I would have posted this yesterday, but I couldn’t stop crying and therefore was unable to see the computer screen.
Last night I was soaking baby bottles in the kitchen sink. A series of events led to my phone landing in the soapy water. Lucky for me, I have experience with this kind of situation because only a few months ago I washed my iphone in the washing machine. So I knew that what I needed to do was get my phone in a bag of rice right away.
In my haste, I dumped the entire box of rice in the sink. If you look closely, you can see my phone in that half-empty Ziplock bag.
Unfortunately, more rice got outside of the bag than inside of it. You may be wondering how THAT happened. Well, I was crying. And the baby was crying. So it just happened.
After the white rice got everywhere except for where I needed it to be, I had to scrap that plan and move on to Plan B which was to freak out. And then start over with a smaller box of Publix Instant Brown Rice which I found in the cabinet.
Here is what I learned:
1. Digging rice out of a garbage disposal with your bare hand sucks.
2. It’s not necessary to dig rice out of a garbage disposal. If you just TURN IT ON, YOU IDIOT, the rice goes away on its own.
