What you really want to happen when you have a Christmas hangover and it’s just above freezing is for a pipe in an outside toilet to split and fire a jet of ice cold water all over the place.
What you also want is to forget that there is a stop tap in the house and so try to fix it with the jet of water still spraying out directly in your face like some sort of sadistic winter crowd control method, eventually ending up as if you’d jumped in a river of freezing cold water and are absolutely soaked to the bone.
Then and only then will you remember the stop tap and turn off the water…. Oh and you want to be on a water meter as well… Good times.
Anyway, seaons greetings and a Happy New Year to everyone! Hope 2011 is fabulous.
