Washing Dishes, #1182


I haven’t written in response to “The Daily Prompt” in awhile, and so today when I clicked on their site and saw this:

Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves

I knew I could write a 20 page essay on the topic!  Omg!  Dishes are the freakin’ bane of my existence.  There is some sort of magical evil force that belongs to my sink.  It doesn’t matter how long I spend washing, scrubbing, drying and putting away, somehow I’ll turn my back for a mere few moments and new dishes will reappear.  For instance, Exhibit A!


After dinner last night, the dishwasher was emptied and then loaded again.  The sink was scoured and spotless.  How could these new dishes possibly emerge so quickly.  C’mon family, help a Mama out!  Put your damn dishes in the dishwasher.  I guess at least there’s a small bright side – those dirty dishes do make it to the sink at least.

The only solace in this matter is that I know I’m not alone in the dish washing nightly trauma.  I know I’m not alone, because Jack Johnson even wrote a song about this topic.  Enjoy his lovely music for a not so lovely topic and, blog readers, read this and urge your family to lend a helping hand!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
