Perk # 35: I Get To Escape Dish Duty

While I love big family dinners, I hate the clean up afterwards.  I hate it so much, in fact, that I have earned myself the nickname “Eat and Run”.   I don’t pride myself on being inflicted with the Dine and Dash Syndrome, but when that turkey coma kicks in, I fall a victim.  As I shamefacedly slept off those extra calories, I am sure remarks were being made behind my back about my dirty dish avoidance.  But that was before cancer.  Even when I half heartedly offer to help with the dishes now, I just get shooed away to a welcoming couch.  I almost felt sorry for my sister, Sherry last Sunday when she hinted about her hysterectomy in an attempt to escape dish duty.  But hey, it’s been seven weeks, she has milked that baby for all it was worth!  Now me on the other hand, I can probably get another year out of this if I play my cards right.  Ahhh, I can’t wait for Christmas Dinner at Mom’s.

Tip:  If you have cancer, you have a ready- made excuse to avoid dish duty.

  1. I had to laugh at this one cuz. I actually lol. Although my 14 year old son tells me that old people (people over 20) shouldn’t write lol. He said that lol was invented by young people and it’s creepy if old people use it. bahahahahaha Take care and keep writing. 🙂

  2. I hate dish duty too. But since I have had cancer everyone shoos me away from the kitchen too. For which I am etenally grateful I might add. Even though I have finished my chemo a year ago I am still shooed away from the kitchen. At this stage I know it isn’t going to last, so I will take it as long as I can get away with it.
