Have you ever been so overwhelmed that loading the dishwasher seems like a phenomenal task? I am but a singular lady living in a studio apartment. Every day I marvel at the sheer amount of dishes I collect in a few short hours. Cups on my nightstand, plates on the TV tray (2 feet away from my nightstand), coffee and tea mugs on my kitchen island (3 feet away from the TV tray). And if I cook?! Oh, it’s all over. Somehow, I deploy every dish in my kitchen’s arsenal. The stovetop resembles the aftermath of a rugby game – and it rained.
For those living with roommates and/or families, I cannot imagine the magnitude of dishes collected daily. May your sinks ever be emptied and cleaned by an unknown source that is not you. May the benevolent blue Dawn make her Powerwash products to shine upon you. It’s rough out here! I will light a candle.
In the meantime, we still have to eat! It is wild that after you make a meal, you’re going to have to make another meal. Being indoors 1000% more made this fact impossible to understand – my brain refuses to absorb it.
