So, my daughter decides that the best place to dispose of her empty bottle is down her toilet. Brilliant. Of course, not only did she do this, but she didn’t tell us until three days later. Usually, this wouldn’t be a problem because that toilet is used so infrequently.

but, of course, we had houseguests this week.

I think one of my biggest fears is being in someone’s house and overflowing their toilet. Lucky for me though, my grandfather was a plumber and he taught us a good trick. Or maybe Gav taught me the trick. i’m not sure where it came from. Either way, it’s a good bit of advice. Never flush twice. People panic when the water doesn’t go down so they flush again before the water has a chance to refill itself. that’s when the toilet overflows. So…all you people with the same fear as me, and i suspect there are several of you…don’t panic and flush twice.

Fortunately for them, and for us, the toilet didn’t overflow. But, they did come downstairs looking for a plastic Sobey’s bag. We still don’t know what they were doing up there with the bag…and i’m not so sure that i want to know…but now we have to get a plumber in to fix the toilet. argh.
