Litany Against Plumbing

Plumbing is the mind-killer.

Plumbing is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my plumbing.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.

Where the plumbing has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain.

With a sump pump that works, hopefully. Otherwise we’re going to have to move.

    Good luck.

    Three rules of plumbing: water rolls downhill, payday is Friday, and don’t lick your fingers.
