This sentence sums up the first step to enter:
Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember!


I guess I should share my messy story. 



During highschool I was working as a cashier at a toy store to make some extra cash.  The toy store was in a really nice part of the city so sometimes famous people (by famous I mean local TV news casters and such)  would stop by and buy something.  Well one day I'm just working at the register minding my own business when I see this big famous NBA player Goran Giricek standing infront of me. I used to go watch the games all the time with my dad and sister so I was a pretty big fan.  Totally caught off guard and a little star struck I was trying to talk to him and be nice, scan the items he was buying and pack them into bags at the same time. I didn't even realize that I wasn't really scanning any of the objects, just creepily staring at him not breaking eye contact while putting the toys straight into the bags. By the time I had packed it all up I realized what had happened when I saw that there was no reciept I had to shamefully pack it all out again to scan and then pack it back up, it pretty much took forever!  He was being really nice about it though but I was just dieing inside! 


As if that wasn't enough bad stuff to make the day horrible, more stuff happens.  At the end of my shift I was walking out to my car with a cup of coffee that I got on my way (I had to walk pretty far since it was around christmas time and literally all the parking spots where taken) I feel something hit my shoulder and then see something fall on my chest infront of me.  It was BIRD POOP! I just thought to myself "oh you have got to be kidding me universe! what have I done to deserve this!?" I got pooped on. TWICE! I literally felt like this:


 So naturally I was totally steaming pissed at the world.  Finally I get to my car I didn't even bother to wipe the poop off I just wanted to get home.  So while driving home some jerk decides to cut me off and I'm forced to slamm on the breaks making the coffee I had in the cup holder jump out and spill all over my lap.  At this point I was ready to get out of the car and be all like: 


I held it together though, well I might have just flipped him the bird as I drove by. Finally I get home, I come in the door all covered in bird poo and coffee and just look at my mom like:



My mom didn't even ask.  I guess a mother just knows.  She just looked at me and said "Don't worry, it'll wash out."  I spent the next couple of hours in the bath tub just thinking "yeah, that happened." 


At least I can look back and laugh at it.  It makes for a pretty hilarious story.  


I hope I win the contest, the winners are picked randomly so the story has nothing to do with it.  Wish me luck and join! :) 


Over and out,

Should I give you an Internet hug for something that happened long ago? Yeah! *hug*
My messy moment was one time I sneezed in gym class, and... well, it got messy, with snot all over my lips and hand.
That's not the real problem, anyway. The thing was that after I asked for a handkerchief, I got booed by the some other students and the teacher looked at me weirdly and asked if I really had to try and "show off" like that :o
The students I asked an handkerchief from pretended I wanted to wipe off myself on them. It lasted a few days, and sometimes after that when I seemed to not make enough efforts the teacher would remind me of the event :/ and one time a student later too, with others going all "yeah! I remind that! SO DISGUSTING!" :/ (I feel like some kind of dork, now, talking about that on a blog's comments :D)
Also, I hate birds' poop.

Wow that is one messed up day...

I have this irrationally large fear of being pooped on a bird on a trip or something, like say I had a bird poop on me when I was on my day trip to New York? I would have just died. I would be on a handy wipe mission. Was the coffee super hot? I hope not.

I love the pictures btw, the "Come at me Bro" and "That's just fucking great" made me giggle. Oh, I say "Fuck" constantly IRL but I really try hard not to curse in my blog posts - its a challenge in itself.
