So of all the crazy things that happen in a life time, this has got to be one of the funniest. My toilet got recalled! Now this particular toilet has been the source of laughs and comedy at my house since it was installed, the reason being – it is a pressure tank toilet (like those at the ball park) because it sits on a cement slab and the water can’t go straight down. The noise has sent many a young person out of the powder room at an extremely high velocity. Those of us who know what is coming can’t help but hang around outside to see the expression on their face. (There is a warning sign!) Well, evidently, it can become an explosive toilet too, so now I have to call a 1-800 number for replacement parts. I kind of hope it doesn’t change the noise factor.

It seems to me, the older I get, the funnier things get. I hope all of you live to an age and a point in your life where you can set yourself free from artificial constraints and simply enjoy what comes along. The stress of micro-managing your life and what comes with it, isn’t worth it. Stress is a killer. It takes the humor right out of your day – and well, not everyone has a Turbo Toilet around to lighten the load.
