On the long list of things I am not good at, is a line marked “home repairs.” I have a two-step plan to fixing a clogged drain, and normally, if my two-step plan fails, the drain stays clogged.
Isaac’s Two-Step Plan
1. Pour Drain-o down the pipes.
2. Pour more Drain-o down the pipes.
Today, I was home sick and my bathroom drain was clogged. For whatever reason, I found myself thinking outside the two-step plan. So I took apart the sink, and cleared out the clog. In a really simple, any-idiot-could-do-it way, I stepped into a very slightly larger world.
A really gross world. Goddamn, the crap that ends up in a drain is disgusting. Next time I stick with Drain-o.
