DIY 101

I was reading a post over at Musings of a Housewife and was reminded of the first home improvement project I undertook alone.  The wax seal on the toilet was leaking.  I did my research and knew it was a simple fix, so I prepped everything and then called a friend to lift the john itself from the floor.  We were doing this project late in the evening, in an interior bathroom.

The second my friend lifted the commode from the floor the room went black.  A quick check of the breakers revealed nothing, so we ventured outside and the entire neighborhood was dark.

“Wow, Frank*, you’re the worst plumber ever.”

*Not his real name.
