That's just GROSS

I'm here to tell you another difference between males and females.

The males in my household were loading the dishwasher. A rather rambunctious and stupid fly zoomed into the dishwasher just as the door was being closed.

The guys saw it.
Closed the door anyway, and kept it closed.
Started the dishwasher.

Part way through, they opened the door, peered in and saw the fly floating in the sudsy water.

What did they do?

Left it.

Left it and closed the door and let the dishwasher finish its cycle. With a DEAD FLY INSIDE.

They didn't think anything about it.
It will go down the drain port.
It will be hot enough to sterilize anything in there, no worries. No problems. It's all clean.

THEY. LEFT. A . DEAD. FLY. IN. MY. DISHWASHER. AND. WASHED. MY. DISHES, AND FRIGGEN NEVER TOLD ME UNTIL THEY WERE ALL UNLOADED AND IN USE!!!!

If it were me, the lone female in the household, I would have done one of two things.

Let the fly back out.
OR
Scooped out the dead insect and let the hot water and soap sterilize and clean my dishes as it should.

But, I would NEVER ever wash dishes with a dead bug!

And they STILL don't see anything wrong with what they did.

What would YOU have done?

Time - it's a kid thing

What do I mean?
If you are a parent, then you know.
Time is measured by how much your kids change year to year. They are the visual marker of time's passage.
Until they stop growing out of shoes and clothes, they keep you hopping, wondering and running.

On Sunday, my nephew graduated from High School. I remember when he was 2 years old (I have the cutest picture of him back then )and now he's 18. He's changed and grown and matured to become a very level-headed, handsome and funny young man. And he can do a stare contest like no tomorrow. lol.

It made me proud to be his aunt, and it astounded me that I'm so ....well...old. But that's what life's journey is all about. We don't stay static and kids insure that.

Hope your day is full of wonderful revelations too!
