There are lots of awful tasks in the world. Sticking your hand into a sink full of cold, cloudy water to find out why it's not draining has got to be high on the list.
Discovering that your mid-century kitchen sink no longer has any sort of straining device protecting the plumbing is awful, too.
So we borrowed a wrench and took apart the p-trap under the sink, and here is where it really gets awesome. (Sense my sarcasm.) Here is a list of the things that came out of the kitchen drain pipe:
The little scrubby brush designed to clean out nipples. (I re-worded that fragment like 4 times and it sounds filthy every way you shake it.)
2 (TWO!) baby spoons
A popsicle stick
Don't judge me.
Oh yeah. Also, when we tried to clean out the trap before re-installing it, the bottom of the U-shaped part split open. And the one we blindly bought at Lowe's doesn't fit. We now have a plastic garbage can wedged in under the sink to catch the water when I (inevitably) forget that it's broken and turn on the faucet.
Please, someone, buy my house.
