A Phrase You Do Not Want to Hear

.
"Dad, dad! There's a waterfall in the kitchen!"

We are not the Trumps, Kimora Lee nor Leona Helmsley. We do not, repeat, not have a waterfall in our kitchen. However, when Handsome Husband forgets that he was filling up a 10 gallon bucket on the kitchen counter, well, then yes, we do.

Yep, those are the things that always spark complete terror. It's usually a toilet problem at our house, but either way, no fun.

I'm sorry, but that just put a smile on my face. (of course I didn't have to clean it up) Our waterfalls have come thru the kitchen ceiling from the 2nd floor bathtub! UGH!!!! Hope it wasn't toooooo bad. Tam

*I* think it's hilarious - today. But poor HH is still horrified over it. I didn't tell you about the dripdripdrip I heard in the rec room when I ran down to get the towels.

I'm sorry this happened to you guys but I did have a chuckle over it. That sounds like something my hubs would do!!

How would you like to be on your honeymoon taking a romantic shower not realizing the shower curtain was OUTSIDE of the shower?? Imagine the horror of opening your hotel room door to the manager politely informing you that there was a leak in the ceiling of the dining room below your bathroom...true story...parents' honeymoon 50 years ago!

I am so glad that my family isn't the only ones who do these things. And it is much funnier the next day isn't it?
