Today we get down to the nitty gritty - the subject for today's discussion is toilet seats. I'm sure you'll forgive me no pictures. Stay with me - it's worth it.
Our house is about 15 years old, and we have lived here for 7 years. For the last few months, Action Man and I have been using a broken toilet seat. The seat is solid wood, and it has come apart at the joins. No matter how much AM has tried, it refuses to be reglued. Needless to say, we sit down fairly gingerly. (ouch!)
So today I passed by a bathroom supply shop and made an unplanned stop to see about perhaps replacing said toilet seat. I wasn't too hopeful. The style is vintage, which was all the go in the mid 90s. Now the style is all sleek modern lines.
But miracle of miracles - this shop had the exact same toilet suite --and the exact same seat!
I asked the assistant for help.
"Those seats are really expensive you know"
I thought, oh yeah, how expensive can a toilet seat BE?
Readers - this is how expensive. $643.00. 6-4-3. Six hundred and forty three dollars.
I burst out laughing.
Needless to say, we will be gingerly sitting for a while yet.
