Do you ever call your husband at work to tell him something totally awesome and his response is a monotone, "oh that's great!" (I debated using an exclamation point or a period, but it's not like he is saying it sarcastically so I opted for the exclamation point). Then you realize that he is being shy because he is sitting in his cubicle at work and has a thing about anyone knowing that he answers personal calls during office hours. Then you try to not be sad but you can't help but wish he would jump up and down and shout "THAT IS SO AWESOME" just like you did for twenty minutes before you called him?
Oh, it's just me who does that? Huh.
Because our disposal just stopped working about a week ago and....well, have you ever lived without a disposal? I'm sure people must have in the olden days, but back then you were used to it. If you have had the luxury of using a disposal and then it goes kaput you do dumb things like dump leftover mac and cheese, etc down the sink and then curse the heavens because you have to fish it all out with your bare hands. Anyway, add that to having a weak stomach already and...yeah.
We were all stressed because we don't know how to fix disposals, we don't want to buy a new one and even if we did we probably wouldn't know how to put it in. Bleh.
Anyway, so someone mentioned there was some reset button on the disposal, tried that....nothing. Then last night at a girl party of all places we were discussing how one could fix a disposal and I was told to get a monkey wrench (allen wrench, some sort of little wrench) and monkey around with it and see if that helped and it totally worked! How in the world was I supposed to know that? I almost went out and bought a new disposal and all I needed was a simple tool. What other household dilemmas have been stressing me out unnecessarily? Maybe there is a some random solution to those too! Seriously, tell me these common knowledge little fix-it things because I have no idea!
So, please, jump up and down on your sofa in my behalf because I fixed the disposal. For free. And I know Blaine is excited but he can't express that right now and I need someone to be excited :)
