I was doing the dishes yesterday, one huge pile of dirty glasses, plates, utensils and pots to one side; the empty dish rack on the other when the philosopher in me reared her head up and spoke.
The dishes theory states that: Dirty dishes are inversely proportional to clean dishes, the same way clean dishes are inversely proportional to dirty dishes.
This means that, like the high and low of see-saws, for every pile of dirty dishes stacked, there’s an equally low stack of clean dishes on the other side. The opposite is also true. For every stack of clean dishes piled to one side, there’s an equally low stack of dirty dishes on the other.
In simpler terms, washing dishes only make them available to be dirtied once more, while dirtying dishes mean you’ll only have to clean them again.
Sorry folks, just a little venting for today’s post.
I’m equally frustrated and amazed that the faster I clean, the faster everything is back in the sink!
