The old toilet we took out was almond -- matching all the other porcelain items in the bathroom.
When Brillo Man announced to me that he had purchased this new toilet (because it's higher and will be easier for me to use considering the MS that I live with) I mentioned that it wasn't almond and that it didn't match and probably wouldn't look good and we should buy an almond one.
He told me that in order to get an almond color toilet in that height, it would have to be special ordered and would cost a bunch of money - as in "close to $400". (For a toilet?!)
I told him it wouldn't look good.
He said he'd put it downstairs in the basement bathroom. (Not that it will do me much good down there because obviously, I'm not going down a flight of stairs just to use a toilet that's three inches higher so that it will be easier for me to stand up.)
The next day, I told him that it didn't matter if the toilet were put in upstairs in the master bathroom (because I knew that's where he really wanted to install the thing).
Yesterday he said to me, "That toilet really doesn't look good in the bathroom. It doesn't match. I think I'll buy an almond colored one and swap them out because it really wouldn't be that much trouble to swap them out."
I looked at him and said, "Are you serious?!"
"I thought you said that it would cost almost $400 for a new almond color toilet which is that height."
"Well, we'll just have to find one that doesn't cost that much...."
(I'm not going to scream. Or lose my joy.)
