    Why don’t exciting things like that happen to me. Instead, my kids just shove beads up their nose and eat leaded balls. Totally jealous.

      I swallowed a barbie tennis ball once.

      Wellll… we could go for a drive and try to find some cagey pigs?

  • Ilse

    Great story,

    I wish I had your way with words. Your story will be what my kids write about me lol

    • Shannon

      Haha! You’re a crazy animal person too, Ilse?

      I really can’t blame my mom. It’s just in her blood. :)

    oh. my. …………..

    I can’t even. I was crying with you, but my tears were from laughing my ass off reading this story. Such great visuals and guiding us through the tale, Shannon. Damn, that was a great post!

      It’s crazy, right? I laugh thinking about it, too. It was fun to write.

    Holy Cow (I mean pig) Shannon! This is by far the most ridiculous true story I’ve ever heard before. You are awesome and hilarious. Can’t wait to meet you on the 19th:)

    Funny story! Well, I’m sure it wasn’t at the time, but…

    • Shannon

      Ha! Not in that exact moment, but it was pretty funny shortly after. It’s crazy!

    This is one of the best stories ever written. Loved every word of it.

    • Shannon

      Baha! Thanks, Michelle! I’m glad it’s my story. It is a pretty gooder.

    You, Lady, are freaking hilarious. Thank you for that :)

    Ahhh, that made me laugh out loud :)

    • Shannon

      Hee. Thanks for reading! :)

    OMG, this was hilarious! Great read! Reminds me of the time I was like 8 months pregnant and a mouse got snapped in a trap in my kitchen. Normally an uneventful process, however it didn’t die, and instead was trying desperately to get away even though it’s neck was snapped in the trap. Oy… It was like 11:00pm and my husband was at a friends house and didn’t think that my frantic phone call telling him to come home and deal with this mouse was warranted.

    I wound up with the genius idea of putting on rubber cleaning gloves and taking the mouse out of the trap and subsequently throwing it into a concrete barricade across the street. Well, this plan would have been great if I wasn’t 8 months pregnant and bawling my eyes out apologizing to the stupid mouse in the middle of the street at 11pm. Needless to say, my attempt to kill the mouse by throwing it into the barricade actually ended up as me missing the barricade and throwing him into the prickly blackberry bushes behind instead.

    Then the guilt really hit when I thought about that “poor” mouse dieing a slow and miserable death in the black berry bushes. And yes, the thought of crawling into the bushes to find the mouse did cross my mind… I can sympathize with your mom! :)

      Oh dear, Sarah! I would have been just as hysterical. This is traumatic!

    Your mom’s a super-hero cape is showing! I feel lucky to have seen you read this *live*. So…..did she get to keep the pig?
