And No, I Will Not Be Planting Flowers in Them

toilets on deck


There you go.   The height of class has got to be having two toilets on your back deck.  Never fear, they really are headed to the dump on Saturday, despite all of the wonderful advice I received to use them as flower planters or fish bowls or what have you.  In my humble opinion, that is taking the whole reduce-reuse-recycle thing a little bit too far.  And for the record, I wouldn't wish either of these toilets on anybody, innocent as they seem out there on the deck.  The one is probably 50 years old.  I think it's seen its life's usefulness, don't you?

And now I must go finish pulling up all the bright orange carpet that is in my foyer so that I can get nice neutral carpet installed today.

  7. We need to get new toilets too. We replaced the seats when we moved in, but I'm pretty sure they are original to the house (which was built in 1962). Pretty gross to think about really.

  8. Once when I was in HS my friend's family was remodeling their bathroom. They gave me the toilet. We started Toilet tag. It went from house to house to house. Each time with a different scenario. It was awesome. Can't imagine why you wouldn't want to play toilet tag. :)

    But now that you mention it, a 50 year old toilet is pretty gross. Blech.
