I'd rather discuss that toenail lint you get from black socks....

1. Ooooh. My husband gets that
His black socks make his toenails look grey. I call him "corpse feet".

3. That's too funny...
Especially at night if they're cold and he has to snuggle against you to warm them...

5. He's usually the warm one. I have poor circulation
in my extremities so I'm usually the one who warms them on him. That's good, because his feet are gross. :scared:

2. So, hand wash? Or dishwasher?
I loathe doing dishes. But I don't have a dishwasher, so I wash by hand.

7. Hand wash...
Our house is too small to have a dishwasher without tearing out some cabinets.

4. Why do you love Pete?
and do dishes for him? Don't you have your own dishes to wash?

8. I love Pete...
Because he's my uncle.

(Actually I haven't seen him in years. But we can talk about him if it keeps me from the dishes.)

10. Plastic is bad...
It doesn't biodegrade well.

Paper plates, though, might be something to consider...

9. Why are you putting black socks in the refrigerator.
Sometimes to tease Ahknaten (who tends to change topics rapidly) I'll play 'slow' and conflate topics.

Drives him insane.

13. Changing topics quickly...
I hope the socks get changed that quickly...or at least as often.

11. What brand of dishwashing liquid do you use?
I use Dawn....I heard a comedian once say that one should never have more dishes than one is willing to wash should they all get dirty...

Excellent advice I would say....

12. We use something from Outpost (local health store)...
It biodegrades well and is unscented for those of us who have reactions to some scents.
