While it took more than a few days, it was a promise he was ultimately able to fulfill.

Public relations specialists spend a lot of time pitching story ideas to journalists tying current or seasonal events with some type of campaign they are trying to promote.
Along that line, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency should probably be nominated for some type of award for the way it pitched a story idea tying together the following things: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and proper septic tank maintenance.
"With its happy gatherings of family and friends, the holiday season may not seem like the perfect time to talk about proper use and maintenance of septic systems," EPA officials wrote. "But it is."
The reasoning was that, since you're having lots of guests over for feasts and whatnot, that might, um, "strain" your system.
In addition to keeping up with regular tank maintenance, the EPA suggested asking your guests to avoid parking cars or heavy equipment on septic tank drainage fields.
The agency also suggested telling people items they should avoid flushing down the toilet, including dental floss, feminine hygiene products, cigarette butts and condoms.
Yeah, because that's the conversation I want to have over hors d'oeuvres...
