Feel Me Up Friday: He got stuck in the hole and it's as funny as it sounds

My post on trusting your instincts was up for two days and I wanted to leave it up one more to give as many people as possible the chance to read my story. If you know anyone who hasn't read it, please pass it on. Together, we can save hopeful writers the trouble I found myself in, before it's too late. I had to take it down because I have something that needs to be shared. Immediately. If I don't tell you now, I'll implode. Okay, maybe that's too dramatic. I'll combust.

Apparently, whilst the hubs was off at work (he's a cable technician), and digging around in a basement crawl space, it seems as though

[Trying not to laugh]

As he's telling me this story over the phone, I imagine my sweet, fearless husband, with only his back end hanging from the small hole, dangling like bait. The house owner + wife watched in horror as the hubs flailed his feet against the wall, trying to break free.

[OMG...I can't stop laughing]

As his boots wiggled and squirmed, the hubs attempted to remove his belt so he could [hopefully] slide out a little smoother. Somewhere in his struggle, he kicked over his work ladder and had to have the house owner grab his legs and literally PULL HIM FREE.


Those of you who know my husband, he was obviously cracking jokes about his fat a$$ to relieve his humility. And I've tried not to laugh. Really, I have. But....hold on......


Okay, all better. Wait...Let me get it out of my system:
Ahaha.....anywho...moving on....hahaha.....

Random Fact: While I've never been stuck in a hole in the wall, my offspring did get stuck in a bucket once. Like daughter, like father.

Tell me, have you ever gotten stuck in anything? Tee-hee...

Candylandstilllaughing. OUT.

LOL! Your poor hubs. I'm sorry to laugh, but how can you not? It's funny.

Oh Eric.


I can't believe suckhole got stuck in a hole. What kind of cable installation requires you to crawl through walls? I hope you got slightly injured, bro, just enough for worker's comp, but not enough for anything else.

Like not being able to lift a beer to your mouth.

Great story for the kiddos' dating mates when in high school. Haha...I'm glad he's okay. Sounds like such a good sport. :) I think I missed your other post. I'll read now.

LoL, oh no your poor hubby! Now I have the image in my head of Winnie the Pooh stuck in Rabbit's house!

I've gotten stuck in kid's chairs before. Your know, the really small ones with arm rests and you stand up and it stays on your booty. Ha! That always gets a good laugh from everyone. :)

I've never gotten stuck in anything. I'm not sure I'd be able to stop laughing. There's a picture at work of a coworkers dog who got her head stuck in a hole in the wall. Whenever I need a laugh I look at "The Adventures of Stuckhead"

Lydia K said...

OMG, that's so funny! And the picture was funny!

I read your post about listening to your gut. Hugs. you did the right thing!

Robyn Lucas said...

Too funny. Did they get any video/ pics?

If so, do what any respecting wife would and upload it on You tube.

Heather said...

ROTFL! Your poor husband. *wipes away tears*

I'm telling every writer I know to read your post, and I'll be featuring it as one of the Twitter Tuesday tweets this Tuesday so hopefully that will bring more to it.

You chicks live for stuff like that, don't you?

Dianne K. Salerni said...

OMG -- thanks for the laughs! I can hardly type this! It was kind of funny when I read it, but when I saw your picture ... well, now I can't stop laughing.

Love the dignity on the floor with his belt and his wallet. I forget ... HOW was taking off his belt supposed to help??

Anne N Kenny said...

Hahaha oh em geee! I feel so bad for him, but that had to have been hilarious for that family. A story to tell the grandkids!

Never reading your blog at work again. Choking on supressed laughter.
