... and then came the flood

How long can a girl with a head cold tidy up the house before noticing the kitchen sink is overflowing? Seriously, I'd like to know. I don't even remember turning the taps on, though I do have a vague recollection of thinking dang, I'd better not leave these dishes till morning.

It was definitely long enough to

fill the sink

and spill water in smooth sheets over the side of the counter

and down the cabinet doors

and into the cabinets

and onto the floor

and along the floor to the stove

and down through the seams of the floor to the basement

and out through a ceiling light

and down to the floor there

with enough force to splatter the side of the sofa

which was soaked by the time I noticed.

Solution: Towels, a big Tupperware bowl to catch the drips, and Time. More naps are in order too, yes?
