Plumbing Blues Haiku

I woke up last night at 3:05 AM to the sound of my leaky toilet. I couldn't get back to sleep right away, and realized I had not yet written or even come up with a subject for today's post, so I composed this early morning haiku, for you:

Dripping through the night
Showering the dark with sound
Broken toilet dreams

I just fixed my "running toilet" ... changed the flapper and lowered the arm.
This was on Good Morn America ...

A couple couldn't figure out why their water bill was so high. Nothing was broken. The hubs was home from work ill and kept hearing something ... problem solved:

Watch this video, it is hilarious!

That video is hilarious....Thank you, Nancy!
I happen to have two cats....could that be part of my problem?


Me, You, or Ellie said...

That is one wack-o kitty.

Love your po-em, Beth.


Me, You, or Ellie said...

So, did you come up with the Haiku while lying awake listening to your toilet malfunction? That's funny...

Great video, Nancy


Me, You, or Ellie said...

Well, yes, yes I did, Jacquie.

I even scribbled it down on the back of a nearby receipt, although I of course forgot to bring it with me this morning, so recomposed it from memory here in the office.

Not much of a worse sound at night than running water in the house. Funny haiku!
