In what I'm sure was a flurry of akward-looking naked clumsiness, I managed to drop my deoderant, my underwear, and K-Mack's curling iron into the toilet this morning. It had been recently flushed, and I fished it all out rather quickly and cleaned it up immediately after, but sorry anyway K-Mack.

Not sure you should feel so good about the "It had been recently flushed..." part Dan.
"Did you know that a film develops above and below the water line in toilets, which harbours germs? Each time you flush, these germs can be released. Continual flushing will not remove the film. In fact a second flush contains more germs, as germs have a propensity to build up.Tests have shown that spray in the immediate area containing bacteria is still present up to 30 minutes after flushing, and that even with the lid closed, airborne particles can be detected at head height above the toilet." http://www.thecleanzine.com/pages/SneezeEffect.html

Gross. You kept everything. I think this might be the final blow against your self-proclaimed neat-freakness...
I dropped my pajama bottoms in a toilet once (due to a balanceing act in a London youth hostel bathroom...long story) but I threw them out.

I don't live in a youth hostel.
I threw out the deoderant, put the undies in the hamper, and sterilized the curling iron. I think I'll survive.

Of course you can live- its not your curling iron. And its one pair of underwear. I'm not a self-proclaimed neat freak, and I would've tossed those in a heartbeat. Gross.

you don't live in a youth hostel?!...hmmm..how strange.
My story was more of an FYI as to a comparison.

I usually don't take the bait on ones this easy, but did it dawn on anyone that had dan not sterilized the curling iron (how does one DO that, anyway?), K-Mack might easily have become a sh*thead?
Nothing like bathroom humor this early in the morning...

Does this mean I will be getting a new curling iron for Christmas instead of a toaster oven?

Even if that is true about toilet film, I'd still rather live here than some dumpy third-world country where they don't even have toilets and they're still disease-ridden...

curling iron ??
I haven't used a curling iron since 1984 when I needed to "feather" my bangs. Who uses a curling iron ? I know they're on the counter at the salon I go to - but I thought that was for the blue hairs when they get a "wash and set." Do they still SELL curling irons ?

It was only a matter of time before everyone realized what a filthy slob Dan is...mission accomplished and I didn't even have to tell the story myself. Thanks.
Poor KMACK, not only is her curling iron ruined, but someone is bashing her use of the curling iron. Why don't you just kick her when she is down. Geez.
Don't worry K, I'll get you a new curling iron, and one of those make-up compacts with a million shades of eyeshadow to put in your Caboodle. Cause I'm sure Dan has dropped that in the toilet more than once. (That thing is huge) It is going to be a great Krismas!!!

I knew this post would require me to defend myself and my use of a curling iron at some point. Yes, I use a curling iron. Only because I can not seem to master the roundbrush/hair dryer combo, which in essence is just a really complicated curling iron that requires at least three hands. I have a large barrel curling iron and it really just rounds-out the ends, no big bangs…no feathers. So, Anonymous rude person, Plllffft, I don’t care for you.
And Brent…we’ll talk about the Caboodle remark later.
