This thing with the moat is getting way less fun. It was actually only fun in the first place because I could go around saying I have a moat! And that has about eight seconds worth of appeal.
ANYhoodle, 98% of this story will involve poop, so if that offends you you should probably turn away now. Still here? Ok. So since this started we've been all, Should we be doing laundry, should we be running the dishwasher, but we assumed they would tell us if we shouldn't because we live upstairs. But today they turned the water off without telling us, so after I unwittingly wasted my only flush on a pee, I took a huge poo and had no way of dealing with it. Also, I had to pee again.
A surprising number of people recommended peeing in the moat, which, guys, it is AROUND MY HOUSE. Besides which, I already sort of inadvertently did that yesterday.
So I mentioned how one of the guys knocked a hole in a ground pipe so that the pipe had a little skylight, through which we could watch our toilet-flushings flush, right? Ok so yesterday I took a poo and then peeked out the window just to check seriously I don't watch every time I flush. But it's a lucky thing I did this time, because apparently they had unhooked a pipe in preparation for fixing it but then did not fix it and a bunch of water came rushing out of the pipe onto the ground and I'm pretty sure my poops were in it.
Luckily, there were no dudes around at that time, and somewhere during that day they fixed the pipe (probably because they found poops in the moat). But surriously, I am too old for these sorts of adventures.
