when i was like 10, I was babysitting my little brothers and wanted to be extra helpful and surprise my mom when she got home.
I loaded all the dishes into the dishwasher and then searched under the sink for dish soap.
I remembered seeing commercials on TV for jet dry...
you know the liquid stuff you pour in the hole on the dishwasher door?
well i found some "jet dry" (only it was liquid dishwashing soap) and
poured as much as i could squeeze into that hole.
when my mom got home, not only was she surprised, she was also mad.
i had not been helpful at all.
there were *BUBBLES* spilling out of the dishwasher and all over the kitchen floor.
it was like a movie!
a horrible, disastrous movie.
it took a lot of dishwashing cycles to clear them all out.
and a lot of mopping.
and i may or may not have sucked a lot of the soap out of the hole with a straw...
being careful to stop sucking in time to not eat it.
my poor mother.
it seems i have a problem with washing dishes. maybe i should be banned from doing them? good idea.
