This Friday evening after the funeral I feel like some humour, so here is some at my own expense. Ok, not funny, just a silly old man.
R for a birthday present once bought me a nose and ear hair trimmer/body shaver. You change the heads on the unit. I use the ear and nose hair trimmer but I still pluck as well. My plucking is better really. Yes, I do use the body hair trimmer, but only for area the down below. I like a neat bush, or little bush really.
I had the unit stuck up a nostril and I wondered how often it should get oil. It came with a little oil bottle. I must google that, I thought. Perhaps I should take it apart and shake out any hair? I did. A bit of the appliance fell in the basin. Oh, I think I saw something go down the drain plug. The main bit had fallen out and could have gone down the drain, but it didn't, but what if I am right and a saw one little part go down the drain? As soon as any water goes down the plug hole, it will wash through. I need to check now.
I looked under the unit. Ok, this is where the water level sits in the drain. I will remove the pipes and there will be a little water spillage, so I will put a face washer underneath. I loosened the plastic rings off and then undid them. The water was was absorbed by the face washer.
I never use the plug for the basin, but I do have one and so I put it in the plug hole and tipped the contents out into the basin. This sounds simple but it was an senior citizen getting up and and down from the floor. Thankfully there was no spare bit of unit. I reassembled the hair trimming unit and it still worked fine.
Then what did I do? Well, the water from the drain pipe was bit manky and so I lifted out the plug and ran some tap water to rinse the residue away.
And the drain pipe was still sitting on top of the vanity unit. While it wasn't a bad flood, a towel was needed.
