When I was a little kid my cat caught a poor little mouse and was trotting around with the mouse in its jaws. Wanting to save the mouse I grabbed the tail that was hanging out and tried to pull the mouse out of the cats mouth. The cat wasn't happy with that at all and pulled back, starting a tug of war.. Maybe you can see where this goes?

It didn't take long before the cat was in effect victorious - the poor little mouse's tail popped right off.. The cat ran off with its mostly complete mouse and I ran around screaming like an idiot because the tail had spiraled through the air and landed somewhere in my hair. That was pretty traumatising, and having mouse goo and tail in my hair was definitely a grimey time.

Saw my friend vomit a piece of onion from his burger.  However, the onion was an unbroken, intact ring. 

It raised a few questions while also being gross.

When traveling through Turkey, I had to catch a ferry from, I believe, near-Bursa to Istanbul, which would take me across of the Sea of Marmara. I say, "I believe," because on the return leg I was feeling very ill and usually was passed out--aside from the times I had to run to the bathroom. A stomach bug + a love of spicy food is generally agreed upon to be a bad decision, but when you love spicy food, you forget such things.

While boarding the boat, I noticed dark storm clouds looming on the horizon. A stiff breeze, choppy waters, and suspiciously empty ferry clued me in that most thought it unwise to travel by boat. As we pulled out of the harbor, I could see even larger waves and a host of ships heading for safer waters. We were the only boat heading out towards open water.

The farther we got, the worse the waves became. It wasn't long before the entire ship was heaving and hawing with each wave. Up we went, then, a precipitous drop strong enough to remind one of a roller-coaster. My stomach and bowels also sent me another reminder. It was bathroom time, and I had to go immediately.

As I navigated to the bathroom, walking like the drunkest person on the planet, I contemplated with all seriousness whether the boat would sink. I had seen news prior that a ferry had sank in similar fashion while on the Adriatic. Once to the bathroom, I realized that the seas were so rough that the toilet had become a cross between a bidet and a geyser. Desiring to avoid being splashed by my own filth, I decided to spiderman my way above the toilet with one foot on the sink, another on the rail, and my back wedged up against the wall above the toilet.

From this lofty perch, I did my business and somehow avoided sullying myself. The same, however, couldn't be said for the toilet and the floor. The waves were simply too strong and no matter how quickly I tried to flush, there was spillage.

Making my way out of the bathroom, I found a long line of bleary-eyed, sea-sick Turks. I don't know whether it was the scene I left or the sheer motion in the ocean that caused it, but the first person into the bathroom behind me immediately puked, causing those behind him to cascade vomit.

While I'm not proud of what I did, it ended up being a bonding opportunity as my then ex-girlfriend (who had broken up with me a week before visiting) mended the fence. For that, I will always look upon that day as a time when my poop truly built a bridge over troubled waters.

Here goes my grimey story,

A few years ago I had face/jaw surgery to correct my bite and alleviate some jaw pain. Sounds rather trivial right? Nope. I had spent the year prior to the surgery in braces getting my teeth pushed and pulled into what would become my new bite. The last checkup before the surgery the PA gives us the talk, "this is going to be the worst thing ever, day 2 is a wall, if you make it past it you'll be past the worst, etc"

I have my surgery, make it out of recovery, and am wheeled up to my room. They had cut my upper jaw(maxilla) into 3 seperate pieces and cut my jaw (mandible) into four, all held together by plates and screws. All the trauma and cuts caused my sinuses to bleed despite blood vessels being cauterized and stapled shut. Now the fun thing about having your face rearranged is they rubber band your teeth together in the name of stability. I was unwittingly swallowing blood for several hours, I finally got nauseous and that blood came back up. Have you ever seen the Shining? You know the part where the elevators open and a deluge of blood comes crashing out? I felt like an anthropomorphic elevator that day. God bless the nurses that swooped in and changed my linens and got me a new gown.

Long story short, maxillofacial surgery is full of grime for weeks and weeks.

Thanks for the giveaway GAF!

I sneezed once and the snot remained attached to my nose and rebounded into my mouth.  Never forget

I'm new to the forum, so I'm not sure if this is the place to post, but does anyone know what gofundme GAF is referring to in their new Insta story? Also! I'm pumped GAF as returned, I thought they were retired.

The gofundme was a donation event that happened on the Inkeebriated twitch stream a couple weeks ago for an asbestos issue.
