The Joy of Home Repair.

Note to self:

Next time I lay down on the floor with my head right next to the toilet so that I may remove the toilet seat bolt that has fused in place (and in the process demonstrating the effectiveness of proper tool choice and leverage) please, please let me remember to sit up before said bolt is pulled out raining toilet dust of unknown origin all over my face. There just isn't a shower long or hot enough to wash away the ick factor.

Yes, maybe a facial peel? I couldn'r help but recall the tampon on shoe incident. In that case you threw away the shoes. But this? Many people will tell you though that the bacteria on any computer keyboard is worse than the ick that leapt at you today.

At least you knew enough not to try and remove a stuck bolt with a hammer (unlike my husband). Hammers and porcelain toilets do not mix. Nothing like making mad dash to Home Depot to purchase a new toilet (for your only bathroom) only hours before company arrives for an extended stay . . .
