I always thought I knew something about this. Diving deep into it, realizing I literally had no clue what I was trying to do.
It is very similar to dating. It needs to be a perfect fit. It needs to be submerged totally into the situation to be able to commit. To make it work. Otherwise, it will suck you dry or overflow with emotion.
That was me and my hot date tonight…
With a plunger.
I swear I knew how to use one.
After living on my own for a few years and my hubby traveling sometimes more than being home, I assumed I used one on occasion.
Not the case after scouring countless websites and DIY videos. After running to Lowe’s with my two little ones to buy a snake just in case my final attempt at plunging failed yet again.
On top of my fears of not being able to fix not one but TWO clogged toilets, I began my usual ranting and raving and discovered that my kids MAY have been throwing kitty litter in the one toilet from the litter boxes…
Well, well, well…
Needless to say when I googled that topic, it was not a good outcome. And the young kind fella in Lowe’s who led me to the snakes, looked bug-eyed and pursed his lips…then reiterated what I had already read online…
Very expensive…and may need to pull the toilet out.
Not this mama.
I scanned the internet some more on the how-to’s of using a snake, put my Supermom cape on and used my ten-dollar snake till I conquered both toilets.
Messy. Gross. Disgusting.
Don’t think we should ever compare dating to the act of plunging a toilet…maybe some marriages or relationships and friendships after they run their course…but not dating. They may seem similar, but I may be a tad on the grumpy side tonight after the events of my day (while the hubby is on yet another trip…not just for Utah anymore-see blog regarding Utah), so don’t take dating advice from me.
But if you are on a date and you are thinking this person may just suck the life out of you, then run. Or call a plumber…he could just be what you were always waiting for!
