Hand Washing Dishes is Dangerous

Who knew washing dishes was a dangerous job! My dishwasher died, and I was a tad too zealous handwashing one of my glasses. It broke in my hand leaving a gash requiring seven stitches.   Everything is taking at least twice as long to do including typing this.

There were some news shows a while ago saying that the "so-called poor" had luxuries including refrigerators, stoves, and air conditioners. Some even had automatic dishwashers!  I'm not sure when stoves and refrigerators became luxury items, nor am I sure an air conditioner could necessarily be considered a luxury for the very young or old in a southern city in the summer months. Now I'm thinking I'm going to have to tell those news guys that automatic dishwashers not only save water, but may also prevent injuries.  That dishwasher is looking less and less like a luxury to me.

  2. For once I am following the doctor's orders--no washing dishes! I'm also checking out automatic dishwashers cuz, as it turns out, nobody else in the family wants to hand wash them either. Love those new ones that are all sparkling silver inside.

  3. Yikes! Glad you're more or less ok with all of your important bits intact. Hope it heals quickly and that you use this as an excuse to get that dish washer.

  4. Oh no! Poor you - I bet that's hampering your craft activities a bit. I hope it heals soon and isn't too sore. Shaz x
