must have flown in while I was letting the dog go out to go potty. I never noticed and just shut the door afterward. It was pretty easy to get him out though. Had the door open and the bird was in the room down the hall from the door. Just shooed it towards the open door and out it went. I was surprised that there wasn't any bird poop in our basement either.

I only have a few more years before I get my 30 in and can retire with a pension. Don't need boxes of ammo going missing under my watch and getting into trouble for it. Thanks for volunteering though. :lol:
