Boyfriend is my Kitchen-Appliance hero!

Before we left for Michigan, we were greeted to that most-wretched of noises … the sound of the Garbage Disposal getting stuck on some random bone/rind/husk/piece of paper.

Remembering the last time I had to deal with a stuck garbage disposal (we basically ignored it until the smell was too unbearable to, well, ignore), I had a small anxiety attack.

“Boyfriend! The G/D is stuck!”

He promptly told me to forget about it until we got back from Michigan.  Of course, I knew I couldn’t forget about it because all I could think about was the refuse at the bottom of the appliance basically rotting into primordial effluvium and probably breeding new sentient species in the five days we would be out of town.

(Okay, that was a little dramatic; I did forget about it after not long at all!)

Anyway, we got back to Philly, I proceeded to wash some dishes, and reached to turn on the disposal and was again met with the high-pitched whine of an electric engine that couldn’t turn over.

Boyfriend! Don’t forget about the Garbage Disposal!”

“I’ll get to it at some point.”

A day later, after 30 quick minutes of under-sink grunting and groaning, and nary a plumber’s-crack to be seen, voila!  Boyfriend was able to harness his latent super-human abilities and become … dum Dah DUM … the In-Sink-erator***!

*** In-Sink-erator is a division of Emerson and based in the good ole USA.  But doesn’t it sound like a great super-hero name?

Change a Lightbulb, change the world!

It only takes 18 seconds to change a bulb. If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an energy-efficient bulb, together we could save enough energy to light more than 2.6 million homes for a year. Find out how you can save energy and cash by making the switch to energy-efficient light bulbs... and check out how many have already sold in your area.
