I just got back from a short business trip. Stepping into the house and becoming readjusted to my surroundings after three and a half days in Marriott splendor on Tampa Bay, I noticed that the dirty dishes in the sink looked suspiciously like the dirty dishes that were in the sink the morning I left town.
I said to Jeff,"I can't believe you let those dishes stay in the sink so long!"
"Huh?" he said, peering into the sink.
"That same pot has been 'soaking' for more than four days!" I exclaimed.
"Four days?! That's not a long time for dirty dishes to be in the sink."
"How long do YOU think is too long for dishes to be in the sink?" was my retort.
"An entire freshman year. THAT is too long," was Jeff's satisfied answer.
