Always Remember the Silver Lining

When you suddenly notice bad vibes coming from your bathroom drain
exorcism1

and you realise it has been possessed by a demonexorcism2

so you hire an old priest and a young priest

exorcism3

to perform an exorcism

exorcism4

and it works, but both priests are killed in the attempt

exorcism5

and you have to make a satisfactory explanation of the bodies to cops who are already suspicious about a drain-related death in the area

exorcism6

and then you realise that the whole day is gone, you didn’t get around to any of the things you meant to and being an adult kind of sucks.

But then you remember you are allowed to buy and drink wine and you feel a bit better.

    You know what they say… the key to good health is getting plenty of exorcism…

    You referenced Monty Python and the Exorcist. Nicely done!

      I did! I suppose it’s an odd combination, but it seemed right.

    As far as I’m concerned, all drains are just a horror movie waiting to happen. I mean, haven’t these cops ever seen “It”?

      Apparently not. But maybe I can submit it as evidence.

      Yep! And there are plenty of fellow suspicious people (and/or students) hanging out in the cheap wine isle.

    I had this happen to me just the other day – but it was the garbage disposal!! Thank you for sharing your experience! :D

      No worries! I hope your garbage disposal incident wasn’t too traumatic, or at the very least didn’t involve dead bodies.

      Just as long as it isn’t still in my bathroom drain.

    I love this, so funny!! Thanks for following my art blog too. BTW did you know that exorcisms are really on the rise? For example, I heard officials in Mexico brought in exorcists to try to heal the country of gang activity, and I’ve seen some other news on exorcisms. I though that was pretty fascinating. Long live Linda Blair!

      Glad you like it. I did not know that exorcisms are getting popular again! That’s really interesting. Now I want to find out about that.

    Ahhh okay you are one of my favorite people. Or is it persons? I don’t know, my grammar is terrible. But you rock in any case- this is so random and hilarious- although the drain bit is terrifying- to this day I refuse to clean out drains, they are just too horrifying. Anyhow, sorry to hear about you losing a day dealing with drains, demons, and homicides- I feel your pain. Oh wait, I probably shouldn’t admin that out loud…. er….

      Don’t admit to anything! I’m pretty sure they’re watching my communications waiting for my to drop the demon story and incriminate myself.

      I managed to avoid drain cleaning right up until this point. Probably because until now I either resided with responsible adults (obviously this doesn’t include myself) or moved rentals quite regularly and left my drain hair-demons to the next tenants.

        So that WAS your place I rented after you left!! Don’t worry though by the time I left the hairball was so massive it had created a life of it’s own and just wandered out the front door one day.

          I think that’s probably the best way to deal with hair-drains. Just wait for them to become sentient and leave of their own accord.

    In my opinion, ALL demons should quote Monty Python.

      People would probably be more receptive to possession if they did.

    I once started a drain-demon exorcism company but I had to shut down because the turnover rate was too high. Not for the usual ‘too-many-people-quitting’ reasons, but because too many people died. Plus the life insurance fees were extraordinary.

      I imagine the paperwork would have been a pain too.

        It was. We eventually had to start ‘filing’ it in the shredder.
