A lone pea rolls into the garbage disposal, and I lament its sorry fate. Certainly even I'm not crazy enough to stick my hand down there and rescue it from amid the muck and blades, risk my life and limb for the sake of a pea. Right?

Well, right. I guess. Although I do consider it for an inordinate amount of time.

So what do I do? Let it suffer and perish alone? Or sacrifice another to join it, in noble solidarity as befits "two peas in a pod"? Do I dare double the inevitable screams echoing into the sink?
