My apartment flooded
Last week was one of the craziest weeks in my life.
First of all, my apartment flooded. See, I live on the ground floor of a townhouse in Manhattan and, prior to my buying it, my pad would flood every so often.
But once I bought it, my buddy and I spent the first few months trying to figure out how to solve the issue. We did.
For well over 15 years, it’s never flooded. Not even close. Then, last Thursday – during that crazy freak thunderstorm – it did. Worse than I’d ever seen it before.
Four sets of plumbers later, it turns out that a rock somehow got into our system. The plumber wasn’t able to remove it but did manage to blast out all the debris around the rock so that the water would/could flow freely again.
At some point next summer, I’m gonna have to have someone cut into my wall, cut out a piece of pipe, remove the rock, replace the pipe, replace the wall, and get the whole thing repainted.
Home ownership isn’t at all what it’s all cracked up to be.
That’s only part of the week but no sense in telling you everything all at once.
On a different point entirely, it was Lviv’s birthday the other day so I invited her over to eat – Vietnamese again because I honestly don’t think there’s anything better when the weather’s hot.
Also got her a small cake/huge cupcake.
All-in-all, it was pretty nice. Well, that is until we settled down to watch a film.
For what it’s worth, I assume no one ever means, “duck.”
