Doing Dishes

Yes, another dish post.  But!  This is not the usual whining “Oh why oh why are my dishes dirty AGAIN???” post.

Nope.  This one might shock some of you.  So, hang onto your hats!  Here we go!

According to the Bible, I wash dishes like a MAN!   What???  Yup!

Guttenberg Bible




“And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down.”
See?  I do that, cuz I don’t trust my washing skills!   So, since I do dishes like a man, does that mean I can wait for someone else to do them?????   (Sorry guys if that hurt, just calling like I see ’em, from my VAST experience. lol  Except XH, I must say, he was very good to me about doing the dishes when I was depressed, or disabled- AFTER he retired, that is!)
So, I guess now I’m gonna have to go take a pic, so you can see for yourself.  Oh ACK! That means doing dishes, again!  I already washed my cup, bowl, and spoon from breakfast.  Can you believe it??  The day I need to document myself washing dishes, and I don’t have any dirty ones!!   So annoying!  Actually, I’m very proud of myself, that that is true!!!  Woo hoo, me!!  I think I need to go celebrate!!

I couldn’t find any purple ones. 😦

Okay, back from the party.  (That was fun!!)
Now to go see if I can take my own pic of me washing dishes upside down.   I’ll be sure and let you know how it goes!

  1. Do you really think in Biblical times, they used to wash dishes, if at all or did they eat finger food ?
    Also, did men do dishes ? That is something new for me. I love your battles with the dishes- believe me, I battle with me too- having no dish washer.

  2. So washing dishes is a Godly thing? I have to have something to hang on to. You see, my dishwasher just broke yesterday, and it was truly the one machine in the house that I used to cope with and manage the overwhelming amount of housework that I am permanently and eternally on the losing end of.

    I am still grumbling about having to now hand wash every single crumby dish that passes through our table, but if it’s a Godly thing…maybe I’ll be more amenable now 😉

    • Oh no! Coral, I’m so sorry to hear of the death of your dishwasher. My deepest condolences, I know how close y’all were.
      Oh, but certainly! Cleanliness is next to Godliness, ya know! (Or so all the old wives who tell tales would have you believe!!)
