Plumbing????


Apparently there is some unwritten etiquette rule that says it's inappropriate to post pictures of toilets. Which is TOO BAD! Because I've got a DOOZIE!!! Here's the story behind the elusive photo.

Last night after tucking the kids into bed, Jake went into the bathroom and shut the door. I proceeded to walk down the hall towards our room. Just as I was passing the bathroom door, I hear this awful gurgling sound, like something was coming up the pipes and into the bathroom through the toilet. You know, like the sound of the ooze or the zombie-mind-eating slugs that come to find their next victim. (Nice image, huh?) So I figured what-ever it was, Jake could handle it and continued to our room. Then I hear him say, "Carrie, you've GOT to come see this!" So I cautiously open the door thinking I'll either be grossed out, or die laughing at the scene on the other side. (It was the later.) I see Jake standing there, by the toilet with it's seat up and it is OVER-FLOWING with BUBBLES!!!! Yeah, you read that right! BUBBLES!!!! Not water, or worse... BUBBLES!!! Like how sometimes people will put detergent in fountains as a joke. After a few flushes, they all disappear. Jake walks past me and says, "This is why I hate apartments."

Lucky for us, this was an easy fix. No plumber needed. But that sure would have been a funny phone call to make!!!
