Do you ever look at something and just wonder, “what the heck is that?” I had that experience today when I was looking through the phone book for a plumber to help me with my drainage issues. I was on page one hundred and thirteen when I saw an ad for a “strange wall photographer”, and I was just bewildered by the concept. I have so many questions. Why do people want photos taken of strange walls? Why would someone specialise in taking such photos? It’s just so confusing.
Anyway, it turns out that my phone wasn’t even working. I was in desperate need of a drain plumber, though, so I had to go on a massive hike to find one. Living in the mountains, there aren’t exactly many drain plumbers around here. Now, the scenery on my several-hour walk was incredible, but I’m more than a little tired. The road was really rough, so I’m quite sore from the big walk as well. Thankfully, though, I did manage to find a travelling plumber, which I didn’t even realise was a thing. He was willing to help me out for a small fee, as well, so it seems that this was my lucky day.
On the way back to my house, we passed a mountain goat, just chilling on an upright log. I thought that was a funny image that needed to be shared with the world, but unfortunately, I didn’t have a working phone. The expert on fixing blocked drains in the Fairfield area said he would have taken a photo, but he doesn’t believe in mobile phones. I guess that image will just have to remain in our heads forever. I’m sure you can just imagine it, though. If there’s one thing you take away from this blog post, I’d want it to be the image of the goat on a log that is way too small for it. When life throws everything at you, just make the most of your situation, even if that means you rest on a small log.
