We are building the house of our dreams. We have started with the garage and once we are done there we will continue with the rest of the house. But here is a crazy story. Yesterday my husband and I went to buy ceiling board. Maybe I should explain what ceiling boards are. It a flat pieces of chalk wrapped in cardboard. In this case a flat piece if 3 meter chalk ceiling board. We had just purchased a new car in order for us to load building materials and general stuff that we might need while we are building. In any event we load the ceiling boars onto the roof of our new car. And we heading home so that we can deliver the boards. Everything seems to be going as planned. We then approach a traffic light and it is red. I say to my husband, 'slow down as the boards might just fall off the car. And as he slows down I feel the boards start to move under my fingers as I was holding them. And as they start to move I scream, 'THEY FALLING!' My husband gets such a shock that he hits the breaks and all the boards comes crashing down. Scratching the front of our new car and denting the roof causing a considrable amount of damage to the car. We then had to pick up 26 ceiling boards from the road and take it to the sidewalk. Has anything crazy like that ever happen to you? Share it wih us.

Oh my gosh, that's horrible! You probably need a truck to haul stuff like that. I would have never tried putting on the roof of a car. I hope you have better luck next time! Oh for my bizarre happening, I got a speeding ticket in the same place on two different incidents. After the second time, I swore off that road and refuse to go down that street again. The speed limit is only 35 and they will write you up if you are going 40.

The craziest thing that has ever happened to me happened about a week and a half ago when my boyfriend's ex-wife came out, and brought their son to stay for the summer. He is still here, of course, and she decided to spend the night. The next morning I was in the master bedroom watching our TV, when she came in to see what I was watching. She liked the show and climbed into bed with me! LOL So now I can say I've "been in bed with his ex-wife."
