In my first year of university I was posh and I got in the halls where we had our own en-suite with a shower. This made me happy beyond words, because I do not like sharing toilets/washing facilities with anyone else. Because I am a snob.
It was about 3am and I was watching Prank Control on my laptop. I was a student and therefore being awake, and watching children’s television on BBC iPlayer at 3 in the morning was totally normal.
Undeterred I started to clean the sink and wipe the mirror. Eventually all I had left to do was put toilet cleaner in the toilet bowl and scrub it a bit. Upon doing this I came to realise that I had come to near the end of the bottle.
Therefore I dumped the lot down the toilet and started to run the water for my shower.
Apparently it becomes a problem when the said hot steam is in the same room as a large amount of unflushed bleach.
The bleach heated up and mingled with the steam, making some kind of toxic chemical cloud in my bathroom. I, in my shower, was oblivious to this fact until the headache started in.
So I continued to shower.
And I nearly fainted. My knees buckled and I head butted the shower knob.
But, I am a fool. And my hair was full of bubbles.
Was I going to get out of the shower with shampoo in my hair or was I going to risk death by rinsing it out?
I also then conditioned and rinsed my hair again before getting out, throwing my window open and collapsing on my bed wrapped in towels, feeling really really sick.
I sat down.
Because I am a winner. Always.
