Just a silly mistake: Oct. 23

It was a simple plan, really.

Because the few things left in the sink would be just enough to fill the dishwasher, but dinner would produce enough dishes to just about make up its own load, I’d run it before Suzi started dinner.

That way, when the dishes were clean a few hours later, I’d be able to empty the dishwasher and refill it before it got too late.

Around the time I thought the dishes would be done, I opened the dishwasher between innings of the baseball game, and the first dish was filthy.

OK, fine, the washing didn’t take. I’d just throw that back in with the next load … and then I realized that nothing was clean. My brilliant, yet simple plan had hit a roadblock called me forgetting to actually run the dishwasher after I loaded it.

“I am the dumbest person in the world,” I said when I told Suzi what had happened, but I was smiling as I said it.

Because I’m not the dumbest person in the world. I did something silly, but there was no harm done, just a mild inconvenience.

Not all mistakes are the end of the world. In fact, most of the aren’t.

Stuff I read

This was not a good week for the brain to produce anything, so we move on.

This from Mari on why people don’t like tourists is so good. It’s probably not what you assume.

Bruce took 10 photos, with 10 words for each.

Renata has a very small appetite. (She also was on a podcast, where she talked about a friend asking if she puts Buffalo sauce on her ice cream. Who would DO that?)

There will be no more babies for Pea Green.

If you’re looking to pick up running in middle age, Graham has some advice. As for me, I’ll stick to pickleball.

Becky rejoices.

Things have been good for Savannah lately.

Sarah’s life has been slightly tumultuous.

If the anxiety starts later today (or if it’s already started), Nancy has some suggestions.

After 205 days, Pepper’s daughter got some relief.

Ally accidentally stole a bag of potato chips … at least she claims it was an accident.

Bex’s anxiety has been triggered a lot.

Kielbasa is the answer to River’s question.

It took some doing, but Jackie in Italy got her gelato.

Giulia wants to know how.

I’d probably do this on a bus under the right circumstances. Bring this to airplanes at a reasonable prices, and whatever airline does it will have a customer forever.

Tweets I liked

Given current circumstances, anyone have any better ideas?

A good way of thinking, even if it doesn’t work.

If that’s how you’re going to respond to being told no, why would you ask in the first place?

Sometimes, Suzi coming home is the only thing that stops me.

I’m with you, kitty.

  1. Thanks for including me in your weekly round-up. I appreciate it. As for you and your mistake, well– yes running the dishwasher helps, good of you to figure that out. I’m laughing out loud at the Liz and Mollie cartoon. Me, definitely
