Plunging, and I’m Not Talking Neckline
I got the call this morning, “Honey, where’s the plunger?” Oh boy. There is one way you never want to start your day -plunging a toilet.
Am I right? Ok, there are worse things like spending time with your head hanging over the toilet bowl as you vomit. Funny how some of the most unpleasant things in life involve a toilet bowl. Plunging is right near the top of my list on most unpleasant activities.
It seems like you always have to plunge the toilet when you’re trying to get out of the house to go somewhere. You’re freshly showered and nicely dressed and boom! One of your kids decides to use half a roll of toilet paper and dump it in the bowl. Argh!
Now, your greatest challenge is to avoid the “sprayback” effect of the plunging. You know what I mean. Sprayback is the nasty toilet water that’s just waiting to come at you as soon as you start plunging. The more carefully you try to plunge, the bigger the spray. And the best part is when plunging is not working and you have to don the rubber gloves and go fishing. There is nothing more humbling than getting right in there elbow deep.
It just so happens that I’m in the market for a toilet right now. You’d better believe that I will try to find the highest flow toilet I possibly can to avoid further plunging.
