i had a rare chance to have a nice, quiet, relaxing bath last night…well…as relaxing as it can be for a 5 foot 10 inch tall woman taking a bath in a tub built for no one taller than 5 feet.
anyway, after my bath i noticed that i had a couple of toe nails that needed clipping.
am i really going to tell this story?
so i grabbed the honkin’ industrial sized toe nail clippers, perched my foot up on the toilet seat and proceeded to clip. i don’t usually clip my toe nails over the toilet…but for some reason it seemed like a good idea last night.
i can’t believe i’m actually telling this story!
so i was clipping away, when i lost my grip on the clippers. splash! they fell right to the very bottom of the toilet bowl!
oh, this is so embarrassing!
the unfortunate part was that i had peed in the toilet before getting the bright idea to clip my toe nails over said toilet…and i hadn’t flushed. why waste the water when i was going to want to flush my toe nail clippings after, right?
did i actually just write that? oh. my. God.
i just stood there and stared down into the toilet bowl. how the hell am i going to get them out? i’m not sticking my hand down there!
i sheepishly called hubby into the bathroom and showed him what had happened. he just looked at me with a grin on his face, shook his head and laughed. ya…this kind of thing happens to me all the time. i have a way of turning an ordinary task into a big event.
so hubby goes downstairs to find something to help with the extrication of the clippers while i went over the whole thing in my head….why would i clip my toe nails over the toilet when i had never done that before????
when hubby came back into the bathroom, he was carrying a pair of disposable chopsticks that had come with our last Chinese take-out meal. with a little ingenuity and some fancy chopstick acrobatics, he expertly pulled the clippers out of the toilet.
phfffft…..i’m such a tool.
anyone know how to properly sterilize toe nail clippers after they’ve been in a toilet bowl? ’cause i don’t think they’ll ever been clean enough for me!
