Company of 23 on Christmas Eve

Twas the night before Christmas, and all in the yard was a septic system gone south. Inside the house, the toilets were bubbling and bathtubs were gasping: Oh My! What could this be? Oh Poop! Not on Christmas Eve!

A company of 23 had settled there to be close and to celebrate the night before Christmas. Preparations in the kitchen were started. The lights on the tree were a delight. There was a rush for the many to potty. I thought there was going to be a fight.

A call was made for service to the tank as another bag of trash was closed up for the curb. As the stuff was sucked out, and plumbing became happy, we all sighed, “Oh, thank you. Thank you, Pumper Man on this glorious night.” The company sang and celebrated—drank and talked. If only others would know what just happened; if only the walls could talk.

A company of 23 had settled there to be close and to celebrate the night before Christmas. What a joy to share this time of year and all flushing done well. We will remember being close this holiday season and what a story we will tell. To all and to all, please flush and have a good night.

Merry Christmas!
