Child’s play

Sorry I’m posting so late, it’s been a hectic day I had babysitting from 6:30-10:30. I’m now sat in bed listening to The Lonely Island at around midnight.

So my friend J was saying how when he was younger he thought that if horses layed down that they would die. To be fair I’m pretty sure horses sleep stood up so I can understand why he would have thought that but he thought that these horses were forced to spend their entire life stood up otherwise they would die. This then got me thinking about all the weird thing we thought and believed when we were little. When I was younger my older sister told my that if you left the lid of the toilet up that frogs would crawl out of it at night, I was scared of frogs and she knew it so everytime I walked past the bathroom I had to check for frogs. My sister caused me to have an irrational fear of toilet climbing frogs. I know a lot of people who use to be scared of staying in the bath while you drain the water out and being sucked in and swallowed by the plug hole or that a shark would come up it and eat you. Fears that make no sense at all but filled us with fright. I look back and laugh at how ridiculous we all were.

Did anyone else have any strage fears or weird thought when they were a kid?

Now I think it’s time for bed, just after I check the toilet seat lid is down ;).

Night everybody, stay safe from toilet frogs. love Em xxx

Crazy Antics

 

I have one of the craziest but loveliest best friends in the world, she’s great and she’s also hilarious. Today after college we went into town with two of our other best friends and our first stop was obiously KFC. she was sat staring out of the window eating her chicken and she asked “what’s above that shop?.” Above the shop were dark, dusty windows so we just said that we don’t know. “We should break in and find out” well that was not the response we expected. we all burst out laughing. we then began our plan for our Fake break in, we went through every idea from undercover employees to Mission Impossible style helicopter drops. we had it all set out. Mission Impossible it is, usuing spy gear like hacking, glass cutters, spy goggles and towels yes towels. Her plan: if we wrap the alarm in enough towels no one would hear it. We would then break in just to find out what is inside, which is probably just boxes.

Then the next plan began. My best friend has a love for animals but she really loves orcas. Reacently, she went to sea world in florida and now she wants to ‘rescue’ them this time with disguises. Now when I say disguises I don’t mean as a keeper or a worker she wanted us to dress up as Orcas! by now I am in fits of laughter.
“Ok but how are we going to get them out?” I asked “I’ll get my Nan to fly us in a helicopter, She’s only had one flying lesson but its alright” Now I’m crying “So your Nan is going to fly us in a helicopter to Florida, then we’ll drop into the water in our orca costumes and get them to swin into these cages so your nan can fly them to the ocean where we can set them free?.”
“Yes and I’ll get my Grandad to run around naked!”
“what? why?”
“it’s a distraction”
“but it will be night time no one will be there”
“ooh yeah, oh well.”
She’s crazy but to be fair so am I, I love her to pieces . We’re more than ikely to have more gems like these from my crazy bunch of friends (i love you guys).

Hope you enjoyed it .See you soon

Introductions

They say first impressions are everything, so lets hope this goes OK.

Hi there I’m em, I’ve never had a blog before other than my Tumblr but that’s more of a ‘ooh look a funny cat pic, lets re-blog that!’ kind of thing . This blog is going to be a bit random, I will talk about random things that I think of, review things, post interesting things about my day, pretty much everything. ย (I’m Dyslexic so if I make spelling mistakes I apologize)

You may be wondering why the name Pope and Glory, well I was struggling to come up with a name for my blog so I asked my best friend and we started to brainstorm puns that included my surname, Pope . I then got the idea of Pope and Glory as a play on words for Hope and Glory, an iconic British song and I am British so long story short (too late) here I am Pope and Glory! ย
