|Demon tub at Gramma's house|
Oh sure, it looks innocent enough NOW. 40 years ago, not so much.
This is the site of one of the bloodiest battles ever fought -- Jenny v. tub. It all started with a bath ...
... then someone decided that the bottom of the tub was slippery enough from the bubbles that she could ice skate. What a fantastic idea!
Yeah, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Let's just say I have a really nice scar on my chin. I can't remember how many stitches it needed.
Ironically enough, I've always wanted a claw-foot tub just like Gramma's in my own house.
On a side note, if you ever fill the dishwasher with liquid dish soap and it overflows, it is also good for ice skating. Just don't leave the dishwasher door open when you do it ... huh? oh, pay no attention to the scar on my shin.
Needless to say, I never did take up ice skating.
