This happened to me last year.....I hope it makes you giggle

Stuck on you

I noticed that the weather had been turning out much colder

And when the air is cool outside I find that I am bolder

So up I go to finds my boots and travel lands uncharted

To find the heel and sole divorced, yes they have parted.

Now hubby knows how I can be and hides the dangerous things

But I know he has it somewhere, superglue does not have wings

So I venture to the cupboard where he keeps his bits and bobs

And all those nice exciting things he uses for his jobs.

So in I go, torch in hand, to look for what I seek

He has so much stuff in there it could well take me a week

Then I see it, yes I do, a pack full in all its glory

And please read on if you dare to follow with my story.

I climb the stairs once again to do this little job

I trip and try to save myself, my hand it hits my gob

I suppose I was just lucky that I held the glue up high

It could have been real nasty had I stabbed it in my eye.

I sit upon the bed and I start to read the label

Then I place my broken boot upon the bedside table

I twist and tug, and tug and pull and using all my might

The lids flies off the other way and then I get a fright.

My hand it feels all sticky and I don't know what to do

I tell my legs to stand up quick and head off to the loo

Then I see there's something wrong, my legs they just won't move

And when they do I find my brand new quilt is getting in the groove.

I cannot put the glue down the tube is welded to my hand

And as I try to free it I notice it's THAT brand

I stare at it in horror, Loctite it says on the label

And as I flop down on the bed I get stuck to the ruddy table.

Never one to give up I try to get the boot and fix it

And think to myself, Fibro and glue, you should never mix it

I finally get the glue in and push the bits together

I wish hubby would come home, this will last forever.

So in he comes and shouts my name and wonders where I am

I tell him I'm upstairs and I got myself in a hell of a jam

He comes up to help me and rips me from the quilt

And then I look at all the mess and am consumed with guilt.

My quilt was pretty purple and now it is in the bin

How was I supposed to know you open superglue with a pin

And my favourite jeans are patchy not fit for wear no more

And the boots I wanted to repair were stuck onto the floor.

I wanted to save money by fixing the things I already had

And now it's cost us even more, that makes me feel so bad

So now I don't touch superglue, leave it to the experts

Coz when I try to open it, superglue, yes it squirts.
