just don’t

I’m thinking about having a category called “Just don’t.” As in, the opposite of “Just do it.”

The first post?

Just don’t attempt to unclog a sink with a plunger… ::coughparticularlywiththestopperstillinthesink,stoppingtheholecoughcough::.

Yeah… it doesn’t work too well.

And then you end up breaking a butter knife, chipping a nail and being late to work while attempting to yank the stopper out of the hole without actually ever touching the water that’s in the sink. Or splashing it.


So yeah, new category. :)

  5. i would have stuck my hand in the nasty sink water before attempting anything with a plunger.

    hehehe… that just sounds wrong.

  6. ROTFL… see, it wasn’t that nasty. It was clear. But it’s just the thought. ::shudder::

    And plungers are supposed to plunge things!

  19. well, we used to bicker at yours but you’ve left.

    oh and i’m soooo skeered of you. i’ll just fling some nondirty water at you and you’ll go running home to momma.

    Comment by wendykat — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 5:22 am

  20. Yep Moo, there used to be, but somebody decided to quit. jerk :P

    You better be skeered of me. And it wasn’t just nondirty, it had been SITTING. It was STAGNANT. :P

    Comment by the insider — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 10:38 am

  21. uhm… stagnant- not moving or flowing; motionless. FOUL or stale from standing: stagnant ponds.

    also seen here…

    if your sink water looked like that then i think you have more issues than not knowing how to properly use a plunger.

    Comment by wendykat — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 10:48 am

  22. Oh for the love… it was just motionless. DORK. Not foul. :P

    Comment by the insider — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 10:51 am

  23. so shall i quote you? “And it wasn’t just nondirty, it had been SITTING. It was STAGNANT.” which would lead me (and others) to presume you didn’t want to touch it because it was gross… so you admit that you are a freak and were weirded out by completely nonthreatening water.

    who’s the dork now huh?


    yea it’s still me but at least i am right!

    Comment by wendykat — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 11:23 am

  24. You should see how she is about running water.

    She hasn’t showered since the early years of the Reagan presidency.

    Comment by Grampa — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 1:08 pm

  25. was she even born in the early years of the reagan presidency?

    Comment by wendykat — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 1:54 pm

  26. It was a close thing, but yes, circa 1982.

    Comment by Grampa — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 1:59 pm

  27. hehehe…

    i love when we get to make fun of her before she notices.

    Comment by wendykat — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 2:34 pm

  28. I know I feel warm and fuzzy.

    In fact, I’m rubbing my belly right now.

    Comment by Grampa — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 2:43 pm

  29. Listen up asshats.. :P :P :P

    I noticed, but I’ve been BUSY.


    And I shower way more than you buddy.. and quit revealing my age.

    Comment by the insider — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 3:13 pm

  30. It’s Wendy’s fault, Pigpen. And I seriously doubt you shower more than I do. Once in the morning, once after the lunchtime workout, and once after lifting weights or before I go to bed.

    Comment by Grampa — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 3:46 pm

  31. Pigpen? Jerk. Ass.

    Comment by Grampa — Friday.June.16.2006 @ 4:22 pm

  35. Oh shut it buddy.
