Few things in between
When the Tooth Went Down the Drain and the Bathroom’s Efficient PlumbingFriday, January 20, 2012 Mary Anne Velasco
In an earlier post, I created a really short story about the day I lost my front tooth [porcelain jacket] while playing “catch me if you can” with my two hyper cats. So after I accidentally slipped and hit my lips against one edge of the bathtub, the jacket fell off and went down the drain. Despite the fact that I was suffering from massive pain, my first hope was to find the jacket. I had no idea what I was really thinking but I was so determined to find the lost tooth that I opened our tool box, put on a pair of rubber gloves, pushed the bathtub to the other side and started dismantling the pipes. Yuck --- it was for sure! Unfortunately, the tooth was long gone. Staring at the mess I did, I sighed deeply and planned for a way to put things back together. With a number of trials and errors I was able to fix the clutter. Reading about minor plumbing repairs in the past did come in handy! Ironic as it may sound, lucky me, yeah?
From the experience, I’ve learned that our bathroom’s plumbing is really efficient. No clogs, no blockage, no issues. As a matter of fact, the jacket was gone within a couple of minutes which brings me to another lesson learned --- don’t waste time searching for a lost tooth because the dentist can fix your broken smile anyway! Looking back, what has taken place that day reminds me of how senseless I can sometimes be.
How about you? Do you have any embarrassing plumbing moments?
