British Columbia, Canada
Wait...Wait! Picture this, a fancy suite in a hotel in Italy on my honeymoon...my husband decided to go for a walk while I had a bubble bath. I opened the patio doors,, got into this luxurious tub, big enough for an army with taps of a golden color; the handle knobs are wings and the tap is a swan's head. Well I have bubbles up to the top of the tub, and for some unGodly reason I decided to stick my big toe into the mouth of the swan tap. YUP...it got stuck...the harder I tried to get it out, the worse it got. Over a half an hour went by I am sure and no one came, finally I started screaming, and a housekeeper came, she got the maintenance man to come, so there I was freezing and only two towels covering me, with some Italian trying to get my toe out of the tap. No way, it wasn't going to happen! My husband shows up shortly after and said let's get the Fire Dept. (well of course, let's invite all of Italy). Soon the hotel plumber joins and then two firemen show up, and they have to remove the tap from the wall, and cut the thing off with a miniature electric saw. I am still in this tub to this point now remember with a shirt on the color of my face (red). After 2 and 1/2 hours, off comes the swan; I got out of that tub, and my husband starts killing himself laughing! I stayed married to that one for only 2 years I didn't really like his sense of humor!!!
