Money Pit

I went into the bathroom
and lifted the toilet seat.

It almost came off
in my hand.

I thought, “Oh shit,
I live in a money pit.”

That’s just where my
thoughts went.

What if the roof goes next?
Or the HVAC unit?
The hot water heater?

These are the nightmares
of the suburban set.

“Oh shit.”

It starts with the toilet seat,
but it doesn’t end there.

The next thing you know,
it’s everything but the
kitchen sink, which, come
to think of it, could
use an update.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Money Pit.”
