The dish bandit

Things are ramping up again here in Empresspattiland. My lists have lists. Our Daughters wedding is just a few weeks away. Life around here is hitting maximum osculation.

I’d been worrying about who would keep Monster the wonderbunny while we are away. Luckily, I had once Iguana-sat for friends and boy howdy – did they owe me.

“Sure” he said when I called him. “By the way, we’ll be out of town for a few weeks. Will you water my plants?”

No problem. I stopped by on my way home from the gym. It occurred to me that they must have left home in a big hurry, leaving dishes in the sink. I loaded them in the dishwasher, watered the plants, double locked the front door and left.

Next day my buddy called me. “How’s vacation?” I asked him.

“We leave tomorrow,” he said to me. “Did you come over, do our dishes and lock me out of my house?”

I just couldn’t stop laughing.
