While much of America was watching the Super Bowl last night I was wrestling with an unplugable Toto toilet....that was mysteriously plugged. Not totally - but periodically. Like every second person who used it had a serious overflow issue. The good news was that the pattern was consistent enough to demonstrate that there was something acting like a 'valve' rather than a 'plug' so before tearing the dratted thing off it's bolts and snaking the pipe I stuck my hand in and recovered a plastic princess teacup. All in all a good answer to the dilemma - and another successful plumbing job completed without professional assistance. High five (once I wash my hands) to all you mamas who simply do what has to be done today!
