The Great Flood, and then the fudge

I heard water running in the bathroom -- way too much water running. I rushed in there and there was about half an inch of standing water around the toilet, which had somehow both plugged up and kept running until it runneth over. I wiggled the handle to stop it running, plunged it to get it draining, and then threw pretty much every towel in the house onto the floor to sop up all that water. So now the dryer is going (after washing the wet towels)... but:

I then made some fudge brownies, which are cooling on the stovetop right now waiting for some chocolate icing. The smell of hot fudge fills the house.

Life is good again... that is all.

  1. Sounds like you also made some fudge brownies *before* the toilet clogged.

    Yuk, yuk.

  2. After a stressful incident like that, I'd want to make some desserts too.

  3. Mmmmmm, Fudge. At least you caught the water before it could do a lot of damage! Once, when I was mowing the lawn, my washer let loose all the water in its tub. The corkboard in the floors of trailers doesn't tolerate water very well. I've had to have a lot of flooring replaced.
