And a semi-successful one, at that. :)
Last night our kitchen sink stopped draining. Not only did it stop draining, dirty water started bubbling up in the second sink in an alarming manner. And everything under the sink got sprayed with said dirty water at an amazing velocity.
Needless to say, the dishes did not get washed last night.
So this morning I called up my father-in-law to find out whether I ought to take it apart myself, or if I should call a plumber. He encouraged me to take it apart, pointing out that if I DID break it, the worst that could happen is that I'd need to call a plumber. Ah. Well.
So I took it apart, and I think I understand why plumbers get paid so stinkin' much. The operative word being "stinkin'". Gross.
But the happy part is that I didn't have to pay the plumber, because our pipes are now put back together and they only leak a VERY little bit. :)
