I'm not sure I ever wrote about this before, but in the winter of 2011 our bathroom had two leaks coming from the ceiling. There was one leak coming through the vent thing over the tub (which convieniently dripped into the tub) and one through the light fixture beside the tub (which required a bucket). I quickly realized that the leak only came when I heard the upstairs neighbors using the toilet and then flushing. But the leak started dripping before the flush.
The audience hears the sound of the upstairs neighbor peeing.
Drips begin coming through ceiling at a rate of more than one per second.
Drips continue for a while, then slow to a stop.
Well. This morning the sound of running water woke me up.
It sounded loud and close. I was about to go back to sleep because I thought it was raining outside. (Of course, I didn't happen to think that it was probably below freezing outside and could not be raining.) Then in my grogginess, I realized it sounded like the rain was coming from my bathroom. Booboo and I went to go check on it.
And it was. It was raining in my bathroom, with leaks coming from the same exact two places. Only this time they are coming through my newly painted ceiling. There has been no damage yet, but if it's like last time there will be, and they will have to cut through the ceiling to get to the pipes, etc.
So. I think I am going to make myself a really good cup of coffee to recover from being woken up by pee-rain in my bathroom.
