Little known holidays

Feb 13, 2017 | Uncategorized

Did you know that last night was Fix-the-leaky-toilet Eve?

I wasn’t even aware of this spectacular holiday until the great wet sock discovery at 10 p.m. (always pleasant). But since I just fixed the same problem on the upstairs toilet a month ago (loose tank bolt), I knew I could handle it.

I had one of those “stand aside peasants while I save the day” moments, only to discover that every piece of metal (from the bolts to the slimy chain to the oddly flimsy arm  that is seemingly in control of the entire functionality of the toilet) was rusted. This meant that I couldn’t fix the toilet last night.

Worse, with every component too ancient and brittle, I broke the shut-off valve. I now have a lovely purple wrench attached to the bolt.  It adds a little something to the room, I think.

On the bright side, today is (yup, you guessed it) Fix-the-leaky-toilet Day! And I have decided to celebrate it.

Wish me luck! 😉

  1. Been There, Done That. If I can put them together, you can too. And, it is a thrill to go to plumbing store and actually know what you need. Of course the wrong size the first time was part of my plan.

    Best of luck.


    • Yes, Annette, buying the wrong size was also part of my plan today. 😉
      All that matters is that it works! Woohoo!
