Brush teeth. <You need to put toothpaste on your brush.>
Open cupboard. Take toothpaste. Unscrew toothpaste. <The cap rolls into the sink. Thereís no strainer, and the cap rolls right into the drain, getting stuck.>
Take comb. Fiddle with comb. Try to push out cap with comb. <The cap gets pushed in deeper, and is now completely stuck.>
Open water drain below sink. Push with comb from below. <Your comb is too short.>
Close water drain. Go to storeroom. Take vacuum cleaner. Take off big suction part. <Itís stuck>.
Pull very hard on big suction part. <Itís stuck>.
Call girlfriend. Tell girlfriend to stand on big suction part. Pull very hard on big suction part. <It comes off>.
Use vacuum cleaner to suck toothpaste cap out of drain. <The cap comes out>.
Put cap on toothpaste. Put toothpaste on toothbrush. Brush teeth. <Your teeth are brushed.>

Thanks to a childhood filled with adventure games, I could solve the problem of the cap in the drain!

I swear I just dropped my cap into the sink several days ago too.  Unlike you, I just said "Funk dat!", and called it a day.

That was pretty great, Rocketman, but mundane.  Now, if you had combined, say, gum with cat hair and the rotting finger of George Washington to get it out, that would have been impressive!  icon_wink

That's like blaming owls because I suck at making analogies.

There's an iphone game where you put it your daily to-do list and it converts it to an  rpg, assigning experience for completed tasks, leveling you up and awarding you loot. don't recall the name though.
