It’s like a box of chocolates, you never know you’re going to get broken drain plug casing. After peeling back layers of silicon thinking I would find the need for a crush washer, I found the casing that holds the drain plug is broken out. How does one even break that piece? You see that tall piece of metal on the right of the plug? That is there to protect objects from knocking it out. But apparently mama’s going to knock you out anyway.

I’ve decided that I’m going to clean up the wound the best I can, dress it with some 3 in 1 oil and some gauze pads, preferably Quaker State. Then after I clean off that oil, I’ll slather it with JB Weld and never change the oil again. Oh, please. I can still change the oil by shoving a little hose into the oil fill cap and sucking. That’ll be one heck of a chocolate coming out of the box.
