Anathema Anthem

My good friend Susie said that washing dishes was anathema to her.     (Don’t you love that word??)

My immediate response was, “Don’t worry, they don’t like it either!”

So, then I started thinking,  “Hey, I wonder what dishes DO think about it?”

Are they just chillaxin in old sweats?  (Can we agree if mold’s growing on it, then it’s old??  and stinky like sweats?)

slob, humor, moldy can o' food

Then unceremoniously slammed into hot, soapy water, bubbles filling their noses, being boiled alive!!        WHAT THE HECK????

slob, humor, dishes


“Hey, oh! Hey!  I’m being scalded alive here!”       I can just hear them shout, loudly!!        I’m quite sure you could hear it too, if you attune your ears to their distress!

Sorry plates, and bowls, gotta do what a slob’s gotta do!!         Maybe next time I won’t wait so long, and then it won’t be such a shock to your delicate ceramic!!

  1. No dishwasher here, so my dishpan hands and I can certainly side with your friend Susie (and yes, I love that word!). I never thought about it from the point of view of the dishes.

    Mine are currently drowning in a dishpan of what I am sure is now cold water – at least as cold as water can get on a night as warm as this one. And I think I am going to head to bed and leave them there ’til morning.

  2. What if it’s just the opposite? The dirty dishes are crying! When they hit that hot, soapy water, it’s like you and me settling into a hot tub. “Aaaaaahhhhhh, it’s about time, you slob! “
