attack of the ceiling fan

The other day I was hot so I decided to turn on the ceiling fan in the kitchen.

I went into the dining room to unpack and heard a really loud crash noise.

Apparently, one of the fan blades flew off and the ceiling fan was going crazy and wobbling around like it was trying to free itself!!

I had to run under this thing to get to the switch to turn it off, too! It was the scariest moment of my life. I even peed my pants a little.


I had the fan on the lowest setting. It wasn't a loose screw that caused it, either. The metal shaft (idk what to call it) was completely broken in half.

The weird thing is this is the second time something like this has happened to me. I'm just glad I wasn't in the line of fire when that fan blade flew off. I probably would have been decapitated. Or worse. :P

First of all, thank you so much for following my new blog. I didn't even know you were keeping up, Ash! It really means a lot. :)

And holy crap about the ceiling fan. That thing could've killed you. Maybe you should invest in one of those standing up fans. Or just turn on the air-con?

Yeah, I'm using the AC now. I'm scared of ceiling fans. That was the second time a ceiling fan tried to kill me like that. I hope I don't have to pay for a new one. :(
