The Weekly Recap: The Great Toilet Auger Battle of 2016 (Week of 12/4/16)
Happy Sunday! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffienated Book Reviewer; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Book Photo Sundays, hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog.
Hello everybody! It's only a week and three days until I leave to visit my brother! I feel like time is moving faster than it usually is, or maybe it's just me. #COYER Blackout starts this week, and I'm hoping that I have enough books to keep me tied over until it ends. On Tuesday I have to go to the DMV, which is always fun (said no one ever). The one in my area moved to a new building, so it will be interesting to see the new building. So, my toilet has clogged 3 times in the last three months (always conveniently when I get my period), so I decided to take drastic measures. My mom a I went to Home Depot and got a six foot toilet auger. Basically it's this tool that sends a coil down the toilet line, and clears whatever is causing the plug. So, my Mom and I jump in after reading the basic instructions, and it's apparently a lot harder to use than we thought. (a) This thing is huge. It took both my Mom and I to use it. (b) This thing is tough to use. So, my Mom stuck it into the toilet, and starts twisting the handle to get the coil into the line. Okay, easy enough. Three feet are in the toilet, but we can't figure out how to get the other three feet in. We watch a quick YouTude video, and figure it out. Six feet in, complete. Well, the auger had decided that it liked being in the toilet, and moved it. That's right, the auger was stuck in the toilet. I remember my Mom and I just standing in the bathroom, looking at this auger sticking out of the toilet. My Mom muttering about how stupid this thing is, and my Googling "How to get a toilet auger that's stuck in the toilet out of the toilet." Then, trying to get the auger out of the toilet, it broke. The fucking auger broke in the toilet. So, now there's a bit of coil sticking out the the toilet, and that's it. My Mom sticks a couple of washcloths in the toilet, and just starts pulling the coil out of the toilet. My Mom is amazing. So, the toilet is still plugged. So naturally, my Mom and I do the whole thing all over again. The second time went a lot smoother, and the toilet is now working again. In the end, my Mom and I sat crying in the bathroom from laughter, because of how hard that was. Someone's going to come look at it, because something is defiantly wrong with it, but at least it works again. Have a good week everybody! :)

-INSTAGRAM PIC OF THE WEEK-
"He didn't look at me. 'Do you know why I survive the darkness, no matter how much it burns me?' 'Because you're an immortal demon lord?' 'Because I forget. I always hear a voice in the darkness, saying words that burn me alive. I survive because I always forget that voice as soon as it speaks. But you , my dear Pandora-' He turned on me with a vicious smile. 'You are not half so good at forgetting. So I will have to do it for you.'" -Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge ⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫ Day Four of #thereaderdragondecemberchallenge: Favorite Quote ⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪⚫⚪ #bookstagram #bookaddict #epicreads #instabook #bookgram #yalove #yalit #yabooks #yaliterature #bookblogger #reader #photochallenge #books
