A peach pit fell into the garbage disposal!!!
The apartment kitchen has a garbage disposal, something I’ve never had in any Bedford kitchen as they are not allowed if you have a septic system. Lots of people put them in anyway, but I never did.
We had one in my house growing up and I remember the angst of trying to retrieve something that fell down, usually silverware.
I had two peaches this morning and as I took out the pits, I said to myself, self, just be sure to carry the pits safely to the trash can. But one blooped out, did a double bounce in the sink and fell, kuplunk, down the hole of fear.
There’s an electric panel in the apartment and I could have turned off circuit #9 dedicated to the garbage disposal, but I could SEE the pit and decided to reach in and get it.
Admittedly, getting the pit with my hand versus long tongs or first turning off power to the unit was not too smart, but I’m glad to report I still have a left and right hand and all my fingers.
The Pit Incident cemented my reasoning for not putting a disposal in the renovated kitchen.
Gorgeous Friday in this neck of the woods. I had the windows open all night. Aaah. The constant hummmm of the 287 traffic is getting more like white noise, but it is constant.
Lots of people still recovering from Ida. Flooding was huge in Mamaroneck and Rye. The Sawmill and Bronx River Parkways were like rivers. It was a mess.
Weekend Labor Day plans for you all? Going away? Staying home? Nothing on my weekend agenda yet but it’s early.
Have a good one.
