Oh Crap

We were getting ready to hose a large Christmas Eve get-together when we were suddenly faced with an overflowing cesspool. My then-husband thought he could snake it out himself and wound up cutting his hand. I had to take him to the emergency room for a tetanus shot. The lesson we learned? It doesn't matter how much it costs, there are times when you just pay the professional and shut up!
