Okay, if you think that title is a witty way of saying something about writing, you would be wrong. The title is actually literal. 🙂

This morning, I was getting ready for work. I had been to the bathroom and had just put my contact lenses in. My husband decided he would get up and go to the bathroom, which irritated me because I needed to go again. But I was willing to wait…and wait. When he finished, he flushed the toilet. Suddenly, all the water (and everything else) started rushing out of the bowl. It wasn’t one of those where when it’s stopped up it just slowly starts to overflow. No, this was a deluge. Hubby tried to stop the horror with paper towels, but the water was faster than he was. Now keep in mind, I have a BIG bathroom where the toilet is in a little room by itself. The water kept coming and soon the WHOLE bathroom floor was covered. I tried to walk in there with my flip flops (I don’t know why) and it came up over them and onto my toes. Then the smell hit me. Hubby almost had to clean up vomit. I started gagging and had to rush out of the room. Soon, I was going to be late for work, and I still had to go to the bathroom. I rushed to the other bathroom, hoping this was a one toilet problem, and not our septic tank. Whew, at least that wasn’t a problem. So now, what was I going to do about my shower and brushing my teeth? Hubby was still cleaning up (ahem) water. I happened to have some of those cleansing cloths, so instead of a shower, I had a little “cloth bath”. I couldn’t bring myself to brush my teeth, since it makes me gag most of the time anyway, so I swished with Listerine, and brought a toothbrush to work. After much Lysol, the floor was finally clean, just in time for me to put on my make-up. But my HUSBAND wasn’t clean. Although he had on disposable gloves, his feet were filthy. Poor guy finally got into the shower. I got off to work. My cats watched the fiasco from the safety of the bedroom. Luckily, I don’t think anything seeped into the bedroom carpet. I see a steam cleaning of the floor happening tonight.

So…how was YOUR morning?
