Conversations with a Small Town Boy

I was standing at the kitchen sink the other day, getting ready to clean up the pile of potato peels I'd left there while making dinner when the following conversation took place:

Seth: Well I guess I should scoop out all those potato peels and put them in the trash.

Karen: I was just going to put them down the disposal.

Seth: Won't that fill up the septic tank?

Karen: Stands there looking confused.

Seth: We don't have a septic tank, do we.

Karen: No. No we don't.

Be careful putting potato peels down the disposal. One of my roommates did that once and it clogged up the drain. It made mashed potatoes!!!

Ah, the septic tank. It amazing when you consider what we DO put down there that potato will mess it up. Ha. I said "DO".

LOL! I can SO visualize this conversation.

Also, Abe says it will clog up the drain.
