Putting away dishes in the dark is a good idea for several reasons.
A.) You don't know if they actually got clean or not. And you don't care.
2.) You can ignore how the rest of the kitchen looks like a disaster area, and still feel accomplished because you put the freakin' dishes away.
In conclusion.) When you are overwhelmed by the task at hand, you can take a nap. Right there in the kitchen.
And I can't really find a way to tie that into a life lesson.
I hate doing dishes. So much! And I was so excited when I moved into my new apartment, because it came equipped with a dishwasher! Woot woot! Raise the roof!!
But then, the dishwasher kinda sucked in a monumental sort of way, and didn't wash so much as it rinsed. Boooo! Put that roof back down!!
Ergo, I was doing the dishes before I put them into the dishwasher. And that's the most ridiculous thing I have ever done. Probs not. But it's in the top 17.
But, seriously! Don't label it as a "dishwasher" when it does not wash! We have the technology to go to the moon!! And clearly, we are not utilizing that at current, so let's redirect our focus onto bigger and cleanlier things!
The 'Merician people have voted! And they want an appliance that does it's job!! I don't want to have to outsource to the sink!! But I will do it if I have to. Oh, yes, I will.
