The excavator and crew arrived around 9am to finally fix the problem. What problem you ask? Well, that stinking crappy problem you get when the underground pipe breaks away from the sewer pump and liquid oozes onto the grass. Near that one little patch of snow that mysteriously melted on Sunday. And of course underneath a few feet of snow too! Yes! I had a broken sewer pipe deep underground in need of a fix.
In the meantime the jokes poured in from my many well-wishing friends and family. Do you know how many jokes you hear while waiting for your broken sewer pipe to get fixed? TOO MANY! Here’s a few of the ones that came my way while waiting for the excavator to leave my yard.
Oh! What a bummer
Such a S#*$$* problem to have
Urine deep doodoo
Ha!ha! They all meant well. And the jokes did keep me smiling. So now I’m good to go (pun intended). Just a few days of inconvenience, and worry, and concern. Besides, I now know more about sewer lines than I ever care to admit.
Oh the joys of homeownership! At least my grass will be green in the spring!
Throughout the month of March I will be participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge with the community of writers over at Two Writing Teachers. Each day I will post a draft of a story detailing a small snippet from my life. This will be my sixth year participating, and each year I marvel at all the small moments I would have missed in my life if not for this challenge. I am grateful to Stacey Shubitz, Betsy Hubbard, Beth Moore, Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski, Melanie Meehan, and Amy Ellerman for hosting this wonderful event!
