I Am Not a Plumber!

That haunting Eeeeyaaaghhh! you heard earlier was me, wrestling with my bathroom sink. The sink has the advantage; when I open the cabinet to get at the pipes, there’s hardly room in there for me to take a breath. Any adjustment of my position is a job for a contortionist.

Anyway, the drain was clogged and I had to take it apart and unclog it. In principle, an easy job. In practice… Eeeeyaaaghhhh! Because I can’t bend over, I can’t see what I’m doing. That’s how things get done backwards and have to be done over again. And the bathroom is not air conditioned. I now look like I took a shower with my clothes on. I didn’t.

So that’s it for me today, folks. I am dehydrated. I am a spent force. So that’s it until cat video time. I was going to write about Rush Limbaugh breaking off his love affair with the NFL on account of all those stupid “protests,” but I just can’t afford to get any hotter than I am already.

    There are a lot of things that I used to do that are extremely difficult now, so
    don’t kill yourself; we can survive while you recuperate.

      Oh, I finally got the job done. If our bathroom were just a foot or two larger in each direction, I could’ve done it in 15 minutes. Maybe a more accurate headline would’ve been “I Am Not a Contortionist!”

    At least it’s over and done with.

    Been there, done that. But now when our bathroom sink gets clogged up I just put baking soda down the drain, followed by vinegar and hot water. It acts like a volcano going off at first and seems to make matters worse, but then the pipes become clear once again. Sure beats being an acrobatic.

    I thought Rush Limbaugh was going to break down and cry that first segment today. His precious Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t come out for the National Anthem. I guess that’s the Leftids’ goal, no more National Anthem at sporting events.
