Decadent days

Monday, Wednesday or Saturday

The cleaning lady usually comes in on Wednesday or Monday. This week she came in on Saturday.
This evening my toilet stopped flushing. To be more precise the handle broke off.
In my more decadent days I would have gone to a nearby hotel. But since it is still possible to flush the toilet – by manually releasing the water – I decided to stay home and take a bath.
