Toilet Needs a New Home

I posted this ad on Craigslist a few years ago. A friend of mine asked me to repost it on the blog, so here it is:

It is time that Toilet parted ways with our family. It has been in this house for longer than we’ve been here. When we arrived, the home inspector informed us that this toilet was “top of the line” in Europe and ordered by all the best home designers in the US. “Pozzi Gnorri,” he said. “Go look them up on the internet. They’re one of the best companies in the world for bathroom fixtures.” So I did and was duly impressed. However, I had to wonder what a toilet of this caliber was doing in my little bungalow in Portland. But hey, some of us get riches to rags instead of the other way around, so who was I to question things or to remind Toilet of its brilliant beginnings? I could make Toilet sad thinking that way.

Toilet was lovely; a deep, thoughtful blue, with a white lid. And the flusher was in its top! My 8 year old loved that. Look Mom, you pull this button on top rather than pushing down on a handle! Fancy!

  1. In two parts it makes a lovely planter and mr sink a wonderful bird bath, mine does not flush but has two sprinklers and the bird bath gets full with one as well, I no longer care if it overflows, people like the plunger still on the side with the passion vine, the conversations changed…its all yes sir now, no longer in charge, dental floss is used in the orchids baskets and a roll of plastic bags looks like a role of paper the used to be next to it, now suspended from a fence. Now have the mighty have fallen since we lost this thrown, but I think its happier without all that pressure, to preform, and its friends of a higher class a few cardinals, seldom need its help. But were all happy to be togetter. If you need help setting it up let me know, I’m an engineer and master gardner, kind of a plumber of all trades. Please feel free to use any idea contained here. By the way my stuff is in your home and car by law.
