I Always Drop Things Down the Toilet
Sat, Feb 19 § 4 Comments
I don’t think of myself as a clumsy person so it’s pretty surprising when I always find myself accidentally dropping little hair products down the toilet bowl. I would be fixing my hair in front of the mirror, which is above the sink, which is next to the toilet, which I’m not facing at all so I have no idea how the next thing happens, when suddenly, something flies and plops right into the toilet. It’s quite frustrating, because I drop only the things I use the most. Also, I hate having to get it out. I’d very much rather flush the item down, but having a clogged toilet is worse. Darn.
I’ve lost my beloved brown hair tie, a few black bobby pins, my only red hair clip, and a black comb, all which I had to pick out using a pair of chopsticks. (Just hold a bag in one hand, skillfully pick the item with the chopsticks with your other hand, then swiftly put the item in the bag and toss it in the trash. Make sure you throw away the chopsticks too — you don’t want to mix up the been-in-the-toilet-chopsticks with eating chopsticks!)
Today, I was using my gray comb (which is the black comb’s replacement) when I suddenly came upon a knot in my hair. I lost my grip on the comb and it almost flew into the toilet. I was so shocked, I felt like I had a mini heart attack, and I would be completely annoyed if I had to pick something out the toilet bowl again. But good thing the comb was still hanging onto my hair. Phew.
That was the only time I was glad my hair’s so nappy.
