One of those movies only I remember...

Growing up we didn't have a garbage disposal at home.  We scraped our plates into the garbage can and had a little strainer in our sink to catch any stray food that we missed.

We did get a dishwasher at some point but I don't remember when.  I remember not having it and then I remember having it but I can't remember how old I was when we got it.

When I moved in with Jerry, after we got married, I had no idea what the rules were about using a garbage disposal.  I had no idea what I could or couldn't put into it.  I was so excited that I would be able to rinse the dishes into the sink and just turn the disposal on and that would be that - no stinky garbage until Nate came along!  Even though I loved my garbage disposal, I always had a bit of anxiety involved with turning it on.  I knew exactly why the first time I flipped the switch.  It was like a flashback and it all stemmed from a movie I remember watching as a kid.

Now - fess up - anyone ever heard of The Incredible Shrinking Woman before watching this clip?

I swear I think of this scene EVERY stinkin' time I turn on my garbage disposal...EVERY time.  That's probably 4 or 5 times a day.   I think of Lily Tomlin stuck in a garbage disposal 4 or 5 times a day.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Lily Tomlin but thinking about anyone getting egg yolks dumped on their head makes me gag a little.  Is it any wonder I hate doing dishes and usually beg Jerry to clean the kitchen after dinner?  (which he almost ALWAYS does)

80s movies are awesome...any you still think of frequently?
