When googling for the definition of the word 'blog', the first result says: Blog is short for weblog. A weblog is a journal (or newsletter) that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption...
The second result says: ...Blogs are typically updated daily...
Frequently updated, eh? Updated daily?!? Dang. Blogging must be hard. Dunno what exactly it is that I'm doing here, but it surely ain't blogging.
Speaking of what I'm doing, what the hell have I been doing for the last week that's been so damn time consuming? Any guesses?
I'll just tell you. Dishes. I've been doing the dishes. Pots, pans, plates, silverware, lime squeezers, oversized coffee mugs, the works. My in-laws have been staying with us for the last week and my wife had the foolish idea to try and feed them three meals a day. I went along with her cockamamie plan because our unspoken agreement is that I will pretend to be a better person than I actually am when the in-laws visit. Completing the charade is that my in-laws pretend to believe my Eddie Haskell-like persona. They are kind people.
Anyway, I need to go unload the dishwasher now, but I can tell you this: My next house will have 2 full-sized dishwashers. After I fill and run Dishwasher A, then I'll just use clean dishes from it as I need them. When I generate more dirty dishes, I'll load them into Dishwasher B. Once that baby gets full, their roles will reverse.
I may be the Haskell of in-laws, but I am the Mozart of dishwashing.
