An Invitation

2014-11-25 07.16.18 I have issued several verbal, um, invitations. But my ‘guests’ have declined to RSVP.

Yesterday, in fact, I unloaded the dishwasher and reloaded. It was only about 1/3 of the way full. I left it open because people were snacking and so forth, and I was still cooking. One of the Progeny brought in some dirty dishes and set them on the counter.

“The dishes in the dishwasher are dirty,” I said. She looked blankly at me.
“Because I unloaded it this morning and have been putting the dishes right into it. So dirty dishes can go in there.”

“Really?” she said vaguely. Then she put her dishes on the counter, shut the dishwasher and walked away. ┬áThere’s a reason for the absentmindedness, so I let it go.

Maybe next time I’ll print out something like this, laminate it, and put a magnet on the back and stick it to the dishwasher door:

put your own dirty dishes in the dishwasher
