Ok, so you know I have a flatmate at the moment, right? I have slowly learnt over the past few years that just because people are different to me doesn't make them odd.... or does it? I've been VERY patient over the past 6 weeks but am counting down until the 3 months flatting period is up so I can have my place back to myself again. Young male flatmate is ok but a little strange... for two reasons.

Reason number 1
Three weeks ago on a Monday morning I was up and getting ready for work. I was in my room, door open, sorting an outfit for the day when I heard my name called. It was Young Male Flatmate. Now, keep in mind that YMF had had a few drinks the night before. The conversation went something like this:
YMF: 'Danielle! The most amazing thing has happened!'
Me: 'Oh really, what's that?'
YMF: I woke up this morning and I can see better than ever! I ran outside and my eyesight is perfect. I turned on the tv and can see perfectly. It's a medical marvel!!'
Me: 'That's awesome....... Are you sure you didn't fall asleep with your contact lenses in?'
YMF: 'Oh yeah, that's probably it.'
There's me with a smile plastered on my face while inside I'm thinking 'Are you serious??!'

Reason number 2
After being away house sitting for a few days I come home and YMF is in the kitchen so I stop in for a general chat. During this YMF tells me he has worked out why he has been getting indigestion lately. The conversation went something like this:
YMF: 'So you know how I told you I was getting really bad indigestion?'
Me: Thinking umm... no. 'Yes.'
YMF: 'Well I worked out what's giving it to me.'
Me: 'That's great. What was it?'
YMF: 'Well, I bought some protein powder off the internet to help with my gym sessions and to try and bulk up and the indigestion started after taking this for a couple of days so I figured it was something to do with that.'
Me: 'Oh yes.'
YMF: 'So I read the packaging carefully to see what ingrediants were in it and realised it's actually for livestock.'
Me: Nervous giggle. Trying to keep a straight face. Screaming in my head ARE YOU SERIOUS??!

That and he hasn't found the vacuum cleaner yet. Or changed the sheets on his bed... that belong to me... ewwwwwww!


  1. Lovely photo of YMF...seriously

  2. BAHAHAHA! I both love and am slightly alarmed by reason #2 :)

  3. Mmm, mistake.
    He needs a deadline that can also be a birthday present to yourself :)
