Ode to the Commode!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Carlson Properties 325-721-2429 0528582

It was an unplanned event the purchase of a new commode.

    There's no stimulus funds that I am aware of for cracked commodes or cracked pots to use the vernacular.   I was all on my own this time.  The decision to invest in a new pottie was made when the plumber gave me the bad news that the commode  was cracked, now you know the origin of the expression an old crack pot.  

I was dismayed to say the least,

all the carefully planned dollars  for a little budgeted staging bling or at least gasoline for the car for a quick trip to see the Alva farm  went into the commode literally. The money was gone to a pot and and a few other plumbing repairs.  If I get really desperate, I think I will ask a plumber for a loan!


There is an up side to this flushing story that may leave some of you blushing.

    My new commode is smaller than the old commode.  My new commode is shinier than the old commode.  Now here's the blushing part, the new commode has stylish curves with contemporary flair. My shiny new commode demanded a new stylish black and white shower curtain from Target for anybody who REALLY wants to know. The inspiration was awe inspiring.  I put a live green plant and a basket of rolled white towels in this bathroom.  I now have a STAGED Bathroom!


On to the best features! 

     The new commode is not only smaller, whiter and shinier,  it doesn't gurgle and is a quiet non assuming toilet.  Best of all it flushes quickly and efficiently and has yet to have any hangups if  you know what I mean.  Then best of all for living in dry West Texas, my toilet uses less water and I think that means I am more green or at least my friends sould be more green with envy. 


This is my ode to my new commode. Long live this commode!

WOW.  I have toilet-envy.  Mine's a "growler" and a "gurgle-er" and a "sometimes-flusher".

You're a poet and you don't know it! Too funny Beverly - I love some of your rhymes.  Who knew a toilet could be so inspirational.  Actually I put in the high toilets - and I *love* them - almost makes my heart sing! Sometimes I feel like I'm in kindergarten when I come across the short version.

Tom,  I laughed out loud.  sorry about your "growler" and "gurgle-er" and "sometimes-flusher"

LIz,  a "poet and you dont' know it"  too funny.

Another great feature of this commode is that it made me laugh writing this    blog and your comment!
