Toilets and Eggplants - A Rant
Been one of those days...
Two weeks ago an overnight guest sheepishly admitted that he accidentally flushed his toothbrush down the toilet. Of course I glossed over it, all the while asking myself how the hell that happens. I didn't want to know.
While flushing up till now has been "lethargic," this morning Mr. John here decided he'd had enough with having an Oral B stuck in his throat. Can we say flood?
Do you have problems thinking clearly at 5:30 in the morning while the coffee is still brewing? Know you have a plunger and an auger somewhere in the house (basement, attic, garage, workshop) but are clueless in a post-sleep emergency? Add in the girls barking to go outside and wee-wee and the parrot screaming his head off for breakfast, and I was about finished before I even started.
Anyway, off to HD to buy yet another pair of toilet de-cloggers. Just had to enter through the nursery. All their annuals were stacked on rolling shelves--tons of flowers and veggies. Half of the toms and peppers had bitten the dust and all the eggplants. Obviously, they left them uncovered during the chill the last few nights and they succumbed.
What is it with this? I see this every spring. Can't they hire somewhat-knowledgeable plant people to work in the nursery? Such a shame and waste. All those Ichibans!
