kitchen disaster #25,345,896

The other day I cleaned out the fridge at work and realized I had two Tupperware containers of food in there that had been in there for months days. I decided to go ahead and take them home and get rid of them.

Now normally I would have just thrown them away, containers and all, to avoid the smell of what was surely rotten inside.

Or I would have left them on the kitchen counter for Mr. Perfect to deal with later.

Seriously, why did he marry me?!?

But this time, I decided to put my big girl pants on and take care of it myself.

I headed to the garbage disposal, handy scarf wrapped around my face, to take care of some business. I turned the water on, poured the food in the sink, and turned it on.

You would have thought I just shattered a million pieces of glass. All of sudden there's this horrendous noise, water, pieces of broccoli and cheese, and some unidentified substance are flying everywhere. All over the wall and my face. In between gags I managed to turn off the disposal.

I peered down in there, but couldn't see anything and there was NO WAY I was putting my hand in there. Y'all seen the movies, it doesn't work out well. I do not want a nub.

So I gave it another shot. Didn't go well. There is now rotten broccoli and cheese all over me and my kitchen. I was furious.

I finally found a pair of tongs (duh tongs!) and pulled out the culprit. Stupid spoon. I tossed the spoon in the dishwasher and finished my chore. Then I had to clean up the kitchen.

When the Mr. was unloading the dishwasher that night, he came upon said spoon.

"Someone had a disagreement with the disposal huh?" he asked me.

What?!? You can tell that.

So busted.

I really should just stay out of that cursed room.

I won't ever put my hand in the disposal either. Ever. Period. I always make my husband get whatever it is.

The other day I was peeling potatoes when one slipped out of my hand into the disposal. Well, he wasn't home so I grabbed some tongs. And, threw away the potato.

Oh, well.

Oh gosh, this sounds like a nightmare to me. Seriously. My husband is the one who always disposes of mystery food found in Tupperware. So sorry!

Sometimes it's great when hubby knows you so well- other times, not so much :)

Ha! This is too funny. And gross. I am SO the person who leaves the tupperwares in the fridge for 6 months. I used to just automatically throw them away, but now that we have nice tupperware stuff...I try to clean them out. It is so disgusting. Stuff like that makes me gag like crazy...and I'm not even pregnant! I can't believe you managed all of that! :)
