Scene: Dinner time at Mr. and Mrs. VM's. Mr. VM sits down to a lovely meal and suddenly remembers that Mrs. VM did not get him something to drink. He heads into the kitchen.
Mrs VM heading him off: Can I help you honey?
Mr. VM: No, just getting something to drink.
Mrs. VM: Don't trouble yourself dear. Let me get that for you.
Mr. VM hesitantly sitting down. Looking at Mrs. VM as if she's lost it.
Mrs. VM disappears for a second and returns with a nice refreshing drink.
Mrs. VM: There you are dear. Sitting the glass on the table.
Mr. VM really looking at his wife closely. Inspecting her for any seams. Possibly turned into a Stepford wife without his permission.
All is well for a few seconds.
Mr. VM: Darn, there's no ice in this drink. Gets up again and heads for the kitchen.
Mrs. VM heads him off at the door doing the 4 foot sprint in 5 nano seconds.
Mrs. VM: No, really dear. Let me get that.
Mr. VM: It's OK. What is wrong with you really. He pushes past her into the kitchen.
Door swings shut.
Door swings open again and we hear.
Mrs VM: Really dear it's not what it looks like. I can explain. See, I thought...
Mr VM exasperated: Mrs VM! What did you do to our dishwasher?
Mrs. VM: Oh, darn it. Really I thought I could fix it. Big pout on her face.
Cut to commercial.
I swear sometimes I feel like I live in an old episode of the Lucille Ball show. The cap came off by one of the fill markers for our jet dry dispenser, so every little crumb falls down in there and shoots up into my glasses. They hardly ever come out clean. And the dryer just bakes all those crumbs onto the glasses permanently. I could save myself a lot of time by simply handwashing the glasses to begin with. So I got this bright idea to fill that hole with Dawn dishwashing liquid. A, it would shoot cleaning gel into my glasses and B, it would keep any crumbs from falling into that hole. That's when the dishwasher started to make some sort of strange sound that sounded like something between grinding gears while shifting a car and an angry grizzly bear. I kid you not. When I opened it up, it looked like the photos below. And as Mr. VM pointed out later, when you put Dawn into a dishwasher and it suds up like that, it won't drain. Mrs. VM, ie me, did manage to make it all OK by bailing the water out and running the dishwasher on a quick mode. Fortunately it came out dry the second time. I'm just hoping that weird gear / bear sound passes. It was such a nice quiet dishwasher before.
