Why if anything drips on us from the ceiling of the new house, I will FREAK

Hubby was terrible thoughtful enough to share the following news item with me. Before I give you the link, I must warn you it is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard, ever. And I grew up on a working farm with livestock and have been raising a small human for the past six years, so I know all about disgusting. This, though? Takes the cake. The really, really, really disgusting cake.

Okay, now that you're duly warned, click here if you dare... and if you're REALLY brave, click on the video clip in the story that was aired on the local news affiliate. It features some amazingly awful awesome sound effects. I was giggling throughout, which is kinda hard to do with a dropped jaw. Seriously, while this was a totally horrific thing for this poor woman to have gone through, it is one of those things that you laugh at even while you're getting utterly squicked out. (Or maybe that's just Hubby and me. We laughed as we got squicked out, anyhow.)

The good news is that Hubby shared this news item with our insurance agent before sharing it with me, so he was able to reassure me via the response he got from our agent that should we find ourselves in a similar situation when we move into our new home, with similar..... liquids dripping onto us or our belongings from the ceiling, we will be covered. Whew.

I'd still freak the heck out, though. I want to take a shower just from thinking about it!! *shudder*

The curiosity is killing me. I need speakers or headphones, and I need them NOW!

Ah grat. I got headphone, then found out I could read the text, got all squicked out and then decided to watch the video because, heck, I had headphones. And oh my goodness. (squick)^3

Yuck. Even with all the warnings, and knowing that i sooooo did not want to know, i clicked anyway. I couldn't stand to read past the first paragraph, so clicked the video instead. UGH!

This morning I grabbed an apple from the fruit bowl. When I picked it up, I realised it was sitting in some brown liquid from fruit rotting beside it.

It occurred to me that while it didn't squick me out, it was much the same scenario.

OK, I have the world's strongest stomach, and that creeped me out a little.

I mean BODY FLUIDS ON YOUR HEAD? Ugh. I would make them give me a radiation-poisoning-grade decontamination shower. Ewwww.
