65 is not just a number

Do you know what this is? It is a $65 dollar spoon.









Now, my wife didn't go crazy and buy a antique spoon or anything. On Sunday, we came home and the disposal wasn't working. It is the original that was installed when the house was built in '94 so I just assumed it was dead. It started to try and turn but gave up pretty quickly. I looked inside and couldn't see anything so I called our home warranty people. I waited 3 hours today and the plumber came out. I thought I was getting a new disposal but instead I was handed a $65 bill and a spoon that had gone missing days ago.

Also, in cleaning all of the dishes before the plumber showed up I stumbled across a piece of tupperware that I thought we had lost. Apparently, sometime in the last year it fell in the dishwasher and I never saw it near the heating element. I don't think it is reusable.









That is all,

Newt

Ahhh, the joys of home ownership. You should frame the spoon.

And on a side note...you're developing quite the readership!

I bet the Tate Modern would take that off your hands

You have weird spoons

Tessa - Thanks for stopping by. You are always welcome and hopefully entertained.

It is a measuring spoon so I can't frame it or I won't be able to have a teaspoon.

GI Kate - I hope you didn't think I ate cereal with that?

Girl Interrupted said...

Well ... yes!

Am I missing something here?

Ps: Got Google Chat today ... just need to figure out how to use it now

That is a teaspoon, for measuring out teaspoons when you cook. I use regular spoons for all of my normal eating. That is about 4 inches long. Not the same kind as what I eat with.
