Consider the Bullet Dodged- At Least For Now

So apparently our hastily erected shrine to the gods of leaky pipes worked.

The bad news is that the plumber had to cut the bottom and back out of our bathroom vanity, as well as jackhammer a bit of slab in order to reach the offending pipe.

The good news is that it was just reachable, and he was able to fix it.

The even better news is that because he is a personal friend of Hubba-hubba's, he only charged us one hundred bucks.

I told Hubba-hubba that the leaky-pipe gods liked my offering of lemon cookies better than his turkey jerky. I mean, who wouldn't?

GREETINGS LOWLY EARTHLING, I AM A LEAKY PIPE GOD. YOU CAN CALL ME 'FRANK'. THERE ACTUALLY FIVE OF US BUT THE OTHER FOUR ARE LAZY, ASS SLACKERS. IT'S A BIG PROBLEM FOR PEOPLE WITH LEAKY PIPES.

LET ME JUST SAY THAT LEMON COOKIES ARE CERTAINLY BETTER THAN TURKEY JERKY. LEAKY PIPE GODS ARE PARTIAL TO BAKED GOODS (THIS IS A WELL KNOWN FACT TO ANYONE WHO HAS EVER DONE LEAKY PIPE GOD RESEARCH). AS A RESULT, YOU NOW HAVE A FIXED LEAKY PIPE! IN THE FUTURE I SUGGEST YOU TRY GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE, BOSTON CREAM PIE AND FOR THOSE REALLY HARD TO FIX LEAKS, NEW YORK STYLE CHEESECAKE. AND NOW, I MUST GO FIX OTHER LEAKY PIPES! AWAYYYYYYY!

Is that for real or did someone sneak crack into my cornflakes this morning?
hahah. Too funny!

O merciful and benevolent Frank! I humbly offer my thanks for your intervention, despite the lack of heavy-duty baked goods.

Rest assured that if cakes are your thing, your next shrine will consist of the entire bakery department!

I WILL ACCEPT YOUR HUMBLE THANKS AND, OF COURSE, ANY BAKED GOODS YOU HAVE TO OFFER. ALL THE LEAKY PIPE GODS LOVE BAKED GOODS EXCEPT FOR MURRAY. HE PREFERS SHRUBBERY. HE SAW THAT IN A MOVIE ONE TIME AND NOW HE THINKS IT'S JUST A HOOT TO WANT SHRUBBERY. JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME, MURRY SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ELEVATED TO GOD STATUS BUT HIS UNCLE IS ONE OF THE GODS OF UNEVEN PICTURE HANGING.

THERE ARE MANY LEAKY PIPES IN THE WORLD AND SO NOW I'M MUST BE OFF! AWAYYYY!

Oh Leaky Pipe God - can you please send me the Messy House God? I'll bake her a cake, I'll even stop at that fancy french bakery for a fine selection of delectable goodies! Just send her to my house to work her wonders.... PLEASE!!!

Leaky Pipe God said...

DEAREST HEATHER, OH LOWLY HUMAN THAT YOU ARE, I AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU THAT THE MESSY HOUSE GOD IS NOT A SHE...IT IS A HE. HENCE THE REASON FOR YOUR MESSY HOUSE. I BELIEVE HE IS OUT RIGHT NOW PLAYING TEXAS HOLD 'EM WITH THE TYPO GODS. HEDONISTS!

AND JUST FOR FUTURE REFERENCE, THE MESSY HOUSE GOD REQUIRES EIGHT 50-INCH PLASMA SCREEN TVS AND A BIG LEATHER COUCH WITH RECLINING SEATS AND HIDDEN CUP HOLDERS. THE MESSY HOUSE GOD IS A DEMANDING BASTARD.

AND NOW....MORE LEAKY PIPES. AWAYYYY!
