Object Writing Page 30- Dish Washing

The infamous chore of dish washing. It could take a couple of hours if done by a neat freak. Scraping every microscopic germ from every plate and caked up spoon. The task could take 30 minutes or less if done by someone calling “clean” each dish covered with white soapy suds. I have my days of being both people. The dishwasher you are comes from how you were taught and how often you do the most tedious of chores. The process is simple: Run the water, add soap, rub a rag across each dish, rinse, dry and repeat.

I love using lukewarm water cause it feels marvelous on my hands and gives me the confidence the germs are in a watery grave. You know you’ve been washing dishes for too long when your hands and fingers get wrinkly like a sink of pale grapes. The sight of a busy kitchen littered with stacks of dirty dishes, covered with cake and chicken pieces, drives me nuts. After the dishes have been washed and put up, the transformation from ungroomed facial hair to a clean shaven man, is now complete. The kitchen then invites you to cook and eat more food on the clean dishes.
