So....we have plumbers this morning in the front part of the house........I'm in the open shower in master bath.....DH walks in and says "Hi"....  

I STARTLED so much I thought the end was near!

Please show a little sympathy for us startle likely PWP.   However, it was an easy and quick way to get laugh of the day out of DH! (Smile)

I went shopping. In my mind I'm repeating eggs, whipping cream, baking powder. Just three things, I should have written them down, but just three things so I got it. Park the car at the far end of the parking lot, place was packed. Three things, that is all I have to remember.

Truck backed out suddenly, startle reaction, fell over (remembered to tuck my head in).  Got back into the store and came back with Ice Cream, coffee, and baking soda.

My wife now writes out the shopping list.

I've had an exaggerated startle response for years before diagnoses.  My mom always told me it was a sign of a guilty conscience.  Makes me laugh now but at the time she could have been right.^_^

So funny! 

Having the startle thing is really not funny but it makes others laugh...unless it is DH.  I forget he's in the house and jump out of my skin and scream when he enters a room....which makes him jump more.  He says he ...or I...will have a sudden death moment if it continues.  So now..when I scream I break it into a song that says..."it's not your fault...i know you live here...and you have every right to come i to the room..".  I keep singing until he calms down and I calm down...oy!  

Clerks in stores...even babies near me...it is so,embarrassing....its not a big deal if it brings a smile to someone...which Tom, your story gave me a real lol...thanks for sharing.
