31 Days of Writing: Day Four "Wild Card"

Since I get to make up my own prompt today, I thought I would share last night's adventures. Be forewarned: the subject of this adventure is a toilet.

The Little Toilet That Dripped

When Bek moved out to her Very Own Grown-Up Home, she felt very grown up indeed.

Change a light bulb? It only takes one Bek to change a light bulb.

Replace the smoke detector and batteries? Stand clear.

Buy a broom? Stick that sucker in the closet.

Re-seal the grout in the showers? Watch out.

Fix the toilet that drips? Um....Dad!

So Bek's dad kindly showed her the ways of the toilet, and just when the water was ready to be turned on, there was a CRACK from the toilet and a "CRAP!" from her dad.

A washer was weak; Dad was strong; the toilet was torn between the two. And so it cracked in three directions.

Bek and Dad made a phone call and a new toilet is on its way. Little Toilet That Drips, it's been real and it's been fun, but it ain't been real fun.
