Never Flush a…


(Originally posted on the website Continuum…)

Well, the toilet went crazy
Yesterday afternoon
The plumber he says
Never flush a tampoon!
This great information
Cost me half a week’s pay
And the toilet blew up
Later on the next day-ay-eee-ay
Blew up the next day

Lyrics from “Flakes” by Frank Zappa

The first human voice I heard this morning came floating down the hallway with the words:

“Dad! The toilet’s overflowing!!!!”

First, I freaked and ran around looking for towels.

Second, I cursed. Or maybe that was first.

Third, I had a good laugh over it all when Zappa’s lyrics came to mind.

The moral… “Don’t cry over spilt *milk*.”
