You know what came next. The sink quickly clogged and water began to backflow into the other sink. Dinner was nearing completion so a non-functioning sink was not acceptable.
The scene in the kitchen was tense for a few moments, but enter Patrick the Plumber to solve the problem!
I quickly dispatched the clog (having clogged my share of drains before - don't ask about the asisan slaw incident of 2006) and my lovely wife was so kind to help...by snapping a photo of my backside. At least there wasn't a 'plumber's crack!'
