Last Tuesday was a bad day. I had a cold. Usually for me, this means a couple of days of a runny nose and sore throat – I don’t get sick very often and when I do it’s usually pretty minor. Not this cold, it was WAY worse. I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t think. I even took the day off from work because I just couldn’t function. The worst thing I could do though was sit around. Moving seemed to help the most to clear my head. So I decided to do the dishes.
I put all the dishes in the dishwasher, got out the dishwasher detergent and filled up the cups. “Man,” I thought, “this soap is really runny … and why is it clear?” But I kept filling up the cups. Just as I finished filling them and was closing them up, it hit me… I had the dish SOAP, not the dishwasher DETERGENT. HUGE difference. I wiped out the cups and refilled them with dishwasher detergent. Apparently I didn’t quite get it all. Here’s the result…

Moral of the story: Don’t do the dishes when you’re sick!
Luckily I had only left a little soap in the dishwasher and everything is fine now. I just had a little soap on the floor to clean up. I can just imagine what would have happened if it had not clicked in time.
