Dan's Grossest Experience Ever

2002-05-29 14:10:06+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

I've helped butcher animals. I've had my face and mouth covered in blood from rescue breathing for someone whose face was badly damaged. I've had all the usual pet experiences, and a few of the baby ones. Last night I removed a possum who'd electrocuted himself in the inside of the back of the dryer, and started to smell. Well, I say "started to" because that sheet metal and venting sure hides a lot. I will have trouble sleeping for another few nights. Wow, was that gross. I hope the disassembly and bleach rub-down gets the smell out, or I might be shopping for a new dryer.

I think I would have just carted the dryer to the curb once I saw what it was. Just be thankful the opossum was completely dead. Those things are nasty when they still have some kick left in them. The only thing worse than a cooked oppossum is a half-done one!

Well, ya see, it wasn't the possum that was still living... And that's what made it really gross. Sprayed a lot of dilute bleach mixture last night, hopefully a few more applications will kill off the remaining stench producing germs.

It wasn't nearly as clean as the mouse in the computer (via Camworld).

Ah, with that experience fresh in your mind go watch Braveheart and you'll have a new understanding why the Brits didn't find Wallace when he hid in a decaying cow carcass. Dan now you can be a method actor, hurl on cue will be no problem :)
