Usually things go down the toilet. Last night the tables turned.
I awoke at 1:00 to a massive “crash” outside. The sound seemed so close, just outside our window. I was terrified that our mahogany tree had come down and hit Lucy’s house, but I looked all around the compound, and found everything as it should be.
In the morning I walked just outside our compound to find our neighbours’ pit toilet collapsed on the ground. It was 15 years old, and made from mud bricks. I had a few earthquake members flash through my mind, but luckily no-one was inside. They’ve already started digging a new pit. I don’t want to know where they’ll go in the meantime!
Usually things go down the toilet. This time the toilet went down.

Probably best not to stand too close to your mahogany tree “in the meantime”!
True story haha. I think its pretty solid though, I hear mahogany is pretty solid 😉
