I rotated the glasses today. When we had a dishwasher, it would take up to 2 weeks for it to become full enough to actually run the thing. But now that we don't have a dishwasher, dishes in the sink for longer than a day drive me nutty. It's not hard to keep up on with only 2 of us. So today as I was washing the few glasses we had used, I became bothered that we continually use the same 2 or 3 glasses and the ones in the back of the cupboard never get used. Terrified to one day find they've collected dust, I rotated the glasses. Like I said, fascinating.
Which reminds me of a random tidbit from San Francisco: we went to church there and found ourselves in the dental student ward. Pretty much all couples our age with toddlers crawling all over the benches. We had several surprise visits from underneath the bench from these adventurous tots. Anywho- a very nice young couple gave us a ride home when they saw us staring at our city map trying to find the nearest public transit line. Here's the point- they were telling us how much they pay in rent to live in the heart of San Francisco. Old school, 70's style, one-bedroom apartment with no laundry and NO dishwasher (instant bond obviously), and guess how much they pay? $1950/month. And no, that doesn't include the $300/month they pay for their ONE parking space. I was astounded. I'll never complain about rent again. (unless I've since forgotten about this story, then naturally I would complain...)
