TEN WORD TUESDAY ON WEDNESDAY
with more words thrown in for flavor
Yesterday was supposed to be a productive day around the old homestead. I had to finalize and customize my cruise itinerary with the Cruise Personalizer online. I want to share my itinerary with Pumpkin Delight because she's going on a different cruise but we dock in the same ports. So I answer all the really important questions like, "do you want a robe in your cabin?" or "do you request a newspaper or a wheelchair?".
I also wanted to get a pedicure, then do some shopping for stuff I will never find in
I turn on the shower to get the hot water going, go potty, then jump in the show....la la la la. Shampoo hair, shave...la la la la. I step out of the shower on to a wet floor...a soaking wet FLOODED FLOOR. My toilet overflowed and I had no clue because I flushed and immediately got in the shower.
I don't know what caused it, but I do know how to use a plunger..
and that's what I did. But no matter how hard I try, it doesn't do the job. I call the office here at the compound, and they tell me they will have a plumber out within an hour.
Two hours later, the plumber arrives....it's not Josephine the Plumber but Hobo Kelly the plumber! Imagine that? It made me wonder if Josephine became a clown.
The plumber lady tries to fixes the toilet. Then she tries again. Then she leaves, without saying good-bye. Then she comes back with a new toilet! She installs it with the help of the compound's maintainence guy. This is the guy who destroyed my bird nest. Remember? By the time they finish up...the day is shot! I wash the bathroom floor, then take a nap.
Today, I'm getting a pedicure, then going shopping for stuff that I'll never find here in
hell Central Texas.
