Lesson Learned...

Last week I went shopping with one of my sisters and I bought a pair of earrings that I adored and a Buddha candle. I looooved those earrings so much that as soon as I walked into my apartment I went to my bathroom mirror to try them on and dropped one right down the uncovered drain in my bathroom sink. My sister thought I should try to open the pipes to get it out, but I opted not to. I’m quite certain that if you try to open the pipes to retrieve an earring the same day you bought them AND a Buddha candle, you’ve missed the point.

I like your conclusion! Perhaps the Buddha Candle should sit near the sink in the future to always remind you to close the drain!

I'm waiting for the day I drop my contacts or my wedding ring down the drain. My bathroom drain doesn't have a cover - hasn't for years, so I usually just wing it and pray that nothing falls. Think I'm jinxing myself?

Well, I defintiely hope that I haven't jinxed you! So I guess the best way to unjinx yourself might be to get a drain cover...of course i still don't have one, but that is just in case I need to learn another lesson.

I've fetched jewelry out of pipes from under the sink and learned this lesson: after seeing how the jewelry looks when it comes out, you might not want to wear it.

Love the blog!

Please keep the buddha candle away from the drapes, SG. Impermanence is zen and all unless taken too far.

Yes, perhaps a drain cover would be the smart thing to do....
