So before leaving seatt, i stopped by my old friend (from kindergarten), eran meggido's house for a quick chat.
Like any smart traveler, i used the bathroom before i left for the airport.
Thing is, the toilet backed up.
I paused before going upstairs.
'uh, eran, there's no easy way to tell you this, but i am afraid your toilet is clogged.'
He was a good sport about it (apparently it was a known problem, but he forgot to mention it, and yes, his wife properly berated him for doing so.)
Embarrassing moment mostly averted.
I am emailing from my mobile device, sorry for any typos or brevity.
