Earth Shattering!

About two weeks ago we had some crazy weather come through town. During this bad weather I had a dish drain full of drying dishes. Among these drying dishes was my beloved salad spinner. I love my salad spinner. I received my salad spinner a few years ago for Christmas and have truly loved having it, and using it. My salads just won't be the same without it, and I just don't know if I can wait until Christmas to ask for another. As you can tell something happened to my salad spinner...

It was a cold, wet Saturday night. The rain had been coming down all day, and all week for that matter. I had done my Saturday chores earlier in the day, which included washing the dishes - by hand. After I was done washing the dishes I stacked them as high as I could in the dish drain. I continued on my Saturday cleaning and then got ready for the evening out with my girlfriends. That evening my Daddio and "the Sister" were staying the night with my Landlord (brother). As they were enjoying an evening of Seinfeld in the living room, with rain drizzling outside. The surrounding of the house was struck with an enormous BOOM from the thunder and lightning! The house shook, upon shaking a second sound came from the kitchen. An Earth Shattering noise!!! The three hooligans in the living room immediately got up and went to the kitchen to see what the matt'a. As they came into the kitchen there on the floor, in shattered pieces, was my precious salad spinner. I can only imagine that if I had of been present when this happened there would've been a deafening scream come out of me - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

When upon arriving home that evening my Daddio, "the Sister," and Landlord braced me for what I would be witnessing in the kitchen. Almost in unison the three of them said, "You're going to be upset, something happened in the kitchen." As the tears began to mount I slowly approached the kitchen, I come around the corner to see my broken salad spinner. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I tried to remain calm and decided that it could be fixed with a lot of patience and super glue. So, that next day I gathered the broken pieces and glue, and got to work. As I began this tedious process I realized that there were a few pieces missing. I searched the floor over and over hoping that these two small little pieces would show up. However, they never did...at that moment. Out of much frustration I took my salad spinner, the sad remains, and threw it away. Only to find, days later, the missing pieces. What the HELLLLLLLLL-O, that always seems to be the case with everything.
Now, I no longer have a salad spinner. I tried to move on this past week, and got to work making me a salad, but was livid with irritation that I had to use a spaghetti strainer to try to clean my salad. Oh, how I miss my salad spinner. I love you salad spinner, I will miss you, but I know that in time (and money) I will find/get a new salad spinner. Until then, life just won't be the same when it comes to making my salads.

That story sounds suspicious. Lightning shook the house enough to knock it on the floor? It sounds like a cover up.

Should we start a fund to buy her a new salad spinner? Contact me if you're willing to donate.

i have a plastic one you can have. it's not as fancy, but i'm sure it'll wash your lettuce. i wish i loved my salads as much as you do, i maybe would be thinner.
