We just realized our kitchen sink leaks.

Rather, the garbage disposal is leaking, which means it’s not just water, it’s nasty brown food particles that turn into sludge in the under-sink cabinet.

The cabinet has been cleared, the worst of the sludge wiped out, and a pot placed under the offending area of pipes.  It will keep until morning.
