I actually don't mind washing dishes by hand.
Good thing, seeing that our dishwasher is broke.
There you are, just you and the dishes, letting warm soapy water flow through your fingers, and before you know it you start having ideas. Ideas about life, about living, about goals, about the past and future.
I betcha a lot of great ideas and inventions throughout history were first visualized right at the kitchen sink.
Einstein probably thought of relativity while scrubbing spaghetti sauce from his flatware.
Beethoven probably heard the 9th while rinsing his soup bowls.
Gates probably envisioned personal computers while drying his sippy cup.
And it goes without saying that the inventor of the dishwasher thought it up right there at the kitchen sink.
Like I said, I don't mind washing the dishes. And maybe someday I'll come up with a great idea of my own.
Like how to keep dishwashers from breaking.
