The Great Bathroom Disaster of 2013.

In this post: Naked cleanup, costumed kittens, percussion tap.

It began with a simple crash last night around 8 p.m. while I was in the study wasting time online and Sam was still unconscious in bed after working 44½ hours of overtime on Saturday and Sunday. I thought the noise came from the kitchen, such as dishes breaking or possibly crap falling off a pantry shelf, but after looking around for a few minutes we couldn’t figure out what happened. So I moved on to Plan B — what the hell, why not take a shower — and that’s when we discovered the disaster. There, on the floor of our shower stall in the master bath, were the remains of a large soap and shampoo dispenser (pictured below) that had vaulted to its death from the wall along with three quarts of slimy foaming goo on EVERYTHING.

Because I’ve got a variety of mobility issues that prevent me from crawling around in the shower, Sam volunteered to tackle the cleanup naked under running water with his feet, which was efficient, effective and amazingly entertaining.

And now for the highlight of today’s post! I’ve got a pair of YouTube videos guaranteed to make you smile unless there’s something seriously wrong with you. I mean, who doesn’t love kittens dressed like Tootsie Rolls and happy people tap dancing, am I right?

Sam is feeling much better today, in case you’re interested. He finally caught up on all the sleep he lost over the weekend and is presently on his way to Wal-Mart because we need things, including: 1) many kinds of cheese (cream, American and muenster); 2) a prescription refill; 3) shrimp egg rolls from the deli; 4) braunschweiger; 5) Coke Zero; and 6) a light bulb.

It’s good to be alive, isn’t it? Thank you for reading this.
