Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

I love being a homeowner but what I don't love are household repairs. Yesterday, my toilet starting making a funny noise when I flushed it and when I took off the lid, water shot out at me.

I think it's my ballcock.

I really have no idea what it is. I just like saying ballcock.


Say it with me.



  1. "Ballcock!" There, I said it. Feels good. And I am SO with you. They always say it needs a man to do the household repairs. I AM a man, and all I can say is: "Yes, it needs a man. Another man, that is. Not me."

  2. Good grief girl. Ya usually have to grab it, Yank it a few times and its fixed, well for a while till it gets loaded again. But yours actually seemed a bit premature. Hate it when that happens.

  3. @Dieter,
    You're so funny!

    @Simply Suthern,
    I'm sensing some sexual undertones to your response..

  4. OMG, I laughed my ass off at Dieters comment. How HILARIOUS!!!!!

    And I have to agree!

    Anyway, here goes......"Ballcock!" fun. Just rolled off my tongue!



  5. Simply Suthern was pretty darn funny too!

  6. haha. working at a plumbing wholesaler there are quite a few that make me laugh. My favorite is Pet Cock. :)

  7. Wow, two of my favorite things put together in one word oh my.

    ballcock. purr...rolling off my tongue.

    I love Simply Sutherns reply....purr....I like a man who takes control and knows what to do!

    Unfortunately I looked it up on and it lost its sex appeal. Don't do it...



C'mon, you know you want to say it..
