Because this week we were fortunate enough (oh yeah, we were lucky) to be without one for 20 hours.
And as we only have one in our home...being one down means...
we had none!
How did we cope, you ask?
Well, we called it indoor camping.
And, as you may know, I hate camping!
Even if you are a camper, I bet you still have a toilet.
And if you don't...yeah, well....good for you.
There were buckets, potties, nappies, plastic bottles and gagging
And that is all I'm going to say for fear of T.M.I.
I do know there are people in the world who live WITHOUT toilets.
But we don't.
We're quite used to ours.
And when the realization hits that ours was out of action, after calling pretty much the whole yellow pages listings for plumbers in our area (it was knock off time...3pm Wednesday afternoon...no one could come until the morning!) I admit I went into a mini panic.
We have two small children.
We have a bucket...plastic bottles...nappies...
And I felt pretty good about that.
Before you smirk...
imagine yourself and your family
if you can.
