Bees, I have NOT had a good day.
It started with an earache last night – it kept me up all night and when I woke up ths morning I felt awful. I couldn’t hear out of one ear and I was in agony! I called in sick to work and went to the Doctor, who told me I have a nasty ear infection and prescribed antibiotics, which cleaned out the last bit of cash I had left.
I sat in front of the telly all day, feeling worse and worse as time went by. By the time FI got home I was stumbling over my words and kept stuttering. The antibiotics and lack of sleep had made me a mess.
And then I decided to use the clippers on FI’s hair. I do this regularly for him and have never messed it up before, and I did it without messing up to start with! But then I went back to clean up the edges and forgot to take off the guard – and shaved a huge, bald strip in the back of FI’s head.
To say I screamed is an understatement. I burst into tears – I was so convinced FI would be mad at me. But amazingly, he wasn’t. He just picked up my laptop and started research fixes. We tried everything; even using shoe polish to cover the bald bit. We called both our parents, but the only real fix was to shave FI’s entire head, and he absolutely did not want to do that.
Luckily, he called his boss and they said he was allowed to wear a hat to work for a couple weeks. Cue the mad rush to the 24-hour supermarket to buy as many hats as we could. FI is being very good about it, even reassuring me that ‘it’s just hair’, but I’m amazed he isn’t angrier! I know I would be! I’m close to crying cos this day has been so stressful and I feel so sick and guilty I don’t know what to do!
Bees, it would definitely make me feel better if you could tell me any stories of stupid things you’ve done in the past, and if your SO forgave you for them!!
