My tub faucets look like cupcakes covered in caulk icing but I've finally stopped the leak from my bathtub that was dripping into my living room. To prove to you people that I have no shame, I herewith post pictures of my grotesque caulking work as well as a pic of my bathroom complete with a can of Febreeze on the little white cabinet above the toilet.

I was also going to post a picture of the horrendous work I did on the disgusting drain in the tub but I had to draw the line somewhere. I fully intended to do a picture-perfect caulking job but, after the fifth unsuccessful attempt at covering every possible orifice of the tub that might have been causing the leak, I didn't give a crap anymore and just started squeezing that poor little tube like a caulk crazed maniac. It may have been the fumes.

I guess I better keep my day job.

Well if my insurance people never call me back you can come caulk my roof. That would be a lot of caulking since I'm not sure exactly all the places its leaking.

Baby sis

Um, Laurie, I don't know about that. Might still be leaking inside the walls. Can't you romance a plumber?

Bridget Jones said...

Brave lady, you. This was my first but not last trip to your blog. Try that white (Teflon) tape in place of the caulking. It's what the plumbers use and takes much less skill than caulk.

Hey I got divorced in '83...Bridg

Abby Taylor said...

Is it just me, or does that look a little bit erotic?

I know... I know... Don't answer that.

Bonnie - The more caulk, the more fumes I get to sniff.

Old Horsetail - Romance a plumber? I suppose I could try, just for the sake of the plumbing and all.

Bridget - Sounds like we have a lot in common. I'll have to try that plumber's tape if things start leaking again. Thanks for the tip. Welcome to the party!

Lorna - You see beauty in everything don't you?!

Tanda - Power to the feeble!

Abby - Did you take your meds today? Not the Viagra, the other one.
