My wife, Julie, had been after me for several weeks to varnish the wooden
seat on our toilet. Finally I got around to doing it while Julie was out shopping.
After finishing I left to take care of another matter before she returned.
She came home and prepared to take a shower. Before getting in the shower
she got undressed and then sat on the toilet. As she tried to stand up she
realized that the not-quite-dry epoxy paint had glued her to the toilet seat.
About that time I got home and realized her predicament. We both pushed and
pulled without any success whatsoever. Finally in desperation I undid the toilet
seat bolts. Julie wrapped a sheet around herself and I drove her to the hospital
The ER Doctor got her into a position where he could study how to free her
(Try to get a mental picture of this.). Julie tried to lighten the embarrassment of
it all by saying, “Well, Doctor, I’ll bet you’ve never seen anything like this before.”
The Doctor replied, “Actually I’ve seen lots of them… ……….
I just never saw one mounted and framed.”
