...separating the silverware, into separate sections while putting it into the dishwasher. When you take it out, you just grab the one section with the spoons and put it away. Forks, put away. Knives, done. It beats separating it while emptying the dishwasher.
Lauren has been doing this for a while and, one day, I figured it out. I was putting away the clean dishes and I realized that all the butter knives were in one compartment. I was actually floored with the genius of this way of thinking. It was like the greatest invention ever. My wife invented the greatest kept domestic secret on the planet.
A few days later we were at my friend Bob’s house for a dinner party. I was helping him clean up and noticed that he was separating the silverware before putting it into the dishwasher.
It was then that I realized I am just an idiot.
Lauren is still a genius.
They should teach this in Home-Ec.
