I don’t have a Work-at-Home husband underfoot all day so I can be the person wielding the plunger

In CategoryNavel Gazing

The other day I had to plunge the toilet after my daughter spent some time in the bathroom.

(that’s the kind of first sentence that really draws in the reader, don’t you think?)

I gave her a gentle reminder that it’s not really necessary to use a half a roll of paper during the, um, proceedings, and sent her on her way.

Subsequently, Lego City was plagued by backed-up toilets. Right in my ear. All afternoon. In great, sewage-y detail.

Livin’ the dream, people. Living the dream.

    It takes a real woman to wield a plunger.

    Or if she needs that much TP because of a particularly problematic… proceeding… she could flush first, then wipe a bit, and flush again. I know it’s nasty (or feels that way) to flush before wiping but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

    That sounds like a snapshot of a typical day around here too! Not that I expect you to feel better but maybe it will – You are not alone! Doesn’t misery love company? Here’s to plunger free days ahead my friend.

    This just makes me laugh because my sister used to plug the toilet every time we’d go to JC Penny. It started giving her a complex.

    Not having having to plunge the toilet is the only upside to the Thai no-TP in toilet rules.

    We have a child with such …issues… in the bathroom that I fully intend to teach her how to plunge her own-self. As soon as she’s tall enough.
