Labor saving

So. Last night was the traditional pizza-with-extra-treyf on paper plates, and today the switching of the dishes. After gathering together all the remaining unwashed Passover dishes (including my Best Reader doing the important task of going through the fridge for bowls containing leftovers), rinsing them, and flinging them into the dishwasher, it was clear that there simply weren't enough dishes to justify running the dishwasher. Even after grabbing any of the year-round dishes that could be said to need a wash, the thing was mostly empty.

In fact, the sum total came to seven dishes and seven pieces of silverware from the Passover set. This is what I get for catching up yesterday after lunch.

Well, and what I'm saying is: even after it becoming very clear that there was no way I was going to run the dishwasher, and that it made no sense to postpone actually packing the passover dishes until after dinner tonight off the regular ones, it still took me ten minutes to talk myself into just washing the damn dishes by hand. I mean! Washing dishes by hand, like some sort of wild animal in the wilderness. Isn't that just declaring defeat?

I'm not kidding, though. Ten minutes.
