Out of the Blue

I had an unfortunate case of bad judgment come back to haunt me after overestimating the capabilities of our plumbing. As I've mentioned before, part of the dogs' diet here in the BlueTower are raw chicken wings, as they are quite capable of safely chewing through wing bones as long as they aren't cooked (which makes them quite brittle, and quite hazardous to eat). Faced with the unusual circumstance of a couple of uneaten wings, I absent-mindedly decided flushing them would be preferable to putting them in the garbage where they would putrefy. There's probably no need to explain further that this ended up resulting in a flood... made all the more dramatic by the several hours that passed between the wing disposal and the follow-up disaster flush. I managed to mop things up and clear the clog without the assistance of a plumber, so it could have been worse, but I think I have safely learned a lesson against doing something that I'm guessing most people would have been smarter about avoiding in the first place.
