While my dad and I were going through my house checking for things that need fixing, we found an insulin needle on the board that covers the hole the sump pump is in. I don’t know where it came from or how long it had been there. I go down to the basement every day, I can’t believe I hadn’t noticed this needle before.
I guess that’s how bad my eyes are. I don’t see things until someone points them out to me. It was bright orange and in a spot that I almost always look at when I’m in the basement. If I had eventually noticed it on my own, I might’ve picked it up on the wrong end and that would not have been pretty.
I’m sort of freaked out that this thing was there all this time.
