A plumbing problem
And Montezuma’s Revenge
With  broken toilet

Water it did rise
The family jewels it did surprise
At the hospital

It was bad enough
Adding insult to injury
Dunkin’ the ole boys

He dried himself off
Back to bed he went to wait
While clenching his cheeks

Get a riser seat
That will keep him high and dry
Soon or need clean sheets.

A plumbing problem
And Montezuma’s Revenge
With broken toilet

Reaching from behind
Pulling the handle to flush
Then watching it rise


Water it did rise
The family jewels it did surprise
At the hospital

A floater massage
One could surely live without
Seated on whirlpool


It was bad enough
Adding insult to injury
Dunkin’ the ole boys

A septic salute
All rise to the occasion
Including you boys


He dried himself off
Back to bed he went to wait
While clenching his cheeks

His built-in depth gauge
May have been a bit too short
Next time use dipstick


Get a riser seat
That will keep him high and dry
Soon or need clean sheets.

Roto-Rooter man
Arriving after the fact
Has a longer snake

...just bein' Bluesy

Haha! Well it didn't 'go down' quite like that. The water was clean, it didn't come close to over flowing when flushed, but for some reason the water level had raised. (As he so rudely realized.) He quickly stood up, still needing to go. I suggested the riser seat because I figured it'd be easier/quicker to get than a maintenance man on a weekend.
I appreciate you joining in my fun ! ~L

Oh, I see. Well, for me the giggles started when I reached...

Capture a quiet moment, Miss Lori and savor the flavor.

I went home at noon to pick up some things and take a break from grumpy. Don't really blame him for being mad about it and some other things that have happened, but him having his panties in a wad all day is a waste of precious energy.He needs to take his chill pill. If he can get down enough calories today they will let him go home Monday afternoon. ~L

I do hope it all works out so that both of you have some peace. But it sounds like the load has mostly been on you, Miss Lori...but storms make trees take deeper roots, and I see you as a towering oak. I think others see you this way as well.

...peace, my friend.
