Our Friend Ben, You are not going to Believe This One

Do you see that grey blob on top of the dusty ceiling fan? Can you guess what it is? Is it a giant dust bunny? Is it a scared squirrel?
Nope, it is Teenage Monkey's dirty sock. That's right he threw his dirty, stinky sock up on the ceiling fan about twelve feet up in the air.
Somebody help me. Please help me.

  1. Do you have one of those pole thingies to change the light bulbs? Other than that, the only thing I can think of is...Get the fishing rod and start casting! That looks like my ceiling; I keep the fan going so nobody can see the dust on the blades! haha

  2. Nola, He got up on a chair and was able to reach it. Still, who throws a sock up on a ceiling fan?

  3. Trying not to laugh, because it's not funny...but it is a relief to see that I'm not the only one with teenagers that do strange & disgusting things. My grandmother always said try to let some things go or they'll drive you crazy. Easier said than done with teens. :)

  7. I had to laugh too. Sorry. My girls are grown. And all I can say is, they weren't boys and just didn't do such things. But I have a grandson who seems to spend much of the time when I visit him pummeling and shoving and beating on things. I am constantly amazed at this concept. Little girls just didn't act like that. Heaven help you, sweetie. Just grow them up and send them packing!

  8. Hi Brenda, I just keep repeating to myself "I can do this, I can do this, I can do this"

  9. OMG, I KNEW it was a sock! I knew it! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! We've had some horrific dust bunnies on our own ceiling fan (mercifully, Silence has this great lamb's wool duster thingy and can knock them off) but never a (shudder) SOCK. Your offending Monkey should be forced to clean the fan blades forevermore...

  10. LOL! I can relate. On the bright side, at least the thing that was thrown up at the ceiling was soft and didn't break the ceiling fan's shade. My son threw a football in our old family room and broke one of those fancy glass shades and they no longer made the same style when I looked for a replacement. At least in my case we didn't have to climb up there to get anything off the top of the fan though. You can bet I made him work off the debt. (I'm so UNFAIR!)

    In other words... things could be worse.

  11. ofb, I was pretty sure I would be able to horrify you with this one. Offending Monkey had to do laundry.

    Cinj, The same Monkey lost a $50 text book last spring. He had to work it off pruning shrubs for $5 an hour. He is pretty good at pruning shrubs.

  14. Now that mine are grown, I can laugh about things like that. For one year, we had four teenagers. Interesting year!

  15. Hi Dee, Glad to hear from you.

    Hi Joy, I am under the impression that I have no idea what is going to happen next.

    Hi Barbee, These boys were all born within five years. Two of them 15 months appart. Things are going to get hairy around here soon. Family planning, apparently, was not one of my strengths.

    I want to thank everyone who survived teenage boys and commented here. It is good to know it is possible to live through this:)
