It's in His Genes

Just as I dragged my sorry behind out of bed Thursday morning I heard someone fumbling with the front door lock. After having a small panic attack because I thought someone was breaking into the house, I realized it was Steve. He walked into the room, he pulled back his white coat and pointed at his pants. They were SOAKING wet. It looked like someone had dumped a bucket of water on his lap.

Apparently, he finished doing his business in the bathroom at work and flushed the toilet. The toilet then decided Steve's deposit was more than it could handle and regurgitated back at him. Yep, the Gammon intestines strike again. Someone really does need to invent a pocket plunger for my digestive system-challenged family.

After the toilet attacked him, Steve ran away (probably swearing at his forebears). He put his white coat on over his scrubs (it comes down almost to his knees) and walked straight out of the hospital and to the car. Luckily, he had time to come home and switch clothes.

Poor guy. (Snicker, snicker.)

Many a toliet live in fear of those Gammon intestines. I am sure that toliets from literally around the world are celebrating that one of them finally got even.

Well Jamie, I had never heard the honeymoon story before, but it seems we have more in common than I thought. Our first purchase as a married couple was a plunger. I was too much of a whimp to ask the front desk people for help. (it was Scott's fault, not mine by the way) What's better, we left it there as a symbol of our...welll...

We had Stephon living with us for a while. We know all about plugged toilets.

I echo my wife. Thanks for the laugh.

In defense of the Gammon intestines, there really is a lack of quality toilets out there. Just the fact that everyone owns a plunger shows that the toilets are to blame..... At least that's what I keep telling myself. - The Other One.

That was so funny. I'm sure it wasn't fun riding all the way home in winter with your pants all wet but it was sure hilarious to read about.

I'm glad Sarah told you the story about their honeymoon because otherwise I would have told you to ask her about it! I'm glad Steve came out relatively unscathed from the situation.
