10/14/2005: "The 34 stages of macaroni and cheese decomposition"
I have *always* hated washing dishes...even just rinsing them off to load in a dishwasher. Every week I do laundry, vaccum, mop, and scrub down the counters...but often even though the entire house is sparkling clean there will still be a pile of dirty dishes and/or brushes in the sink. I am "usually" forced to clean them around the time I can't fit the tea kettle under the faucet anymore.
But, for weeks now there has been this small pan of green macaroni and cheese, (I know it's from a long time ago because I can't remember the last time I ate mac and cheese), and since it magically doesn't smell bad, I just continue to ignore it. But this morning since I couldn't fit the kettle under the faucet anymore, I used the handheld sprayer to fill up my tea pot but I accidentally hit the m and c with it, and a plumb of green dust blew up into my face. It was so nasty I had to run and jump in the shower again.
Anyway, my party is this weekend and I've invited loads of people so it's getting down to the wire between me and m and c. I don't think it's going to magically biodegrade before Sat. so I'm probably going to have to deal with it tonight. One of us has gotta go. Wish me luck!
