One is the Dirtiest Number…

So Karen went and left me for 10 days to gallivant about Costa Rica, and I remembered what happens when guys are left alone in a house for a few days:

A sad commentary on the life of the single male.

But I did manage to get a hammock up in the back yard. It’s a matter of priorities.

And, yes, I did clean the kitchen before she returned last night, bearing coffee.

  1. It’s been interesting trying to figure out what you had
    to eat (drink?)in all of those dishes. I do see a beer
    glass, right?

  2. I should note for the record that I came home to dinner waiting, no dirty dishes, clean laundry and recently mopped floors. In the morning, he made bacon and gluten-free buckwheat pancakes. I guess he missed me. And I guess I have a pretty good husband. I sat next to a mother and her 6-month old baby on the flight from Atlanta to Albuquerque and she expected a full day of laundry upon her return. After a week away, she was sure her husband had left her heaps of dirty clothes. How do we ever train them? she asked. Another woman in our row responded that her husband helps out around the house… but it took 40 years of marriage to get to that point.

    I guess I’m lucky.

    I was on your flight home?

  4. Jerry, don’t use a frying pan or dish and just throw it in the sink! Place it in the refrigerator instead. You will never have to wash any dishes if you just keep them refrigerated to retard bacterial growth.

  5. @ Habilis – That’s brilliant. And then I can simply microwave stuff in the cold dishes to sterilize it all.
    It probably helps to regularly cycle soup through the dishes to keep food buildup at a minimum.
