he fixed it! just to prove that he is semi-handy after all.
the ladies at gymnastics helped - you know who you are.
apparently there is a reset button on the bottom of the disposal. and a little tool that you can use to unclog the blades. of course we kept that little thing, because we keep everything. i'm serious, we have all of our manuals in a binder. the little tool was in the binder pocket.
so he did just what the gym moms said, and everything is right with the world.
crow for dinner.
