more than you need to know, but...

my shower drain has a devil baby gestating inside of it. that is, in my mind, the only explanation why it remains clogged after pouring drano down it every day for an entire week.

rather than fight it, i have given up.

i now shower with water to my ankles, but today i threw in a pink rubber ducky and call it a sh'bath.

go ahead. judge me.

What ever happened to the "invest in my chest"?

Is it a done deal?

Sarah, you should be posting more than your drain today. I want to know how the movie went with birthday Ryan. Not to sound uncompassionate about your drain problem but there are other things to be addressed today.

Try another brand than Drano.

Aimee said...

There's a contraption called "ZIP IT" or something... it's very similar to a deadly weapon and could beused as such if needed. It is essentially a long plastic rod with "Teeth" on it that you stick into your drain and then pull out... the teeth grab the devil baby and all of its entrails, etc. and drag it out, then you throw it away. It's quicker than drano, no chemicals to worry about... but... You do have to actually look at the remains of your devil baby which might not be super pleasant.

Chemicals like Drano can corode pipes and will cause further and future damage.
Go with a drain snake (like Zip It, that was just mentioned) and root and abort that devil baby.
Then fling it out and try and hit a passing car with it.

You're going to have to zip it. It's going to be so gross. Wear gloves, and goggles, and maybe some kind of mask.

Hey hey, it was just a movie, no 'official' date. (cool movie too)

But from the 'other Ryan's' side, it was fun! .. Sarah did raz me about being a jerk in a couple previous comments (rightly so). .. I tried to think of something column worthy, but I suck. At the whole 'social' thing.


Pete Dunn said...

Yeah, basically, if the Drano isn't working then that means, um... the Drano isn't working. It might be time to sleep with a plumber and get that drain cleared, if you know what I mean.

Also Drano is how you you say, "hard on" backwards.

I wish I were the bubbles in little Sarah's tub.

Can you just imagine the special places I could rub.

Did you try a plunger? I know, it's a stupid question, but for a long time, I didn't know that a plunger could be used on something other than a toilet.

Cute pink rubber ducky.

If you have a drain with 2 small screws on the sides loosen them and below you will find a small hair ball about the size of a small cat. Take a clothes hanger unwind and with a small hook grab the cat & pull, cover nose & mouth before throwing up or gagging, what ever you do, don't let it drip on you. For a grande, 2 pump mocha, you may talk me into it.

anon: i can't post it, what if i want to write a column about it. besides, ryan replied to you.

aimee: um, i need a boy for that. i am not good with entrails of any kind. though, it sounds nice to have around in case of a burglar.

superhero: why does everyone but me know about a 'zip it'??

anon: i don't do gross. i'm a princess.

ryan: you deserve to be teased. that's what i do best.

pete: um, no. have you ever seen a hot plumber? i didn't think so.

stupid, fat retarded person: i'm sure you're not any of those, but just in case please don't get in my tub ;)!

sofi: pmk said the same thing. i'm going to buy one tonight. i can't bring myself to use the zip thing, it sounds too gross for me.

anon: deal. i'd even buy you a treat too!!

sarahbellum said...

crap i forgot you jen! sorry.

yeah, the duck is totally cute. wonder who gave it to me???

I'll deal with the small cat in your drain, no treat required. I will require a zip lock bag to dispose of the hair ball. The only reason I even suggested taking on the assignment was to releive a princess from such a messy chore, we'll make arrangements soon, the thought of your feet in that water is tuning my stomach.
