Thankfulness and warningness
I am thankful for the Stinger Wet/Dry vacuum and I will warn you, never ever never defrost a turkey in a sink full of water.
It is just possible that you put a frozen Butterball turkey, you use Butterball because they are actually pre-brined for you, and the frozen ones are brined at 8% where the fresh ones are brined at 4%, salt solution that is, so the frozen ones are actually better, but you need to defrost them, which brings us back to the possibility that you will defrost it in a sink full of water, but to get there you need to put the turkey, frozen, and did I say “pre-brined,” in the sink and then turn on the water, after stopping up the drain, and you let the water run, but you may be distracted by Aphrodite or Pearlsky, of which one is preferred, and if said distraction is while the sink is filling … well, that is when you learn to be thankful for the Stinger Wet/Dry vacuum, my hero.
Wishing any of you who celebrate such, a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a dry kitchen floor.
I know that one should never laugh at another’s misfortune…especially if one has exploded a pan with the turkey in it…but, damn, that’s sort of funny.
Wishing you the same, SD. We are celebrating – oh, I need to get into the kitchen!
(A Stinger Wet/Dry vacuum is a wonderful thing.)
Have a good Turkey Day, turkey…your adventures never cease to amaze…
Happy Thanksgiving, SD.
I’m not going to reveal it now, but my thanksgiving “present” outdoes yours — perhaps for once! More on that at another time, and until then, much thanks for you — all your kindness over the past year, your sense of humor and doggedness in the face of incredible diversity.
Love and blessings to you and the Girl.
On the upside, I bet your kitchen floor is particularly clean.
Happy belated Thanksgiving, SD and Pearlsky. This year, I’m thankful that Monkey’s saintly aunt hosts the holiday meal. I’ll keep the wet/dry vacuum suggestion in mind for future reference, though.
