I'll be Home for Lunch-time...

New ceiling fan and light: $199

Re-dry-walling the living room ceiling: $399

Pouring half your bath out on the upstairs bathroom floor: a spanking and a long time-out

Coming home for lunch to find water pouring down from the living room ceiling: priceless

Yikes!!! We've had it coming down our front hall ceiling...a certain child decided to stop up the tub while taking a shower because it looked "cool" to watch the water pouring over the edge of the tub...he thought the heating vent was a drain and the water would just go down there...gee...

I figure you got enough help, but if you need more just holler and we'll see if I can work something out. :P

What did you have for lunch?

Lunch? I imagine a stiff drink was involved.

More like a can of whup-a$$.

Yikes. A priceless moment of the kind you could do without!

Been there, done that. It's worse when the ceilings are plaster.

And the can of whoop-a$$ is MUCH bigger.

Yikes! We had a WC tank overflow a few times, sending a rushing stream down the hall. You've made me thankful I have only one floor.

This post terrifies me.

What did Mrs. Darwin have to say for herself after the time-out?

MrsDarwin said...

MrsDarwin only wishes someone would give her a time out...

With their recent experience of travelling through the desert... maybe they thought the water just needed to be shared around the environment a bit more!
