it is not my strong suit. Yesterday morning, I had the bright idea to clean out the refrigerator and get rid out outdated salad dressing, yogurt, tomatoes, spaghetti - you get the picture. Well, somehow, somewhere amid all the yuck I put down the garbage disposal, something clogged up the sink drain. I tried everything I knew - except for a plunger because I don't have one. I couldn't leave the house because I had clients coming to see me, so I called the condo office and asked for maintenance to come and help me. That was at one o'clock. Today at one, I was still waiting. Meanwhile, I couldn't even look at the sink without gagging - I hate that. I'm an adult; I should be able to handle a nasty sink. But I can't. There you have it. Of course, this messy, dirty, foul-smelling cesspool of a sink became the only thing I was able to think about for the past twenty-four hours. Yes, I have a tendency to let my imagination run wild when it comes to things like this. I should have just gone and bought a plunger at WalMart, but several things stopped me: A) I don't really know how to effectively use one, 2. the ground-up spaghetti and zucchini residue in the sink was really, really nasty and d. it was the principle of the thing. I had asked for maintenance and they ought to come and unclog my sink. After a fitful night's sleep, further consternation this morning and another call to the condo office, I am happy to report that I am no longer obsessed because at 1:38 pm today, a very nice man came and took care of the problem. I have since put three pots of boiling water down each drain and sanitized the sink within an inch of its life, thrown away the contaminated scrubbing pad and started the dishwasher. I feel much better now.
I'm sure the sink does, too.
