This vignette is a short tale with a quite strange title. It is a story for married folks. It is particularly meant for couples busily racing through life doing “important stuff” and missing the paradise that marriage can be. What can an activity as repulsive and mundane as washing dishes possibly have to do with love and happiness? Read it and see – 10 minutes and no money. More
What do vacations to exotic places, beautiful and sumptuous surroundings, exciting venues, exhilarating activities, new and interesting people, appointments meant for royalty, and washing the dishes all have in common? Obviously, they are all prerequisites for an invigorating and enviable marriage experience. But, wait a minute. Washing the dishes? What if someone told you that none of the mentioned items is a perquisite for a wonderful marriage, except washing the dishes? You would tell them that they lost their minds. Ten minutes from now you might change your mind instead of losing it. Look for yourself.
Joseph Badame is a retired architect living in New Jersey. He is spending his remaining years working on projects to honor his late wife who was a master teacher. This book is one of his endeavors to pay tribute to her memory.
