JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 38 kitchen light kindness

7 Feb

Lucky moments. 

Tonight while trying to change the light bulb above the sink a tiny little screw fell into the sink below. Not just into the sink, but into the drain. The InSinkErator.

Justin and I both looked at each other. Did that really just happen? Did that tiny screw from the light fixture really just fall into the drain? 

Both of us tried to reach inside and feel for the screw with our fingers but our hands are too big. We apparently have big, adult hands and they don’t fit well in the InSinkErator – which is probably a good thing.

As I scrambled to find a flashlight and tweezers, Justin tried to squeeze his hand into the sink and reach for the little screw. Then it moved. We lost it.

With tweezers and flashlight in hand, we both peered into the drain trying to find where the screw flew. The dishwasher then shot a tidal wave of water through the sink’s drain.

We looked at each other and then at the drain which was swirling with water around and around before our eyes.

As soon as the water drained out, there sat at the bottom of the drain one tiny screw. As if the flow of water appeared right on cue to flip the screw back into eyesight.

So tonight, I am celebrating a certain act of kindness from our sink. And dishwasher. And all the supporting forces that washed that tiny screw back ashore.

Now, how many people does it take to change a lightbulb?

More tomorrow….
