A funny thing happened on the way to the funeral

In a scene straight from a Ben Stiller comedy, I accidently dropped part of a toliet paper holder into said toliet just as it was flushing. Bad enough anytime or anywhere, but I did it at my brother-in-law’s condo while there attending my mother-in-law’s funeral.  After a day of using the public restroom across the street (it was 8 degrees!) and dark looks from my long-suffering wife, the plumber arrived and gave the okay to use the toliet again — much to everyone’s relief. We can laugh about it now.

Rest in peace, Gerry. A story like this would have cracked her up. I know she is laughing at me from a better place.

    Thanks. She had some interesting life experiences, and I liked her a lot.

    I had no chance at getting it anyway! You know that shot that Luke took at the Death Star? Where he used the Force? It was like that…
