THIS IS NOT FAKE NEWS
I have heard of reptiles and other things popping up through toilets, sinks and drains but never a hand– but a hand DID make an appearance in my shower. I know — I know you think I am a liar, crazy or delusional at best. That may or may not be true but the fact is a hand really did visit my bathroom..
Perhaps I should start at the beginning. A few weeks ago after a guest showered in the auxiliary washroom, I received frantic calls from the property manager and the owners of the condo one floor down. Water was dripping through their potlights into their shower. After visits from plumbers and maintenance people it was determined that the problem arose from corrosion and leaking of my drain pipe at the site of attachment to the piping connecting the two showers.
To rectify the situation a plumber using a special tool removed the drain before going to my downstairs neighbours where he proceeded to reconnect a new drain pipe to the existing piping, This was accomplished through a large hole cut in their ceiling.
I happened to walk past my washroom and saw what looked like wriggling worms coming out of the drain. On closer inspection it was wiggling fingers. I went to get my I pad to take a picture because I figured nobody would believe me. However when I returned the fingers attached to the hand had disappeared.
I am assuming and hopeful that the hand belonged to the plumber. However since this incident I have been having nightmares about hands floating through the air. Hands here, hands there hands everywhere- some clapping, some waving, some pulling my hair. Maybe if I wish really hard I can convert the nightmares into dreams where the hands learn to cook and clean and do laundry,
