Toilet Siesta

During the Halloween Party, the toilet in our hall bathroom starting leaking. That makes two toilets out of commission, one to go. I sincerely hope Darwin fixes the hall toilet before we have to find out what it was really like to live at the turn of the century. We're pinning a lot of hopes on that one remaining toilet.

Of course, today when he went to the local hardware store to get a new wax ring, the store was closed. So silly of us. Today's Thursday, the day when every business and government office in Eutaw takes a little breather in the afternoon. I don't know who started that custom or why, but it's really getting on my nerves.

I know not being able to get a wax ring when you really need it is, well, crappy, but I think your town's practice of shutting down on Thursday afternoons is really neat--Tidy Bowl neat, actually...

Don't let you town lose that custom--once gone, you'll never see it again.

It is slightly charming, but somehow we always end up needing something in town on Thursday afternoon.
