Douglas sent in ten things which happen as you go for a drink of
water in the middle of the night....
Bang your little toe on the bed leg
your hip on the dressing table.
into the door post and crack your head.
over the sleeping dog,
up over your slippers, then over a shoe.
your elbow's funny bone on the half opened bathroom door.
on a drawing pin you lost the night before.
the glass in the sink, smashing it to bits, then cut your hand as
you're trying to pick up the bits.
your cup with water, get back in bed drink it, and find it's warm
water not cold.
trying to be as quiet as possible so not to wake hubby, you knock
off the alarm clock, which triggers the alarm, which wakes the dog,
who jumps onto the bed lands on hubby's chest, who wakes up screaming
he is having a heart attack...
Walk in on your flatmate's boyfriend also using the loo in the middle
of the night and not shutting the door!

When in California go for a glass of water, and as you leave the
bathroom you find the whole house is shaking. You are in the middle
of an earthquake, and your husband is having a panic attack because
he can't find you! (this is a true story)
Ryder from Preston added these...
Stand a bare foot on a piece of Lego.
Stand on the dog's/child's squeaky toy, waking the dog/child whom
you'd spent ages getting to sleep.
Stand on the creakiest floorboard because you can't avoid it en
route to the sink.
Slip on the staircase, seriously bruising your shin.
Walker added these...
In the dark put your hand on a giant hunstman spider sitting on
top of the tap!
the bathroom scales half way across the bathroom!
the wife's dressing gown on and pull a button off while tugging
a giant tower of childrens plastic toys into the empty bath where
they rattle around for at least ten minutes!
the tap and have the cold water shoot out suddenly and soak your
the shower screen door on the way out and have it slide shut with
a noise like a subway train crashing in the station!
returning, collide head-to-head with the wife (who has moved over
in your absence)
to the list...
silly stuff like this in Skiver's
