One of my favorite weekend activities is to go to the flea market. They always have the coolest things there, and the best prices. One of my favorite things to look for at the flea market is definitely jewelry. I have always had a ton of silver jewelry, especially rings. I like to wear at least four rings on each of my hands, so I am always decked out in tons of silver. Every morning when I am getting ready to go to work, I take my rings off and I put them next to the sink. I didn’t realize how dangerous this was until a few days ago. I accidentally bumped my rings and one of them disappeared down the sink! I immediately regretted not having a better drain guard on the sink. If I had a good drain guard, then I would have been able to prevent the ring from slipping down into the pipe. It was one of my favorite rings, so of course I was really upset about losing it. I looked up a few tips online about how to get the ring out without calling for a professional plumber. I took apart the snake pipe on my sink, but then I really didn’t know what else to do. The best thing to do at that point was to call and have a plumber come and take apart the sink. When the plumber got to my house, he said that I was actually on the right track by taking off the snake pipe. After about ten minutes of working, the plumber was able to safely remove my ring from the pipes. I had to soak it in water for a few hours so that it could get cleaned, because it was covered with sink pipe residue!
