I need to confess something.
I feel so so so awful about this...
This afternoon, after I used the restroom in my dorm, the toilet got clogged.
I was so flustered that I tried flushing it again, but nothing happened.
I walked across the street to Wal-Mart and bought a plunger.
Then I walked back.

whether it's #1 or #2.)
I'm so embarrassed about it...
...so I had to confess it here....
We can't use the toilet until it gets fixed. We have to go to the lobby to use the
Things are kind of a mess... and I'm sure my roommate is still shaken up.
I feel like such an awful, awful person...

...I'm so sorry.
