Day 85 - Necessary

Sometimes it boggles my mind what components hold something together. You look at a complex object and can't fathom how it works, then upon dismantling, you realize it's one little piece that makes the whole thing work.

I've been trying to get my garbage disposal to feed into the pipes without leaking because the gasket broke. Over the last 2 days I have bought 3 gaskets and I can't get the pipe seal to stop leaking. It's strange that just one gasket renders half of my sink useless. I bought a gasket yesterday, installed it and then realized it wasn't working. I bought a new one today and took out the old one, already bent and disfigured. Sometimes it's odd realizing the toll that using the wrong tool can have.
