A middle-aged woman gets herself stuck and needs help from her family, best friend and dog
Thirty-eight year old Lillian Robertson was walking through her living room when she accidentally tripped over her husband's dirty clothes and watched in her phone flew out of her jacket pocket and into a rather small vent in the wall.

The middle-aged woman was 5'4, 143 pounds, had long dark curly blond hair and brown eyes covered by glasses.
Her curvaceous figure was covered by a short red dress with white polka dots and black tights.

Lillian said, "I can't believe it,I've told more then five hundred times to put his washing in the basket," as she did herself before running over to the vent and stuck her hands inside but still her phone was just out of her reach.

The middle-aged blond then realised that she would have to enter the vent to retrieve it despite her concerns about whether she would fit given it's rather small size and her curvy figure.

She then stuck her head inside the vent and after a brief struggle,her entire top half was soon inside,leaving only her hips,backside and legs sticking out.

Lillian soon found her phone and put in her jacket pocket before jokingly wiggling her behind and said to herself, "I must look so ridiculous right now,I hope no one sees me like this," as she then tried to back of the vent but was absolutely shocked to discover that she was unable to.

"You have got to be kidding me,maybe sticking my entire top half in here wasn't my smartest idea ever, especially after that big dinner and second peice of chocolate sponge cake," said the middle-aged blond as she placed her hands against the vent and pushed and pushed with all her might but still it just refused to release it's grip on her.

The now concerned and slightly frustrated middle-aged woman then tried to push and wiggle herself free again,even putting her left foot against the wall for more leverage but still she just wouldn't budge and was hit with the realisation that she was in fact completely and utterly stuck.

"Oh,it's just no use,Tom,could you please come in here,I need your help," said Lillian as she couldn't believe that she had actually gotten herself stuck in a vent in her living room.

The young man ran into the room and burst into laughter when he saw his wife's behind sticking out of the vent and after her explanation said, "I apologise for not putting my washing away,don't worry,I'll pull you out," as he then grabbed onto her hips and pulled and pulled with all his might until he lost his grip and tumbled backwards onto the carpet.

"OH,it's just no use,you just won't budge,I'll go and get help," said the middle-aged man as he returned with his wife's best friend Anna,who burst into laughter when she saw the situation.

She then grabbed onto his waist while he pulled his wife's hips and the two pulled and pulled with all their strength but still the middle-aged woman just refused to move.

"Wow,she's really wedged herself in there tight," said Anna as Lillian's children Michael and Sharon suddenly returned home and began laughing when they heard their mother's situation but were more than happy to help pull.

Sharon then grabbed onto her brother's t-shirt,Michael pulled the hem of Anna's skirt,Anna pulled Tom's waist while he pulled his wife's hips as the four pulled and pulled with all their strength but still the middle-aged blond still wouldn't budge a single inch.

"Mom,this is just like the enormous turnip story you used to read to me," joked her daughter.
"I wonder if you're going to have to say wait for a bit like Winnie the pooh," joked her son .

Lillian felt so humiliated but did laugh at the jokes and said, "This all comes from not having vents big enough for curvaceous women like me," as everyone else burst into laughter.

Just then the family dog Baxter appeared and began pulling at the hem of Linda's skirt,who said, "Mom,I think if Baxter helps you might finally come free,I don't even mind him pulling the hem of my new skirt," as everyone began pulling once again but unbelievably,the middle-aged woman still simply wouldn't budge.

"I think I'm going to be stuck here forever," said Lillian.
"No,you're not honey,come on everyone,we can actually do this,let's really put our backs into it," said Tom as he once again grabbed onto his wife's hips.

Anna pulled his waist while Michael pulled the hem of Anna's skirt,Linda pulled her brother's t-shirt and Baxter pulled the hem of Linda's skirt.
"All right everyone,heave," said the middle-aged man as the epic tug of war with the vent over his wife began again.

"OW,OH,OW,that really hurts,I think I'm going to be pulled in two," said the middle-aged blond,who was streched to her absolute limit as a tiny mouse appeared out of a hole in the wall and began pulling Baxter's tail as a POP sound was suddenly heard.

Lillian was pulled from the vent in the wall at last,sending everyone tumbling backwards into a heap on the carpet as the mouse looked on.

"Thank goodness for that,I'm finally free,I've never been so happy to see my lower half," said the middle-aged woman as she hugged and kissed her husband before hugging everyone else including Baxter,who licked her face before thanking everyone for helping her out then noticed the mouse and thanked him as well.

"I guess this was like the enormous turnip where the mouse was the one who finally got it out," joked a laughing Anna.

Lillian then made everyone dinner to say thank you for rescuing and even gave the mouse some cheese as everyone began laughing at the ridiculousness of the entire situation as Tom promised to always pick up his dirty clothes in future.
