Shall we call them "hot flushes?"
"Long story short. Toilet lift arm broke. Unusable for two weeks. I asked my husband to pleeeeease fix it. Came home to this... a giant hook in the wall and a bungee holding up the lift arm. Brilliant. All I need is a new husband and I'm good to go."
Let this be a warning to all of you non-toilet fixing husbands out there! Don't be naughty! Fix that potty!
