Yeah, I bet that title took you for a bit of a loop, huh? But for real, bro, I have some obstructive plastic wedged down deep in the hole of my bowl- and to be quite frank, it's a massive pain in the a$$.

This all started last night as we were getting ready for bed around 9:30 or so. My wife, Keri, and I had just finished an episode of Schitts Creek and were going to brush our teeth and hit the hay. Well, I noticed upon entering the bathroom that there were some black streaks in the toilet bowl from hard water mineral deposits. I can't have that. It must be cleaned promptly.

I got my toilet scrubber thingy out and my Clorox toilet bowl cleaner. The way the cleaner works is you loosen the cap about half a turn which then allows the blue solution to squirt out of the end into the bowl. Everything was going swimmingly, until it wasn't.

Maybe I was a little too aggressive with my grip on the jug, but somehow I managed to shoot the cap of the toilet bowl cleaner off into the water and, before I could reach in and grab it, it sank to the bottom of the toilet and into the hole. When this happened I really weighed my options out to try and figure out what my best course of action would be. The cap isn't overly large and, in comparison to other items that have been flushed down my john, I thought maybe it would just go down on its own. Naturally I immediately flushed the toilet to test my hypothesis. Turns out I was wrong.

So now here I am and it's the next day. My upstairs toilet still won't flush and I still can't get the cap back out of the pipes. I can't even see it for that matter. I'm now getting ready to head to Hussey's General Store here in my hometown of Windsor. After all, if they don't have it, I don't need it. I'm gonna pick up one of those thumb button snakey grabbey things and see if I can retrieve this mischievous little object out of my hole.

I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, please enjoy this random photo gallery of my family bowling in Augusta.
