That Day. Just... Ugh.

Here's how you know you're in for a bad day. You wake up, and for whatever reason the water in your toilet is black and smells like sewer.  A flush solved that problem... I assume something somewhere backfilled... and I moved to take my morning shower.  And about halfway through, the head unit of the handheld shower fell off.  Completely detached from the hose... or, more correctly, the hose detached from the shower head, as the threaded end was still in place.  The hose just... broke.


I should have taken the hint.  I didn't.  I went to work.  And literally as I was walking in, the system died.  About 45 minutes later, it started to function again... fitfully, in jerks and spasms... but I wish it had stayed down, because it was serving us nothing but crap.  All day.  Nothing but crap claims, for eight stinkin' hours, crap claim upon crap claim.  I'm going to take a nap.  Then I'm going to install a new handheld shower.  Then, and only then, might have I have some dinner. Maybe.

I don't want to adult anymore.

UPDATE: The nap was four hours long.  It took 10 minutes total to remove the old shower head and put the new one on... mainly because the only pair of locking pliers I own these days could be used as a keychain.  Seriously... when it's locked down, I cannot get my thumb into the space in the "mouth."  When I purchased it from Amazon for another task, I thought locking jaw pliers, 4" meant the maximum space in the jaws, not the overall length.  Oh well, no matter... I has a shower again.  1235am... time for dinner!
