We don’t have garbage disposals in our drains in Sweden. Which is why I was always confused when I watched American movies as a child. We have filters that prevents anything from leftovers to spoons from going down the drain. Can’t you call a professional for help, like a plummer or someone? I’d love to hear how that conversation would go. Can’t wait for Fathomless!!!
Jackson at work! Ask dad or friend or neighbor to bring over some channel lock pliers. Those should be able get in there and pull out your spoon. If they are too large try regular pliers or even Vise Grip or locking pliers could work as well. Good Luck!
Good luck with the spoon. If it were me, I’d turn on the disposal for a second and see if it dislodged it. This is probably why I shouldn’t be allowed around dangerous appliances. Or anything in the kitchen actually. =)
Do the comments count here? I hope you get the spoon out soon! I’m looking forward to the Decatur Book Festival and cannot wait for Fathomless!
So glad that your videos are back! I do not have a garbage disposal, which I sometimes regret as all that gross stuff that people can just put down there winds up in my trash and makes it smell bad, but I guess it’s a good thing as I’ve never had an epic fight with a spoon.
This spoon is a problem!!
I can’t wait for Fathomless!! I’m so excited!!
Also, I am so glad your videos are back!!
Yay! Very excited the videos are back!
We lost a shot glass down the disposal once. And no one realized it until we turned it on and glass went a-flying. I felt very bad for the maintenance guy at my apartment.
I would love to win a ARC of Fathomless, knowing it’s bound to be awesome. Though I do hope you get the spoon out of there
I’m so excited for fathomless, since, you know, I was a total Ariel fangirl when it came out (“was”…. ) back then, and I hope this will be just as cool as Sisters Red and Sweetly.
Is that spoon problem solved yet??? Good luck with it!
Glad to see you’re back! I missed your videos!
Good luck with the spoon down the disposal. My now-ex-boyfriend once dropped a quarter down mine. At least you can SEE the spoon. I couldn’t see the quarter. I had to cough up the cost of the plumber, but at least I didn’t have to replace the disposal as I thought I would have to. Naugh, that’s not the only reason he’s now my ex.
I just signed up for a writer’s workshop at Dekalb Library that you are teaching. Hopefully the class is not yet full and there is still space for me.
Good luck with the new book. (Hope I win the ARC.)
The spoon issue sounds so frustrating! I asked my husband, since he knows more about this than I do. His suggestion was, first, to unplug the garbage disposal. Then to shove something down to see if you can dislodge the spoon.
I’m with Sarah, only I chose not to install a garbage disposal. The sink filter is easier to deal with, although you still have to lift it out and chuck the sink leftovers into the garbage–it beats fetching a spoon out. =D
Good luck with that!
Happy you’re back,Jackson! Can’t wait to read Fathomless!
Wish I could help with the spoon situation! I know how frustrating that can be! I can’t wait for Fathomless and am excited about the chance to win an ARC.
Hey Jackson, so glad your videos are back because I love to hear your unique take on things. Always enjoyable and a lot of fun! Sorry that you have to deal with the spoon situation, it ‘s kinda like my worst nightmare. So excited for the upcoming Fathomless and the chance to win the ARC.
Well, did you get the spoon out?!!
Where did you get your idea for Fathomless? Are you a big fan of The Little Mermaid? Since I am….I’m super excited for this 3rd fairytale installment!
This is such a cliffhanger ending! Did you get the spoon out? I sure hope so.
I can’t wait for Fathomless! Loved Sweetly and Sisters Red
I hope you get the spoon out soon ^_^ We end up loosing a lot of spoons down our drain…and then we end up making my dad stick his hand in >:D but…we always end up getting it out…so :/
anyways, it was really exciting seeing you at the Realm of the Unknown author panel I plan on skipping Sweetly like you suggested c:
So glad you’ve resumed shooting your videos!Although it was short,It was still good to see a fresh one of you.No advice on the spoon situation,but I know you will resolve it soon.
P.S. Is your name really Jackson Pearce,or is that your pen name,like Nelly Bly’s real name was Elizabeth Cochran.
