We attended a party for a friend of a friend. It was a family gathering so naturally we had the kids with us and not knowing the hosting couple, made Honey feel a little uncomfortable. Not me...what do I care? A party means lots of good food and usually lots of fun. Besides, we knew the people we went with, that's good enough for me.

Never having been in this home, I take a quick visual tour to locate all the important areas, the bathroom being one of them. Inevitability, one of the kids will wait to long, as to not miss any fun and there is always a mad dash. (endlessly hoping it isn't occupied)

The kids were off playing while Honey and I sat among 40 or so complete strangers shooting the breeze. I decided, I better relieve myself of some of the Fresca I had been downing before I have to make a mad dash. Luck would have it, occupied. Honey informed me that a man the size of a TANK just went in. Now, we are both sitting there watching and waiting. Finally he emerges, followed by an enormous dark, VERY smelly cloud. Crap! Literally. I now have to go in there. I remembered seeing a candle, so I took Honey's lighter with me to help ease the painful smell.

While in there, my mind wondered and I thought, "Man, imagine if the bowl suddenly stopped up?" I laughed to myself thinking, "Certainly FRESCA isn't going to cause a problem." I finish, pull myself together, flush and wash. I turned around and OMGosh, the bowl is PLUGGED!!! Now, I'm trapped in this stinky ass bathroom, in a home where I know no one, with a stopped up toilet. What am I going to do? Think, think, THINK! I wanted to close the light and run out but I couldn't. The bathroom was in the center of where we were gathered and a blue streak screaming out would have drawn way to much attention. So, I cracked the door and saw the friend we came with. I wave him over and told him what happen and to DO something and do it FAST. Apparently, he told the home owner, because she came and handed me a plunger. WHAT is THAT? I didn't do was TANK!! He should be in here, not me. I only deposited a little Fresca. Being the prefect party guest I am, I did it. But I'm telling you one thing, the next party I'm bringing this....

"Well, I don't use the toilet much to pee in. I almost always pee in the yard or the garden, because I like to pee on my estate."

that is SOOOOO uncool! I'm sorry, maybe it's me but I cannot imagine handing my guest a plunger. Whatever happened to , "oh, sorry it'll plug at the drop of a hat... go get some dip and a drink. I'll have it fixed up in a jiff."

If you have a party the people who show up are G.U.E.S.T.S.!

Thats funny. I think we've all been in the situation. Glad to know I'm not the only one. But us innocent ones always catch the blame.
But this was good bloggin' material. Love to get a laugh reading blogs during a busy day.

Oh My what a terrible situation to be in. I cant believe that the host gave you the plunger. She should of done it herself or gave it to the right person.

That was a crappy thing for the host to do.

Totally uncouth and rude. I hope her pipes need regular cleaning.

Or something like that.
