Example text

I dumped my bag in the laundry, stripped off and threw all my clothes in the washing machine, and proceeded naked straight to the bathroom. In a slow exhausted trance I closed the door, took a shower, shaved and then sat on the toilet and 33 **Don't Tell Mum-Rigs 27/7/05 4:27 PM Page 34 DON'T TELL MUM I WORK ON THE RIGS was thumbing through Sports Illustrated when Joe burst into the house through his dog door. He knew I was home and ran from room to room looking for me. I called out and in the inch gap between the tiled floor and the bottom of the door I could see his little feet standing on the other side.

This was finally done by getting him to stand on the front rim, facing the upright seat and leaning forwards so his hands rested on the cistern, thereby achieving the right angle, much like a human male does when trying to pee with an erection. Joe and I had one of our greatest battles in the toilet. I had returned home from a job offshore to an empty house; Drew was on annual leave, Erwin was offshore. Joe had been home alone, though we had installed a dog door for him to come and go, and three days a week a lady from the village came to clean the house and feed him.

A few months later his son found it and activated it, and within the hour he had choppers and police cars swarming on his suburban home. The compressed air canister, or spare air, is vital too.
