It’s a daily – at the very least – undesired job but somebody’s gotta do it . . . Little did I know that soon coming was the uncovering of twin truths.
“I’ll empty the dishwasher till you’re off,” I said trying to make a deal with my Mom who was on the computer that we both wanted to use. “Then you can finish emptying the rest.”
Honestly, all I planned to do on the laptop once she got off was google “models falling on runways” to get a good hearty laugh before our good hearty dinner.
The chicken for homemade chicken noodle soup was still in the oven & the celery & carrots still had to cook. Typical me, I have my food all figured out – my favorite thing is putting extra large pieces of chicken from my soup bowl next to me on a plate, to then eat with salt & tasty BBQ sauce.
“If you said you’re emptying the dishwasher, I’ll just stay on the computer till you’re all done then,” my Mom disclosed – to my total surprise – shortly after. I flipped around in astonishment to face her, in utter disbelief at what my ears were hearing.
But then again, I actually had a similar confession. “If I hear you emptying the dishwasher & I’m in my room or my bathroom, I’ll just stay there & wait till you’re done so I don’t have to help do it.”
Whaddya know, both of us, UNBEKNOWNST also to both of us, didn’t even think of STEPPING into the kitchen when the other was engaged in the Neverending Necessary Chore aka the dishwasher emptying process.
I’m tellin’ ya, our cackles sure roared when our identical revelations finally saw the light.
Takes one to know one.
