Well, not exactly beauty, but the plumber was here extremely early, augered it out with the professional ability that both BB and I lack, and voila! We have a working toilet. What's more, the gentleman came only two hours after we called the company, instead of in the six or so hours they told us to expect. And the cost was far, far less than I'd feared it would be.
