Woman Glues Mouth Shut

I was recently reminded of the word schadenfreude, n. enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others. It was on the TV show Child Genius. One of the kids had to spell it as part of a competition and she got it wrong. LOL.

If you enjoy the troubles of others you'll like the story from New Zealand of a woman who woke up in the middle of the night wanting to relieve her cold sores with cream. The trouble was she kept her cold sore cream next to her superglue, probably because she has never seen a sitcom in her entire life or something.

The newspapers said the poor woman ended up gluing her lips together. So far, still no comment

She said: "I have all my ointments in a tray in the cupboard, so I got out of bed and I dived into the tray. I couldn't smell it because I was blocked up. And then I got into bed and thought: what have I put on my mouth?" She's not the first person to think that last bit, I'm sure.

She then had trouble calling the police, or as she puts it: "I couldn't speak on the phone, so I couldn't tell them where I lived. I couldn't tell them my phone number." She wouldn't tell that what was wrong, she just mumbled in agreement when they asked questions. It must've been like they'd married her.

The best bit about this story is why we know about it. She told New Zealand's 3 News about what happened on condition of anonymity. She didn't want them to release her name. I'd lke to think they said, "Don't worry, our lips are sealed... oops."
