A Shitty Day

Today, November 19, is International Toilet Day. I know because my toilet stop working completely. A previous tenant apparently had thrown too many condoms down the toilet. Also, my neighbor’s toilet had problems and an outside pump, pumping the sewage to the main line also had to be replaced. All in all it was a pretty shitty day. The Talmud, two thousand years ago trying to define the meaning of a Good Thing says, after considering the Torah, or woman as a Good Thing finally decides, and all agree, a Good Thing is a toilet because when you need a toilet, it is a good thing when you find a toilet. Happy toilet day to all the plumbers and others who derive their livelihood from shit.
